Japan World Cup

 

 

Japan     

Japan (win) v Poland @ $2.40

1.00am, Volgograd arena

With top spot available the Japs have everything to play for tonight. Not all top spots were created equal but this one is and the winner touted to play Belgium/England in the 16 but then Sweden/Switzerland in the quarters. With a small amount of luck, a little red carpet to the Semi Final.

On the other side, rumours have come out that the Polish made the pre World Cup Mexican party look like a McDonalds 13th birthday with major blow ups, fracturing the playing group on a night out before the first session way back in early June. Surprisingly on the outside is captain and talisman Robert lewandowski. With nothing left to play for I don’t see them bringing enough intensity to compete against an impressive Japanese side.

Prediction: 1 – 0

 

 

Senegal     

Senegal v Colombia (win) @ $1.80

Samera Arena, 1.00am

I think I missed a trick not going hard on Colombia in match day 2, they were impressive against the Japs in unfortunate circumstances and were far to good against Poland. Although Senegal are on four points, I think they have benefited from some uncharacteristic mistakes from opposition teams and will be no chance here.

Prediction: 1 – 2

 

 

England     Belgium

England (win or draw) v Belgium @ $1.33

Kaliningrad Stadium, 4.00am

I’m tempted to take England here but will play it safe. Martinez has openly said he’ll be resting players for this game with the idea of coming second to end up on the easier side of the draw. Given England’s history at World Cups and the negativity from the press, I don’t think Southgate is afforded this luxury. It’s 100% not a game worth getting up for and will probably rival France v Denmark on the pulling teeth scale.

Prediction: 1 – 0

 

 

     

Panama v Tunisia (BTTS) @ $1.67

Mordovia Arena, 4.00am

Both countries don’t have much to be proud off bar the canal and Victor Perez the flyweight world boxing champ from North Africa in the early 1930s, but both teams will channel this very small amount of self worth into this last World Cup game.

I think they both throw men forward in an effort get off the bottom of the group. If you won’t get up for the Belgium/England snorefest then don’t bother for this. Goals at both ends from poor defensive errors rather than ‘worldies’ in a game where you could barely name a player from either side.

Prediction: 1 – 2

 

$20 @ 11.12 = $222.40
