The bettor staked £10 on the six-fold, which would have returned £1710 if all six picks had won.

One bumper selection included Belgium HT/ France FT at 30/1 in their Nations League semi-final showdown.

The first completed selection was the UAE and Iran to be drawing at the break with the visitors winning in the second half.

The second breezed in at 2/5 with Australia brushing aside Oman 3-1 courtesy of goals from Anwer Mabil, Martin Boyle and Mitchell Duke.

The third pick… wasn’t so easy.

The punter needed China to beat Vietnam with the match being a draw at half time.

China took a 2-1 lead in the 75th minute but a stoppage-time equaliser for Vietnam looked to have ended the bet.

£10 stake = £3,760 returns

However, in the 95th-minute We Lei scored to capture all three points and keep this punter’s chances alive.

But there was more drama set to follow when France pulled off a stunning recovery to beat Belgium 3-2.

Roberto Martinez’s side boasted a 2-0 lead at the break but Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe levelled with 20 minutes remaining.

Romelu Lukaku then had a goal disallowed three minutes before Theo Hernandez clinched a 90th minute winner to secure this incredible 30/1 shout.

With Venezuela beating at Brazil at half-time in the early hours of Friday morning – our bettor decided to cash out for £3,760.

It was looking like the wrong decision when Brazil turned things around – but Mexico failing to beat Canada would have seen the the customer leave with nothing.
