IT was a huge win for England to kickstart the 2022 World Cup against Iran earlier today.
And it was a huge win for one William Hill punter who backed the correct result at massive odds of 200/1!
One punter had a cash out nightmare in England’s thumping winGetty
But it was the opposite story for one unlucky punter who cashed their bet out a bit too early.
Gareth Southgate’s men ran out 6-2 winners against a poor Iranian side who offered little across the 114 minutes of play.
While most didn’t see that performance or scoreline coming, two William Hill customers backed 6-2 at the huge odds.
Both sticking £10 on, one joyous punter would have been over the moon to see Iran score a late penalty as the clock ticked over 100 minutes to finish that result.
While another punter must have been sick to the stomach, having cashed out their own £10 punt for a measly £14!

England’s chances of winning have been cut to 13/2 from 7/1 by the firm.
While two-goal hero Bukayo Saka is now into 20/1 from 100/1 for the Golden Boot.
William Hill Spokesperson, Lee Phelps, said: “It might have only been against Iran but England couldn’t have started their World Cup campaign in better fashion.
“The 6-2 victory has seen us cut the Three Lions’ price from 7/1 to 13/2 and we’ve also cut Bukayo Saka’s Golden Boot price from 100/1 to 20/1 after he scored twice.
“The resounding scoreline, which was priced at 200/1, was correctly predicted by just two customers, both of whom had £10 on it. It wasn’t quite as good for another though, who had £9 on 6-2, but cashed out for just £14!”
