After the first round of betting, RoM sits in a respectable 4th position in the league but we need your help to climb higher up the table, unlike Arsene Wenger we don’t consider 4th a trophy. So let us know your best bets for the coming days.
England’s opener against Italy brought around a lot of positives going forward, raised questions about the defence and doubts emerged with regards to the midfield. Wayne Rooney once against attracts the spotlight for his additional training sessions and rather inconsistent performance out wide in the 2-1 loss. The big decision facing England is whether to accommodate Wayne Rooney in perhaps a more favourable position for himself, the number 10 role, keeping out wide or dropping him altogether. It somewhat feels like Rooney is being used as an early scapegoat as he wasn’t by any means the worst player on the pitch. Uruguay are boosted by the return of Luis Suarez and perhaps a blessing in disguise that Diego Lugano is absent, his lack of speed would have undoubtedly been exposed by the express pace within England’s attacking quartet.
In their first game, Uruguay looked a shadow of the team that won the Copa America and reached the Semi-Finals of the last World Cup, defensive frailties were highlighted as the minnows of the group, Costa Rica exploded into life following Cavani’s penalty winning 3-1. With concerns over both team’s defences, goals seem like the safe option to back. We’ve gone for Over 2.5 goals @ evens, along with a final score of 2-2 @ 12/1. Let’s hope this can propel RoM to the top of the table.
