Plucky old England went out at the semi-final stage yet again but gave a good account of themselves against the USA to bring in our both teams to score bet. It would be easy to criticise the missed penalty but as most of us won’t ever find ourselves in that kind of situation it seems a bit harsh to judge. The USA are through and will face either Sweden or Holland in the World Cup Final.
According to the bookmakers whichever side goes through will just be there to make up the numbers as the USA are 4/1 on to life the trophy. After yesterday’s performance that’s hard to argue with. Holland have been decent and Sweden put out the Germans but getting the better of the USA may well prove a more difficult proposition.
Today we’re going for more of the same by backing both teams to score again. Holland have scored in every game of the tournament and should continue that record against Sweden who allowed Thailand to score their only goal of the tournament. Based purely on the numbers Holland appear to be good defensively but what we’ve seen with our own eyes contradicts that slightly. Nobody had scored against the Germans before the quarter-final so Sweden getting two to knock them out is worthy of respect. We think they’ll get on the scoresheet today.
