In a slow start to the Bwin Blogger’s League, RoM’s first bet didn’t really go to plan as Fred failed to get on the scoresheet. We all know however this is a marathon not a sprint, so the minor setback won’t be costly.

Friday and Saturday represent a busy day for Manchester United strikers with the four senior members all taking part. Javier Hernandez and Mexico face off against Cameroon, whilst the Robin van Persie led Holland take on reigning champions Spain on the friday. With that in mind, we believe the best way to succeed is to back the club’s players Javier Hernandez @ 6/1 for first goalscorer seems too good to turn down, similarly with Robin van Persie @ 15/2.

On Saturday, England kick off their World Cup hopes in Manaus against Italy. With Welbeck seemingly fit to play, the England side could feature three United players. A lot of pressure is on the back of Wayne Rooney given his previous lack of productivity in his two previous campaigns. Whilst much of the attention has been on how England can stop Andrea Pirlo, the focus will certainly be on the Juventus man but it may be teammate and fellow midfielder Claudio Marchisio that might steal the show given the lack of focus on him, who @ 14/1 for the Man of the Match award seems good value as an outsider.
