World Cup Predictions: Lawro’s 4 Friday Qatar flutters with 8/1 fancy

It's time for Lawro to wrap up his group campaign and start thinking about the knockouts.


3pm: Ghana 0-1 Uruguay
3pm: South Korea 0-1 Portugal
7pm: Cameroon 0-2 Brazil
7pm: Serbia 0-1 Switzerland


3pm: Ghana v Uruguay

TV: BBC Two, RTE, BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport Website

Uruguay, when they took the shackles off against Portugal, they looked like a really good team so I’ll go for Uruguay to just win this 1-0. They have to win or they’re out and they’ve got some wily, old players. I think they’ll nick a win.

3pm: South Korea v Portugal

TV: BBC One, RTE, BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport Website

I’ll go 1-0 to Portugal in this one which will mean the end for South Korea. Portugal have good players, I don’t think they’re great defensively. If you get a run on Pepe it’s all over. They’re through and they’ve got players who can change the game, I’m just not sure about their defence in terms of going really deep.

7pm: Cameroon v Brazil

TV: ITV1, RTE, STV, ITVX and STV Player

I don’t see Cameroon beating Brazil, I think that would be a big ask. I think they might make changes but I’d expect Brazil to Win 2-0 and keep their impressive start rolling.

7pm: Serbia v Switzerland

TV: ITV4, RTE, ITVX and STV Player

I’m going to with Switzerland to win this because, generally in these competitions, Switzerland manage to get into the latter stages. I’ll give Switzerland a 1-0 Win. Serbia will be a tough opponent but the Swiss have been there and done it in these types of games.
