Brian Laudrup failed to make much of an impression in their first match, but still appeals as the best bet for first goalscorer. South Africa looked moderate in going down 3-0 to the host nation last week and is is hard to see them making much impression against Denmark, who are fancied to take the runners-up berth in Group C.
France should overwhelm Saudi Arabia (maybe 3-0) in St Denis this evening. Comfortable winners of their first game, France might find that Saudi Arabia pose a few more problems but the host nation are expected to come on as a unit from that first match and should register another easy win. Dugarry looks a solid bet to be the first goalscorer.
Despite failing to beat Norway, Scotland are 8-13 with Ladbrokes to qualify for the knock-out stages.
Brazil were cut from 11-4 to 5-2 to win the tournament outright after their facile 3-0 success over Morocco while Ronaldo, who did us a favour by scoring the opening goal in that match, is now a top-priced 5-1 favourite from 11-2 with the Tote to win the Golden Boot Award for top goalscorer in the tournament.Reuse content
