ENGLAND FANS will be Britain's most significant skivers on Thursday according to a poll commissioned by Ladbrokes.

The bookies surveyed countless football fans ahead of the Group B clash in Lens beginning at 2.00 and most of the Three Lions fans (54%) responded recommending they would bunk off work with a feigned illness in order to catch the game.

Not all respondents were so keen to take some time off for the match nevertheless, with fan Craig Gordon reacting: ‘I'm a self employed brickie – no possibility I'm losing a day's cash to watch England under perform as usual'.

Football fans on the other side of the Severn Bridge appear to be more honest, with 51% of Welsh advocates suggesting they will remain in work.

The bookies expect betting for the game will bring about a rise in mobile bets from those stuck in workplaces and factories, with as much as ₤ 1000 a second to be bet on mobile phones throughout the market in the hour preceding the match.

England are the odds-on favourites (4/7) to get their Euros mission back on track with a win for Wales priced at 11/2. The chances also recommend that despite jibes about Roy Hodgson's men not have enthusiasm, more England players will sing their nationwide anthem at 4/7 compared with their challengers at 5/4.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We're amazed at how many fans of both teams freely admit to planning to bunk off work for the huge match. After Saturday's results, we thought more Wales fans might have run the risk of the rage of their boss to watch their side.”

He included: “We're preparing for rises of traffic to our mobile app prior to begin as those chained to their desk get bets on without their manager discovering.”
