Friday 7pm: Netherlands v Argentina

I can remember that 1978 World Cup final between these two, Mario Kempes with his long flowing locks… what a team they were. It was wonderful for Argentina on home soil and all the ticker tape, I can still see it all fluttering down!

It was absolutely wonderful but will this game be the same? Probably. I’m going for an Argentina Win in this. As good as The Netherlands have been they’ve not had to push the boat out too much in too many games have they?

Senegal, Qatar, Ecuador and then the USA in the round of 16. I think, coming up against Argentina, they will meet their match and I fancy Argentina to Win. I know they lost that first game against Saudi Arabia but things like that just happen sometimes.


Teams get warmed up and I think Argentina will Win this. I think there will be plenty of goals, I’m going 3-1 to Argentina so I think Both Teams will Score. I’m going for Lionel Messi, I tipped him for the golden boot, so I’ll stick with him.

I know it won’t be the biggest price but it’s Messi to Score Anytime.
