World Cup 2010.....

Recommended Posts

Flicked through the odds on the 2010 World cup today and was shocked at some of the numbers....

Portugal 20/1

Italy 12/1

England 6/1

Ghana 80/1

Czech Rep 1000/1

I'm personally going for the on form African Nation Ghana to take it this year.

Anyone else?

Ghana lost to Benin today in a qualifier.

By the way some of those odds are long as some of the teams havent qualified yet and have to get through the playoffs. Their prices will come down once they have booked their place.

Not a bad tinkle at 80-1, I chose them over the Ivory Coast, but those mother fuckers are looking sharp as well.

hmmmm.

i'm a long time ghana fan (since back in the day when they had pretty shirts instead of boring real madrid wannabe kits)...

ancestral allegiance however may induce me to put a tenner on Slovakia before we watch a spain/holland final which, of course, holland will lose on pks.

Well Turkey can't qualify and neither can Sweden realistically as Portugal have to beat some no marks to finish 2nd in their group. Think Czechs are struggling too! In fact half of those teams won;t even ben in SA. All will be revealed after Wednesday night.

Russia would be worth an each way punt if they get through their playoff (put it on now to get the best price). They have some great players and looked very good up to the Spain game in Euro 2008

russia play some really attractive, attacking football too. *if* they get through.

I think its an each way personally, but a good each way.

Think they can deal with the blazing African summer heat though?

I'm not sure....but seeing as it's winter in SA when the WC is on they won't need to.

Interesting fact that I never knew...

"Never has a European team won the World Cup outside of Europe. This is difficult, not only for England but for all European teams."

knew that already and brazil in 1958 was the only non-european country to win the world cup in europe !!!
