ngland have been installed as joint favourites to win next summer’s rearranged European Championships after the final line-up for the competition was confirmed on Thursday night.

Scotland, Hungary, Slovakia and North Macedonia came through qualifying playoffs to take the final four places in the 24-team tournament, which has been pushed back a year because of the coronavirus pandemic.  

Gareth Southgate’s men are joint favourites at 5/1 with Betfair, alongside world champions France and the no.1 side on the planet according to Fifa rankings, Belgium, who England face in the Nations League on Sunday.

Defending champions Portugal are priced up at 14/1 while 2016 semi-finalists Wales are a huge 100/1 and Scotland even bigger at 250/1.  

Elsewhere, England captain and World Cup golden boot winner Harry Kane is the 5/1 favourite to be the competition’s top scorer, with Romelu Lukaku, Kylian Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo among the other leading contenders.
