William Hill have cut the odds of England winning the World Cup after being drawn in a relatively easy group. They were 20/1 before the draw was made but have been trimmed to 16/1 – making them seventh favourites.

“Our initial reaction is that England’s job has been made easier by landing in a relatively comfortable group and their odds have been trimmed accordingly,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

In 2014 the betting industry turned over £1bn for the first time on a World Cup and this time around look set for an even bigger sum.
