Latest News


England Euro 2021 Squad Odds

Considering the growth of talent since England's famous 2018 World Cup run, fans and pundits alike have been debating which players should make Gareth Southgate’s England squad, with a huge emphasis on their famous youngsters.

Over the past two seasons, these youngsters have gone from strength to strength and will aim to impress over the 2020/21 Premier League campaign. With two transfer windows between now and Euro 2021, it is important to consider that players will come into and out of contention depending on what transfers may take place, especially talented youngsters who may go out on loan and impress away from their parent clubs.

In the same way, many youth players turned senior pros have impressed over the past season and may get more playing time over the coming season, with the likes of Mason Greenwood and Bukayo Saka making a late stride towards Euro 2020 this year. So, with a plethora of young stars only going from strength to strength, let's take a look at who will make the England squad for Euro 2021.

England goalkeepers odds for Euro 2021

Jordan Pickford has been England’s number one for a few years now and has remained the first-choice since his famous performances at the 2018 World Cup, despite strong competition. There is, therefore, no surprise that he is also Sky Bet's number one favourite to be selected for the Euro 2021 squad at odds of 1/33.

Manchester United loanee, Dean Henderson, is also worth more than just a look with odds at 1/6. The 23-year-old has impressed for Sheffield United this season, keeping 10 clean sheets and contributing crucial saves to his sides' remarkable first season back in the Premier League.

Recently, there has been the debate on Henderson replacing David De Gea at United for next season, and the Englishman is at low odds to make Southgate’s list after another remarkable season.

Outside of Pickford and Henderson, England’s third-choice keeper is a little harder to predict. Between Nick Pope, Tom Heaton and Aaron Ramsdale, it is Pope who is the favourite of the three to be selected at odds of 1/6, with Heaton and Ramsdale at 3/1.

However, with a season to play and transfer windows still to come, Ramsdale may have an outside chance for Southgate’s selection. The young talent is still only 21 and has impressed for the England U21s and in Bournemouth’s Premier League campaign this season. With teams like Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea reportedly bidding for him, Ramsdale will be a name for any punter to consider.

England defenders Euro 2021 odds

For many years, England’s defence has been questioned and criticised for not being good enough to compete in major competitions, particularly since the likes of Rio Ferdinand and John Terry retired from international football, without any reliable replacements for them.

This tournament could, therefore, be an opportunity for young centre-backs to make themselves an England regular. With this said, however, the Sky Bet favourite to go to Euro 2021 is understandably the United captain, Harry Maguire at 1/50.

Outside odds worth considering, although, are the likes of Japhet Tanganga at 5/1, Fikayo Tomori at 5/4 and Mason Holgate 3/1, considering all are making significant impacts at their club.

Tomori has exploded onto the scene this season with his modern defensive style, becoming a first-team player for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, giving Southgate a significant reason to select the young centre half for his side in a year's time.

Spurs youngster, Tanganga, is also an outsider to consider, as he has played a role in Spurs' back three – a formation some believe Southgate could employ for the Euro’s, making the odds of 5/1 hard to ignore, considering the youngster's performances already.

Right-back Kyle Walker was an England regular for many seasons but has found his way out the squad entirely since the rise of players like Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kieran Trippier.

Interestingly, Walker's odds are priced at 5/2, and although perhaps not the player he once was, he will still be in with a shout, especially considering his versatility in moving to centre-back under Southgate.

On the other hand, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has had an incredible season with United making the most tackles in the Premier League thus far. Many out there have argued his defensive brilliance should give him the nod over Alexander-Arnold in the starting XI, which makes the United star's 6/4 price to be included in the squad very appealing.

Elsewhere, 2018 World Cup hero, Trippier, is also worth considering at 2/1, as is the vastly improved Luke Shaw at 6/5. Also, Tyrone Mings is priced at 7/4 and should Aston Villa still be in the Premier League in the summer of 2021, even he is worth a punt.

Bettors should also consider taking a look at Chris Smalling who's resurgence this year at Roma has had everyone talking - the United loanee is an eye-catching 4/1, despite his form.

England midfielders Euro 2021 odds

England’s midfield poses another dilemma for those seeking to add players to their bet slips. There are not many Englishmen in the midfield spots who are nailed on to head to the Euro's next year, with Jordan Henderson at 1/16, perhaps the only one who can confidently believe he will be on the plane.

Players such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Declan Rice and James Maddison all have odds of 1/6, but have all seen themselves excluded from the squad at some point over the past two years.

A lot can change over the next 12 months, especially for younger players like Maddison and Rice, although, as of now, not many will be guaranteed to be starters, but they should be confident to be included in the squad.

Then there are players like Todd Cantwell, who has had an impressive season with Norwich City and will certainly be on the radar of many top 10 sides next season. At 8/1, Cantwell is a fantastic price considering he could be playing for a top club next season, whilst potentially continuing his stellar form.

Chelsea’s Mason Mount has scored six and assisted four goals in his debut season with the Blues, and has already made his mark on the England squad with six appearances and one goal thus far. Now, at 8/11 to go to Euro 2021, Mount is certainly worth a shout, considering he will only get better from now until then.

Outsiders such as Leeds' Kalvin Phillips should be on bettors' minds, considering he will likely be playing Premier League football next season - Philipps is 3/1 to go to Euro 2021.

At the same time, Phil Foden's 6/4 price is equally as appealing, considering he may well step into David Silva's shoes next season with the Spaniard departing Manchester City. Foden is expected to get more and more game time as time goes on and the U17 World Cup winner could soon be an England regular.

England forwards Euro 2021 odds

Interestingly, Sky Bet price Jamie Vardy at 12/1 to be selected for the squad next year, despite being the Premier League's joint-top scorer for this season. Indeed, Vardy has retired from international football, but should he continue his form into next year, no doubt Southgate will be blowing up the Leicester City star's phone.

On the other hand, the forwards for the Three Lions will most likely be similar to what we have seen before, with the odds for Harry Kane being 1/20, whilst Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford are all 1/16.

There are, however, some promising odds to consider after impressive performances this season, such as Tammy Abraham at 5/6 and Dominic Calvert-Lewin 5/2. Abraham and Calvert-Lewin, have bagged 13 Premier League goals this season, one less than Rashford, making their odds promising for next year's tournament.

With another 12 months to go, both strikers will surely continue to impress and there is a good chance they will both have strong seasons during the 2020/2021 campaign before the summer.

Lastly, Mason Greenwood has fantastic odds of 4/1, as he is likely to become an integral part of United's setup for many, many years. This season, Greenwood has 12 goals in all competitions and has proved he is a star for the future with some stellar performances at just 18 years old.

There is little doubt the United youngster will be an England regular in the future, and with Euro's now a year away, there could be plenty of Greenwood goals from now until then.

Outside England Euro 2021 odds to consider

Tom Heaton (3/1) - the Aston Villa keeper could be injury-free next summer and get himself back in contention.

Brandon Williams (4/1) - the 19-year-old is a United regular already and constantly impressing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Bukayo Saka (5/4) - Bukayo Saka would have been considered this summer, meaning he will surely be in with a shout next year, considering he has already made a name for himself at just 18.

Fikayo Tomori (5/4) - The Chelsea man made his England debut this year and continues to be important to Lampard's young Chelsea side moving forward.

Mason Greenwood (4/1) - Already one of Europe's brightest youngsters and he will surely be considered, should he continue his excellent form into next season.

Mason Holgate (3/1) - The Everton defender made a name for himself during the torrid Marco Silva era and has continued to impress under Carlo Ancelotti. At 23, Holgate could be set for a big season next year.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (5/2) - With three strikers most likely going to Euro 2021, Calvert-Lewin's form this year should definitely play a part in his odds for next year.

Phil Foden (6/4) - In Pep Guardiola's eyes, Foden is the brightest young talent in world football, and with City legend Silva leaving, Foden may well be a regular for Guardiola next season.
