WATCH: Steve Freeth on World Cup last 16 and England v France

The first four last-16 matches at the World Cup saw the favourites oblige, with the Netherlands, Argentina, France and England all progressing.

It was the best possible scenario for customers, with bet365’s Early Payout Offer also being triggered in all four games – two of which were before half-time – with a 10% bonus applied to four-folds as a result of bet365’s Soccer Accumulator Bonus, with a 25% bonus available for eight-folds. 

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “The group stages was okay from a bookmaker's point of view, but with the first four favourites [in the last 16] winning... I have to mention the Early Payout Offer, which is an amazing concession. You get paid out on the Full Time Result market if your side goes two goals ahead, and it's not singles only - it's Bet Builders and multis!"

England put Senegal to the sword with three goals after a couple of scares in the first half, with 19-year-old Jude Bellingham looking imperious.

The Dortmund midfielder opened at 3/1 for the FIFA Young Player Award and 100/1 for the Golden Ball, with both prices shortening on the back of his man-of-the-match display against Senegal.

The Golden Ball, however, looks like Kylian Mbappe’s to lose after scoring a brace against Poland. The PSG man is now 11/8 for the Golden Ball and 8/13 to be Top Goalscorer, where he’s currently two goals clear of his nearest challengers.

Watch the video above to get Steve Freeth’s reaction to the weekend’s World Cup matches and his take on England v France.
