MANCHESTER, England, June 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- On line sports betting firm have paid out on Frank Lampard's strike that clearly crossed the line. founder Fred Done,

"I'm absolutely gutted I am not paying out on an England victory. Like so many times with our national team we are left thinking what if. And that Lampard strike was clearly over the line. I know it doesn't make up for the despair but any punters who backed Lamps to score anytime I will pay out."

Frank Lampard was 9/4 to score anytime and Betfred also quote 9/4 that Capello quits before the end of the World Cup.

Fred Done added,

"Personally I would like Fabio Capello to stay. It's the so-called golden generation who have not performed. I opened my first ever shop in 1967 after backing England to win the World Cup and I wanted to pay out on the Three Lions. Like the whole nation, I am gutted."

However if Fabio Capello does quit, Betfred make Fulham's Roy Hodgson the 3/1 favourite to become the next England manager.
