It was a long summer for the Britons as they closely followed the Euro 2020 drama and the big final against Italy in their own backyard. Soon after, the Tokyo Olympic Games began, providing two weeks of entertaining sporting action across a wide range of different disciplines.

Kane looks the value bet in chase for Premier League Golden Boot

THE summer of fevered transfer activity in the English soccer Premier League has seen several ‘new’ faces emerge in the betting for top goalscorer in season 2021/22.
