ENGLAND v CROATIA

ENGLAND v CROATIA.
HEARTBREAK FOR ENGLAND, AGONY FOR SPORTINGBET

After Israel handed England a massive lifeline on Saturday online company Sportingbet were pretty certain England were on their way to Austria and Switzerland next summer. So in a bid to drum up some business on this tie they decided to offer all their customers full refunds on all single bets of up to £200 on the England v Croatia match if England somehow failed to qualify.

We’ll we all know what happened next…

Chris Graham, Sportsbook Promotions Manager explains all:

I'm afraid we failed to realise how bad England and Steve McClaren really were and have caught a massive cold here as we shovel back most of our turnover to our eager customers. Thanks to Croatia winning 3-2 we have refunded almost £100,000 on this promotion and the office is like a morgue as we all contemplate England not playing in Euro 2008 next summer and the nightmare scenario of this payout. Steve McClaren you have a lot to answer for!
