Roy Hodgson’s men took an early lead through Wayne Rooney but were pegged back in the second half and rode their luck a touch but the point nevertheless just 2/5 (Coral) for them to go on and top Group H.
England have four matches to go and Coral make them 9/4 to win them all while it’s 1/2 for them to top the pile ahead of current leaders Montenegro.
“Three of England’s remaining four matches in qualifying are at home so we still expect Roy Hodgson’s men to qualify as winners of Group H, but England will most probably have to win all four matches to automatically qualify through to the World Cup finals in Brazil,” said Coral’s Tim Reynolds.
