Rashford Must Start Against Tunisia
Before last night’s friendly against Costa Rica the bookmaker odds for the players to start the match against Tunisia suggested 11 names were set in stone. There will have to be some adjustments now because Marcus Rashford can’t be left out for England’s first match in the World Cup. Glenn Hoddle named him as the man of the match and he’s not a bad judge. All the pundits now believe Rashford starts against Tunisia.
The man on the street or in his favourite armchair could not have failed to be impressed. Rashford scored a brilliant goal and produced an excellent performance which Gareth Southgate cannot ignore. Harry Kane is a certainty to play up front and his partner must be RASHFORD who you can back at 150/1 with Ladbrokes to win the Golden Boot awarded to the leading scorer in the World Cup in Russia.
Rafael Nadal has played 86 matches in the French Open and won 84 but he is too short to win the 87th. The King of Clay meets Juan Martin Del Potro in the semi-finals today and the outsider could win the match. It’s a meeting between players from Spain and Argentina, two nations who have won the football World Cup and are genuine contenders this time. Not many players can get Nadal out of his comfort zone on clay but DEL POTRO has won five of their 14 matches on all surfaces so cannot be ignored at 5/1 with William Hill to beat him in Paris today.
There are eight meetings in Britain and Ireland today but only the Flat fixture at the Curragh offers more than £87,000 in prize money. In fact there is over two hundred grand in euro up for grabs at one of the most lucrative evening fixtures of the season. The highlight is the Group 3 Ballyogan Stakes over six furlongs at 7.45pm. On form and ratings ONE MASTER is the bet at 2/1 with Betfair.
