World Cup quarter finals

| 17.05.2010

Three weeks after the World Cup opening ceremony in Johannesburg, the “Windy City” of Port Elizabeth will host the first of four World Cup quarter finals at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

By that time, 32 teams will have been cut down to the final eight, and the World Cup quarter finals betting will be hotting up on Ladbrokes. Should results go as expected, the residents of Port Elizabeth could well be treated to a battle between Holland and Brazil, while later in the day the capital city could well be witnessing England v France, promising a cracking line-up to bet on 2010 World Cup quarter finals.

The 2010 World Cup quarter finals betting looks even tastier given the following day’s likely line-up, with Argentina, Germany, Italy and Spain the expected quarter-finalists in Cape Town and Johannesburg – barring any tournament shocks of course.

It’s not difficult to see why punters might fancy a World Cup quarter finals bet, given the tantalising encounter witnessed a this stage in 2006, when France pipped Brazil, Germany knocked out Argentina on penalties and England crashed out to Portugal in the same manner, and there’s nothing to say that World Cup 2010 quarter finals betting won’t be just as exciting this time round.

Those looking for a shock need look no further than in 2002, when, after England crashed out to an infamous Ronaldinho goal and Germany squeezed past USA, South Korea dispatched Spain on penalties, earning themselves a first-ever spot in the semi-finals, and once again proving just how exciting it could be this year in 2010 Fifa World Cup quarter finals betting.

As ever, Ladbrokes will be the place to come for the Fifa World Cup quarter finals betting odds as soon as the teams are known.
