We are now just 50 days away from the start of this summer’s World Cup in South Africa and boy am I getting excited.
32 teams will battle it out over the course of a month, all hoping to be the ones lifting that famous World Cup trophy at the end of it.
The 11th of June is when it all kicks-off, with the hosts, South Africa taking on Mexico in a game that will be watched by millions all round the world.
Spain are currently the favourites with the majority of bookmakers, however there are plenty of sides capable of going all the way.
I personally fancy England to do the business in South Africa and at around 13/2 with most bookies, I will certainly be having a bit of money on Capello’s men. I also feel that USA are way over-priced at 66/1 considering the fact, they beat several of the favourites for the competition in last summer’s Confederations Cup in South Africa.
In terms of the top goalscorer market. I will be having a few quid on Brazil’s Luis Fabiano at 12/1 and I also like the look of Carlos Tevez at 40/1.
