  1. Uruguay (if Cavani/Suazez are fit) are way too big to not have a look at. France played well v Argentina but let's just remember how utterly abject this Argentina side is. I also think Sweden have a decent shot v England. They are a tough team to break down and extremely dynamic on the break in transition. They can also match England at set plays which appears to be there only real tactic. I still don't rate the English CM pairing either.
  2. Does anyone know if Lukuaku is fit and likely to play v England? I know he had an ankle knock v Tunisia.
  3. Madness to think that a one goal win for Sweden and a two goal win for Germany will send Mexico home. Would be extremely harsh. If I had to predict it I would be inclined to back the draw and you’d imagine it’ll be a low scoring affair. I think Mexico are rightly slight favourites due to their performances so far but if Sweden get their noses in front I’d fancy them to hang on. I just don’t see Mexico winning all three group games.
  4. I agree on Peru. I've taken them to win. 2.5 is a juicy price. The Aussies are a committed but very average outfit who fail to play through their best player Tom Rogic, the only guy in the squad capable of doing something sublime. This World Cup is a huge deal for Peru and I'd have no reason to doubt their commitment here. They'll be backed by a big support and winning a match will still be a huge incentive for them. They haven't played badly either, perhaps just a little naive and lacking in composure in the final 3rd.
  5. Had they not been given a soft penalty it would have ended in a right comfortable walk in the park for England. A 2nd goal in the opening spell and they'd have been on the end of a Saudi Arabiaesque hammering. Tunisia had the goal scoring threat of Scotland playing 4-6-0 under Craig Levein.
  6. I'll take England to win to nil @ 2.00 Also CS 2-0 England @ 6.00 Don't think it'll be an easy game but England should win with a bit to spare. Assuming Southgate goes with the two holding mids they should be able to tighten up and close a game out comfortably against crap like Tunisia.
  7. Really fancy Cavani to get 2+ goals against the Saudis. I don't think I've ever seen a less dominant Cb pairing at the tournament. They quite literally lost every 50/50 in the air v the Russians. Will look into the odds on him scoring with his head too.
  8. I had a tasty little draw double on both Morocco/Iran and Spain/Portugal. Iranians:(
  9. Agree with Pep. Really fancy Croatia here especially given the Argies result. Wouldn't surprise me if they win the group. I just don't see it with Nigeria. Nothing to suggest they will get more than a draw here if lucky. Croatia can take control of the group with a win and fancy them to. Took Croatia with a boost of WilliamHill @1.75.
  10. If the Swiss can stay injury and suspension free I think they are in for a good tourney. Fancy them to take 2nd and give the Brazilians a tough game.
