I’m on top of the world – and can’t wait until Wednesday for the Euros semi-final against Denmark at Wembley
For us to win four-nil against Ukraine on Saturday night was sensational. Alright – the opposition looked dead on their feet in Rome but you can only beat the teams put in front of you.
I just knew Harry Kane (above) would come good and return the faith shown in him by manager Gareth Southgate, who has proved himself right again by resisting calls to drop his skipper.
Kane’s double plus a trademark header from United’s Harry Maguire – and Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson scoring his first England goal – was more than enough to see us into the last four, and on the cusp of our first international tournament triumph since the 1966 World Cup.
A 4-0 win against Ukraine with Kane scoring first was 50/1 and plenty of you folk were on that while Brandon Hunter from Hartlepool took me to the cleaners with his pick your punt bet. He had £28.50 on 4-0 with Kane scoring twice and either United’s Harry Maguire or City’s John Stones scoring a header which landed him just over £5,000.
Kane, who has three Euro goals to his name now, is 7/2 with us to overtake Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick. Those two have both gone home of course having notched five goals apiece during the tournament – and are 7/4 shots.
City’s Raheem Sterling (above) figures too in the top goalscorer market with his three goals – and Betfred have him at 11/1 to be top scorer and 7/2 favourite to be the official player of the tournament.
