GoalsMeanMore with 888sport during World Cup 2014!

Goals: those beautiful things that win football matches and make dreams come true. They mean everything.

This summer in Brazil, 888sport is giving away a £5 Free Bet EVERY TIME the team of your choice scores in the tournament.  It’s simple: nominate the team you reckon will consistently bang them in and watch the Free Bets roll in. So if the team of your choice scores three in one match, you get a £15 Free Bet!

 

And don’t worry: if your team gets knocked out, you’ll automatically be switched to the nation that eliminated your choice or, if you don’t make it past the group stages, your new team will automatically become the winner of the group! Before nominating your team, though, you may wish to pour over the stats to give yourself the best chance of winning big!

In World Cup history, the team that leads the scoring charts is, unsurprisingly, the host nation, Brazil, with 210 goals.

The Samba Boys have had in their ranks some of the greatest forwards in history including Ronaldo, Eusebio and Pele, and look to have found another in Barcelona striker Neymar.

As Brazil’s World Cup posterboy, the skilful hitman will be expected to fire the goals that deliver the host nation its sixth World Cup trophy – it would take a brave man to bet against him.

And then there’s deadly rival Argentina, who have travelled to Brazil with perhaps the most feared forward line in the tournament.

Leo Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero have the capacity to strike fear into any defence, and will be licking their lips at the prospect of facing Iran in the opening stages.

What about Spain, the defending champions, who have a vast array of attackers in perhaps one of the most creative sides in World Cup history?

Or how about a Ronaldo-led Portugal, a Bemzema-inspired France or Klose-fired Germany? All that without even mentioning England, who, all of a sudden, look blessed with a frontline of rare verve.

Daniel Sturridge fired 24 goals for Liverpool in the season just gone, while everyone knows Wayne Rooney’s quality – will he finally fire on the biggest stage of all?

With so much firepower on display, this could be the most exciting World Cup ever. And with 888sport’s GoalsMeanMore promo, it could also be the most profitable for punters - so, go on, nominate your team today and watch the Free Bets roll in!

Here’s how it works:

  • Choose – Nominate a team of your choice for the GoalsMeanMore promotion
  • Bet – Place a pre-match bet of at least £5 at odds of 1/2 (1.5) or more on any market for a match involving your nominated team
  • Get – We’ll give you a £5 Free Bet for every goal your nominated team scores during the match. So if they score three, you get a £15 Free Bets!
