England made second favourites
Rivaldo and Ronaldo have scored seven goals between them in this World Cup
Rivaldo and Ronaldo are the bookies' favourites
England have been installed as second favourites to win the World Cup following their impressive 3-0 win over Denmark.

William Hill cut their odds from 11-2 to 4-1 while Coral shortened Sven-Goran Eriksson's odds to 7-2 from 5-1 after the comfortable victory in Niigata.

The victory over the Danes saw England clinch a quarter-final spot for the first time since Italia 90.

England's likely quarter-final opponents Brazil are tournament favourites, but they must beat Belgium on Monday to take their place in the last eight.

And bookies now offer 10-1 on England meeting old foes Germany in a repeat of the 1966 final on 30 June in Yokohama.

William Hill expect the betting turnover on the England-Denmark to match the record-breaking 12m staked on the England-Argentina game of 7 June.
