Time has run out for the England gaffer, as history is set to repeat itself at Euro 2020. After a disappointing defeat to underdogs Iceland at Euro 2016 in the round of 16, Gareth Southgateâ€™s Three Lions are set for an early exit at next monthâ€™s tournament.
A supercomputer study conducted by bookmaker Casumo revealed that England would be defeated in the round of 16 â€“ in six separate simulations! On each of those six occasions, Southgate was shortly relieved of his duties.
You can understand fansâ€™ frustrations with an exit at the first knockout stage in back-to-back tournaments â€“ which proved the final nail in the coffin for Southgateâ€™s tenure as boss. Itâ€™s worth noting that England havenâ€™t won a major tournament since the 1966 World Cup.
Despite being the second-favourites to win the tournament at odds of 11/2, itâ€™s fair to say that football isnâ€™t coming home, after all. Elsewhere, the same study reported that leading favourites France will be crowned champions â€“ and are good value at a price of 5/1.
