Russia (or the Soviet Union as they were then) were the inaugural winners of the then European Championships back in 1960 and have also finished runners up three times so they have a richer pedigree in the competition than England.

Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, however, they remain regular qualifiers for the tournament but have only gone beyond the Group stage once when they reached the semi-final, under former Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink, back in 2008.

The Three Lions are 4/6 at BetVictor to top Group B with Russia 10/3, Wales 9/2 and Slovakia 8/1; Russia finished eight points behind Austria in qualifying Group G but did finish second, edging out Sweden who went on to make this summer’s tournament via the play-offs.

Leonid Slutski’s side conceded just five goals in their 9 qualifying games,which suggests they will be difficult to break down but it would be disappointing if Roy Hodgson’s side didn’t make a winning start. Yes, the Three Lions have been disappointed before in similar contests but this looks a gilt-edged opportunity. England are Even money at BetVictor to win in Marseille with Russia 31/10 and the draw 9/4.

Roy Hodgson has an excellent array of inform strikers at his disposal ahead of the competition and it will be interesting to see if the England boss takes just the four strikers or whether he shoehorns Manchester United’s exciting young striker Marcus Rashford into the 23-man squad.

England stage of elimination odds from BetVictor:

Last 16 - 2/1

Quarter Final - 3/1

Group stage - 5/1

Semi-final - 5/1

Runner up - 7/1

Winners - 8/1        

There has been much written and debated and that will continue to be the case between now and June 11th as to whether England captain Wayne Rooney deserves his place in the starting XI, but we are convinced he will start and make him a 1/5 shot to play in England’s opening fixture.

Meanwhile Daniel Sturridge will be desperate to impress and if the Three Lions are going to progress deep into the competition, as many believe they will, then the Liverpool striker will get plenty of opportunities and, whilst he is unlikely to start against Russia, the 8/1 for him to finish the tournament as top England goalscorer is too big.

Sturridge will be fresher than most in France and you couldn’t say Harry Kane exactly finished the season with a flourish despite a magnificent campaign at White Hart Lane. Kane and Jamie Vardy both found the back of the net against Turkey at the weekend and are ahead of Sturridge in the pecking order at this moment time, but the Liverpool forward could easily force his way into the starting XI as the Three Lions progress and 8/1 looks like an excellent price.

Top England goalscorer in Euro 2016:

Harry Kane - 15/8

Wayne Rooney - 7/2

Jamie Vardy - 4/1

Daniel Sturridge - 8/1

Dele Alli - 10/1

England had a magnificent and proud record in qualification with a perfect 10 out of 10 wins, 32 goals scored and only three conceded; false dawns and England go hand-in-hand but odds of 9/2 at BetVictor for England to maintain their perfect campaign during the Group stages is great value.
