Analysis & Previews

Back Germany @ 8/1  to win the World Cup.....2/5 to win Group A...... bet with BLUESQUARE

Back Costa Rica @ 500/1  to win the World Cup.....10/1 to win Group A...... bet with BLUESQUARE

Germany will kick-start the much long waited world's greatest sporting event on home soil, the 18th edition of the World Cup finals against Costa Rica on Friday, as well as bringing an end to a 32-year tradition spanning eight FIFA World Cups™ of the party being launched by the reigning world champions. German coach Jurgen Klinsmann has blended in a host of youngsters, although his squad for this summer's tournament contains ten veterans of the 2002 squad. Michael Ballack and Miroslav Klose remain key figures, while Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann pip Oliver Kahn for the No.1 jersey. The heart beat of the German team midfielder Michael Ballack who has been struggling with a calf strain sustained in a recent friendly is ruled out of their World Cup opening match.

Costa Rica have question mark over deputy goalkeeper Mesen, the stand-in for injured first-choice keeper Jose Francisco Porras in their warm-up games, who has picked up a calf strain. At the moment only third-choice shot-stopper Wardy Alfaro has a clean bill of health. Costa Rica finished behind USA and Mexico to reach their third World Cup, having also appeared in 1990 and 2002.


This is a World Cup opener, the pressure with be on the hosts, Germany. Costa Rica play a cautious 3-5-2 formation in a bid to stifle Germany's attack and avoid a heavy defeat. Anything other than a defeat for the Costa Ricans will be a bonus. The Germans are without their midfield kingpin M.Ballack for this match and on a + 1 3/4 ball handicap the visitors are worthy of a bet.
