Cameroon to beat Mexico @ 13/5
The Indomitable Lions may have been embroiled in yet another dispute over bonuses recently, butthat shouldnt put you off backing them to see off a sorry Mexico team in their group opener.
El Tricolor laboured through qualifying, while recent results have been poor with defeats to Portugaland Bosnia in their last two games. They say to comment on the thing that interests you individually.This report may not interest absolutely everyone but it's appealing in my opinion:Couple thoseresults with a credible draw for Cameroon against Germany and a win over Moldova in their last twoand the African side are worth backing.
Ivory Coast to beat Japan @ 6/4
Its now or never for the Ivorians butan opening game against a defensively-frailJapan team represents the perfect start inwhat is otherwise a decidedly tricky groupcontaining Colombia and Greece.
Japan shipped three goals against Zambialast time out, as part of a run that has seenthem concede in eight of their last nine games. These two met in a friendly back in 2010 with theElephants triumphing and we expect a repeat.
Nigeria to beat Iran @ 21/20
Arguably the most reliable of the African teams backed, the Super Eagles will know that victory overIran could put them on course for the second round and only requiring a win against Bosnia toprogress.
Nigeria may have lost to Team USA last time out but the African Cup of Nations holders are wellversed in big game tournament football and should have enough to see off an Iran team with one win
from their last five.
Ghana to beat USA @ 8/5
Ghanas recent World Cup warm-up match results may not have been fantastic, but if theBlack Stars can play with the kind of freedom that saw them smash Egypt 6-1 in qualifying thenTeam USA could be in trouble.
Jurgen Klinsmanns inexperienced team have kept just one clean sheet from their last five,with Ghana representing something of a bogey team for the Americans, having beaten the US at theprevious two World Cups.
Algeria to beat Belgium @ 8/1
The outsiders of the five-fold selection, Algeria will nevertheless be desperate to cause an upsetagainst one of the biggest, and most importantly untested, dark horses for the competition.
On a run of four straight wins, Algerias hopes. Fascinating stuff I'm sure you will agree. Ofcourse, if you'd like to learn more to do with online betting, have a look at a few selected links listedbelow - and don't forget, be sure to make a comment and let us know what you think!
