England’s latest no show in failing to beat Montenegro at Wembley sealed a night of woe for punters according to Ladbrokes – but the Three Lions are still 1/6 to qualify from their group.
With Northern Ireland being held to a draw in the Faroe Islands and the Republic of Ireland having to settle for a point in Slovakia, the bookies were left cheering.
Scotland’s brave defeat at home to Spain now leaves them as 8/1 chances to qualify from their group with the Republic of Ireland 6/4 to progress to the European Championships finals in 2012.
David Williams of Ladbrokes told betrescue.com: “It was a dismal night for England and their punters, but the 0-0 draw was wonderful news for the bookies. It would have been too much for us to ask of Scotland to halt the Spanish bandwagon so we’re not complaining.”
