World Cup tips: Wales predicted to struggle by Paddy’s panel of pundits

Could we see a repeat of Wales' Euro 2016 heroics? Don't count on it...


Wales will be looking to cause a few waves in the desert this winter, but how far can they go?

Wonder no more as Paddy’s prestigious punting panel put their necks on the line and reveal when they think The Dragons will bow out of the World Cup.


Could it be another repeat of that historic Euro 2016 semi final? Spoiler alert; No.

But who knows? Paddy’s panel knows, that’s who. Let’s see what Phil ThompsonMark Lawrenson, our top football trader Jason Murphy or even the ever-optimistic Paddy Power think of Robert Page’s side.

Wales will fancy their chances of finishing ahead of Iran and USA in the group and I think they will. But I think their tournament will end at the LAST 16.


I’ve not got great hopes for Wales. They’re well drilled and have great assets in Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey but I think it’ll just be the GROUP STAGE for them.


I think they’ll get out of the group but that will be as far as they go, Gareth Bale needs to be super fit and Aaron Ramsey just keeps getting injured so it’s the LAST 16 for me.


A run to the quarter finals is possible for this Wales team. However, it’s most likely they exit at the GROUP STAGE after failing to score enough against Iran and USA, but let’s hope not!


They should get out of their group handily enough but I think the LAST 16 is as good as it will get for Wales.
