The winner of Group A plays the second placed team in Group B. Therefore, it is likely that Brazil will play the Netherlands in the first game after the Group Phase. Robben is a poor choice for the Golden Ball because he might not be around long enough to make an impression.I'm rooting for Netherlands but I'm making a few small team bets to enhance watching. Reckon i'll put small bets on Italy at 25, France at 22, Uruguay at 28 and Netherlands at 33. Probably bad value but will be a lot of fun.
Will chuck a cheeky bet on Robben for golden ball at 40/1 as well. Suggest the same for anyone who wants to become richer.
Whoever you bet on should belong to a team who has an easier passage to the Quarter Finals.
