Lionesses for Team of The Year?

Bookmakers William Hill predict the Lionesses are in with a great chance of winning this year’s BBC Sports Personality Team Of The Year. 

Britain’s biggest bookie make it odds of 6/4 that the England Women’s Football Team win the Team Of The Year – a short price considering there are big hopes in 2015 such as the England cricket team in the Ashes and the Home Nations at the Rugby World Cup. 

After a terrific tournament in Canada and beating Germany to third place with a 1-0 playoff win, the England Women’s team have exceeded all expectations.

“The Lionesses have played some brilliant football and given England something to be proud of,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
