WORLD CUP GROUPS C and D

GROUPS C and D

16th June 2018

Ronaldo may have grabbed the headlines with his hat-trick against Spain on Friday, but it is another striker playing his trade in Spain who might usurp him come the end.

Antoinne Griezmann pledged his future to Atletico earlier in the week and the French star may put to bed a run of recent poor group games for Les Blue.

Australia rely on some journeymen players and former Chelsea man Tim Cahill is still leading their line at 38 - he is likley to come on but 50 plus goals in 100 games is as good a strike rate as any one playing international football.

France are 2/7 shots and there is better value in taking them to win the Group you would think - but they are notoriously slow starters and Denmark - who have reached the knock-outs in 3 of the last four tournaments look better value.

Peru rely too much on star striker Paulo Guerrero who is back in the side after overcoming a drugs ban. If Denmark beat Peru - they will fancy their chnaces of beating Australia and a draw with France could see them sneak top spot.

Argentina are hard to oppose in Group D.
