France Can Beat Belgium In Tonight’s Semi
There are 211 active countries in the FIFA world rankings and 193 members of the United Nations. The football body is more represented than the UN and the sport truly is global. There can be only one world champions every four years and now only four nations can win the 2018 World Cup and one of those is England. The country that invented the sport has never won the World Cup overseas and will probably never get a better chance of lifting the trophy for many years. As Robin Williams said in Dead Poets Society “seize the day young men” as this is your time. ENGLAND are 5/2 with Ladbrokes to win the World Cup and only France are a shorter price.
England’s semi-final against Croatia tomorrow night could attract the biggest audience in the history of British television. There are many more ways to receive news and information than in the past. The 1966 World Cup final will take some beating for viewing figures and its place in British sport. Tonight’s first semi-final brings together France and Belgium and England will play the winners or losers in the 3rd/4th place match on Saturday or the final the following day. Twelve of Belgium’s last 15 matches have produced more than three goals and FRANCE should score most tonight and win the match in 90 minutes (31/20 with Betfair).
The women’s singles at Wimbledon has reached the last 8 stage and not one of the top 10 seeds is still in the tournament. The draw is opening up for Serena Williams and the 36-year-old has won her four matches in straight sets. It’s traditional for the ladies’ champion to have the first dance at the Champion’s Ball with the men’s champion. Step up Rafael Nadal for a dance with the younger WILLIAMS sister who is 6/5 with William Hill to win the Wimbledon title for the eighth time.
Harry Angel will not be running in the July Cup at Newmarket on Saturday which means ante post wagers are losing bets. No firms are offering non-runner/no bet for the Group 1 contest at the HQ of Flat racing for which Blue Point is now the favourite. Pontefract stages a Listed Class 1 race over one mile at 3pm in which connections of Blue Point have a leading contender. Charlie Appleby and Godolphin can win the Pontefract race with PROMISING RUN, on offer at 11/4 with Coral.
