Paddy Power ambassador Phil Thompson is confident of Wales having a good World Cup but they face a tough test to kick things off against USA. It has the potential to be a proxy knockout game with England expected to top the group so it’s massive for both sides involved.

The good news for Wales fans is that Thommo’s throwing his weight behind The Dragons and he’s been in fine fettle on the flutter front domestically so far this season. Will is translate onto the international stage? Let’s find out.

I’m expecting England to top this group and I’m expecting Wales to come second. This is one of those games that Wales will look at and they’ll think, ‘USA have got a decent side’. But looking at Wales, they’ll have great backing, they will be up for it.

I do expect Both Teams To Score in this, I really do. I don’t think either of them are great defensively but I think Wales will just about win this 2-1.

I expect Gareth Bale to play at least an hour. He’s not played many games out there in the States and you know with these things, because he’s playing out there, he’s going to be up for it. I would imagine that Gareth Bale will Score Anytime.
