Sports Interaction has the USA at +100 for this must win game and Bob Bradley’s team look in great shape to beat Slovenia and put one foot in the second round of the greatest show in Soccer.

Tim Howard played the game of his life while hurt on Saturday and while England’s goalkeeper may have lent a helping hand for the USA’s goal, this team still showed the kind of heart and spirit required to make the second round. Slovenia did well to beat Algeria but that’s as good as it’s going to get for the outsiders.
This one is going to make US Soccer fans nervous but they shouldn’t be, I believe in the USA so back them to win big with Sports Interaction. England will look to make up for that disappointment against the USA on Saturday and Algeria is the perfect opponent for the Three Lions. Algeria looked hopeless against Slovenia and I expect England to exploit their weaknesses with style, coasting to victory.
This won’t be a game where the English attack explodes but it will do enough to get that all important win. I like England to win 2-0 where you can get them at +500 with Sports Interaction. This will be a weekend where the big guns come out to play. Italy will unleash the fury against New Zealand on Sunday.
The All Whites showed some spirit against Slovakia but this will be a whole other level for New Zealand. Italy needs to make a statement after a slow start and this Sunday that’s exactly what we’re going to see. Sports Interaction is offering +600 on a 3-0 win for Italy and with striker Alberto Gilardino ready to pounce I like them to unload on the All Whites.
Back Italy to win big with Sports Interaction. Tournament favorites Brazil made hard work of North Korea and I expect Ivory Coast to provide just as tough a challenge. This Brazil team is possibly the smartest and most patient in the World Cup and it will find a way to score but don’t expect too many goals.
After getting caught out at the back on Tuesday I like Brazil to keep a clean sheet and win this on 2-0 where you can bet on them at +700 with Sports Interaction.
