Football fans in Sheffield are some of the most patriotic ahead of England’s big game against Uruguay.

According to bookmaker William Hill, 82 per cent of all bets on the match in Sheffield are on for an England victory, which is higher than the English average of 75 per cent.

England are currently favourites to win the match on Thursday.

Joe Crilly, William Hill spokesman, said: “After a strong showing against Italy and Uruguay’s capitulation against Costa Rica, England fans in Sheffield definitely fancy the Three Lions to kick start their campaign with a victory against Uruguay.”

The statistics were taken from William Hill’s World Cup website Bet Nation.
