France’s victory in the Nations League landed the final leg of a London-based student’s incredible football acca
Wedding bells are on the horizon for Ellyas Hamed, 32, who has won an incredible football bet at Betfred.
He wagered just £20 and won a whopping £81,600 on his five-fold accumulator.
He backed Chelsea to win the Champions League (16/1), Norwich to top the Championship (3/1), Hull to win League One (3/1), Cheltenham to finish top of the tree in League Two (4/1) and France to claim the Nations League (2/1).
The Italian-born politics student can now afford to get married – but first he’ll have to propose to his girlfriend!
Ellyas said: “It’s a massive boost for me to win so much from just £20. I’m set up for life – it’s a great cushion.”
The big Betfred winner went on: “I’m a Chelsea supporter and I fancied them to win the Champions League – but when it was City in the final I knew I would have to get a little lucky.
“Norwich were always going to come back up having been relegated from the Premier League, but I got lucky with them being champions.
“Regarding Hull, they had done well in the previous season so I fancied them – while Cheltenham was basically just a lucky one for me.
“I’ve got a girlfriend and now we can afford a reception when we get married. As well as putting some money away for that, I’m going to Paris for a holiday and I’ll probably get myself a new car – maybe a BMW.
Betfred boss Fred Done said: “This was a truly tremendous win. Ellyas has picked my pocket good and proper.
“Chelsea were nowhere near favourites for the Champions League when he placed the bet, and he’s shown his football knowledge in picking out the other four winners on his acca.
“I’m glad he’s got his future mapped out, and I’d like to pass my congratulations to him.”
