France -1.5 @ 1.70
France -2.5 @ 2.80 The French were pretty ordinary and made Australia look better than what they are
Argentina -1.5 @ 2.00
Argentina - Iceland over 2.5 @ 1.85
Messi shit himself when he needed to step up
Croatia @ 1.80 Croatia - Nigeria over 2.5 @ 2.30
Croatia did what they had to do but had a couple of good chances to send it over. Never really troubled by Nigeria
Germany -2.5 @ 2.43
Like the Germans to step it up here, as they got a big scare the other night against the Swedes. Like them to respond like Uruguay did when they needed to play the way they are expected to
Sweden @ 3.35
Mexico to play it safe knowing they just need a point which will allow the Swedes to come at them. Not a game with many chances but the Swedes did show they can pull something out of their arse.
Germany, Switzerland & Brazil @ 3.04
Brazil - Serbia under 2.5 @ 2.16
Serbia know they cannot be open in this game otherwise they will get torn apart. Expect them to pretty physical and try to put the Brazilians off their game. Neymar will be the difference but doubt it is a high scoring game
Colombia @ 1.84
Love the way Colombia have played and pretty high on them, especially against Japan where they took it to them for most of the game with just 10 men. Lads have got big cajones Colombia - Senegal over 2.5 @ 2.04
Poland @ 2.85
Not keen on Japan as believe they have overachieved. Poland will look to win some pride with Lewandowski being the class edge over them Poland - Japan over 2.5 @ 2.23
Tunisia -1.5 @ 1.85
Tunisia -2.5 @ 3.30
Tunisia pretty competitive against Belgium and England. Panama were witches hats. Enough said
England @ 2.68
Pressure on Southgate not to make too many changes. Expect him to have a near full strength side.
From BBC: "Kevin de Bruyne, Thomas Meunier and Jan Vertonghen are a booking away from a ban and unlikely to play for Belgium. Striker Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out,Dries Mertens also has an ankle issue while captain Eden Hazard has been nursing a calf problem"
Now for the serious business. Expect to see the big teams now step it up even if they have not been that great in the qualifiers. They now know that one bad game and they are out, so they will be more focused than before. If you look at some of the previous winners, they ahve tended to start slow and work their way into form, so that they peak in the final. Hard to play at a very high level for 7 straight games. However Croatia, England and Belgium managed to rest their starters for the final group game, which will hold them in good stead for these games.
