England have drifted from 25/1 to 28/1 to win the World Cup in Sky Bet's outright market after being drawn into what is considered to be a difficult group.

Roy Hodgson's men are 4/7 to qualify for the knockout stages and third favourites at 2/1 to win Group D, with Italy marginally favoured at 7/4, Uruguay 15/8 and Costa Rica considered the outsiders at 14/1.

Hosts Brazil remain tournament favourites at 100/30 while Argentina (9/2), Germany (11/2) follow, with holders Spain being pushed out from 11/2 to 7/1 after being placed in arguably the toughest group with Holland, Chile and Australia.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "We had already priced up the various permutations for the draw and there was relatively little difference in our hypothetical England prices, with 20/1 the shortest we would have gone and 33/1 the odds if Hodgson's men were placed with Brazil, Netherlands and USA.

"While the group looks difficult, we haven't pushed England's price out too much given the second round draw is favourable, with Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan in Group C.

"Belgium and Germany are currently the best backed sides in our outright book with England attracting relatively little interest."
