Monday (July 4th) will see England’s U17s side take on one of the country’s oldest footballing rivals.
The young lions are seen as underdogs against Germany in their U17 World Cup quarter final matchup and patriotic football betting fans might be tempted to have a flutter on them reaching the semis, where they would play either France or Mexico.
With odds of 3/1, bwin.com has given England’s young hopefuls a good chance of getting through and those who use their free £25 bet to back the Three Lions could walk away with £100 if they are successful.
However, punters who fancy Germany and place a similar wager on England’s opponents could be handed £42.50 if they are victorious in normal time.
A draw might be a fairly boring bet, but at 27/10 it might look attractive to those who are more intent on making money than following their heart.
Using bwin’s £25 free bet, customers who correctly predict a stalemate in the 90 minutes could walk away with £92.50.
England needed penalties to dispatch Argentina in the second last 16 after a 1-1 draw and will know they have to raise their game to beat the Germans, who triumphed over the USA to reach the quarters.
The victory over the Americans was a convincing one, with goals from Mitchell Weiser, Koray Guenter, Samed Yesil and Marvin Ducksch.
Both sides will be going all out to make it to the semis of the tournament in Mexico.
Victory could potentially set up a tie with the home side, if they can overcome Italy in their own quarter final.
Germany are priced at 2/5 to progress and using bwin’s free £25 bet to back this outcome would return £35 if they do.
However, it might be more lucrative to back England to get through, with the 17/10 odds returning £67.50 on a successful £25 bet.
