It’s paid to follow Paddy’s football ambassador Phil Thompson during Euro 2020 and he sensationally landed a 25/1 punt as France drew 2-2 with Portugal in the final Group F round of games on Wednesday. It’s Portugal in his sights again here as they prepare to go to battle with Belgium in Seville.


Thommo’s managed to pull another 25/1 punt out of the hat for this game, but can he do the double? It’s a mouth-watering clash as two heavyweights go at it and Thommo’s well up for this one.

I really fancy goals in this one. I’m going for 3-2 to… you’re all wondering which way Thommo’s going here aren’t you? 3-2! Will it be Cristiano Ronaldo or Romelu Lukaku?

I’m going to go with Belgium to win 3-2. They’ve been my tip from the very start. They’ve got nine points from the first round and they’ve been really good and comfortable I have to say.

They’ve scored seven with only one against. There’s no other way to go. I just do fancy them, but this Portugal team with Ronaldo… the leading goal-scorer Ronaldo, at the moment.

He’s heading off Lukaku as the leading goal scorer – Ronaldo’s been special. But they’ve conceded six goals, Portugal. They’ve also scored seven so I am going for a goal-fest.

And I’m backing both Romelu Lukaku to Score Anytime and Cristiano Ronaldo to Score Anytime.
