Switzerland v England will kick-off the Three Lions' Euro 2016 qualifying campaign on Monday night and the latest money back special from Betvictor will protect your bets if they get off to a poor start.
It's fair to say that England are under a bit of a cloud at the moment as Roy Hodgson attempts to build for the future following a woeful World Cup and the retirements of both Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.
Should things continue to go against Roy's boys, Betvictor will be on hand to pick you up with a refund on selected markets for this Monday's clash at St. Jacobs Park. The firm which welcomes new players with up to £25 free bet will refund your losing Correct Score, First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Half-Time/Full-Time, Scorecast or Spincast bet as a free bet up to £10, if England lose to Switzerland.
A glance at the latest match odds in the top right of this screen (scroll down if reading on your mobile) shows that the home side are slight favourites for the tie. Schweizer Nati recovered well from a bad start in Brazil to reach the last 16 of the World Cup, but were knocked out by Argentina thanks to a last gasp Angel Di Maria strike deep into Extra Time. Vladimir Petkovic would seem to have inherited a workable squad then and England could be in for a tough 90 minutes in Basel.
The away side have suffered an injury setback with striker Daniel Sturridge ruled out after injuring his thigh during Friday's training session at St George's Park. Both Rickie Lambert and Danny Wellbeck are therefore in contention to start in attack with new skipper Wayne Rooney who converted from the penalty spot in last week's 1-0 friendly win over Norway.
The Three Lions were less than inspiring in that match and this will be a much tougher encounter as the rebuilding continues.
