Portugal V Mexico, Confederations cup

Semi final time and you would have been a brave man to bet against the 4 that got through doing just that. Clearly the best 4 sides in the comp and what will now have a very interesting final no matter the results in the semi’s.

Mexico are a very solid side. they don’t have the names of the other 3 but their domestic league is always under valued for the quality it contains. They will match ball retention and have some very good players.

However at 2.4 we think Portugal are great value. Ronaldo gives them the ability to finish off what they create and in big knock out games that is what you need. It’s the last comp when he will be at his absolute best and so we think he will want this one.

England U21 V Germany U 21

English football has had a good summer at the more junior levels. Winning the U 20 world cup was massive as it creates history which motivates players to try to do it again. It also sends players into senior tournaments in the future with a clear idea of how to win.

Tactically the Under 21’s play the same way as the under 20’s did and it is working.

They face a step up in class tonight though as Germany are a very solid side. It’s unlikely England will get too many chances so to win they have to be clinical.

We think at 3.1 with Bet365 they could well be just that though.

England have the face and physical strength to compete with Germany, if we score the chances we make we should win.
