Southgate 7/1 To Lead England To Glory… 25/1 To Do An Allardyce

In the most unsurprising story of the day, Gareth Southgate has been appointed England manager and William Hill are offering 7/1 that the Three Lions win either the Euros or the World Cup under his watchful eye. He is just 7/4 to still be England manager by the start of 2021.

It is 25/1 that Gareth Southgate is no longer the manager of England by the time they kick off their next game against Germany.

“Surely this news will come as a surprise to no one and hopefully, he can now lead the side to glory,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

20/1       Gareth Southgate to win his first 4 games as permanent – Germany, Lithuania, Scotland, France

7/1          England to win a European Championship or World Cup with Gareth Southgate as manager (1/16 no to)

When will Gareth Southgate leave the England job: 16/1 2017 or earlier; 5/2 2018; 6/1 2019; 2/1 2020; 7/4 still England manager in 2021

8/1          England to be knocked out of the next European Championship finals on penalties

25/1       Fail to be the permanent England manager for the next England match (vs Germany 22nd March)
