Bet you should have done

Germany -1 to beat Ireland 11/8

The term 'fill your boots' could have been applied to this bet and, within an hour of the start, it was safe to go spending your winnings.

Against an injury-ravaged and dreadful Ireland team, the second best team in the world were better than even money to win by two goals or more.

Generous barely comes close to describing such odds.

For the little bit more adventurous, Germany were 7/2 to win by three or more goals and 10/1 to win by four or more which, unfortunately, would have proved to be every bit as comfortable.
