France Can Win The World Cup
Today’s World Cup final brings together a nation that has never won the trophy and opponents that have only been world champions at home. Croatia is a relatively new country and France won their own World Cup in 1998. If they do prevail Didier Deschamps will become just the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a manager. In a strange kind of way England supporters may be hoping Croatia oblige as they were close to beating that side in the last round. However, FRANCE have a better all round team and more players that can make a difference so the favourites are the bet to win the final in 90 minutes and that outcome is 10/11 with Ladbrokes.
Like Croatia Serbia was formed as the nation when Yugoslavia spilt in 1989. Serbia did not progress from the group stages in the World Cup but they can boast one of the best tennis players ever as one of their own. Novak Djokovic has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles and he plays in the Wimbledon final today against Kevin Anderson of South Africa. Anderson was emotionally and physically drained after his five sets semi-final win against John Isner that lasted more than six hours. His opponent came through his own emotional test against Rafael Nadal yesterday but the bet is still DJOKOVIC 3-0 at 13/10 with William Hill.
There are three summer jumps meetings in Britain today and they race over jumps at Sligo in Ireland. The richest card is at Killarney on the Flat and the most lucrative race is the fillies’ and mares contest over one mile (3.30pm). Seven horses are quoted at single figure odds and all the 11 runners are within a ratings range of six pounds. There are three joint top rated but PETTICOAT is the most progressive and the horse can be backed at 5/2 with bet365 to win this race.
