England are now the third favourites with Ladbrokes to host the 2018 World Cup.
On the back of damning panorama coverage they have drifted out to 3/1 with Spain & Portugal the new 5/2 second favourites.
Market leaders Russia have hardened to 8/11 which is the shortest price England touched as little as two weeks ago.
Only the Belgium & Holland bid at 40/1 is less fancied than England’s.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It’s doom and gloom for the English bid at the moment. The Panorama coverage opened a can of worms and punters believe it’s now Russia’s to lose.”
