World Cup scorer boosts! Aguero, Shiqiri and Giroud all beefed up

| 15.06.2014

The World Cup is truly in full flow with goals flying in left-right-and-centre and high quality strikes at that. So ahead of Sunday’s Group E and Group F encounters, make sure you don’t miss more fantastic goalscorer price hikes from Ladbrokes.

Xherdan Shaqiri was 8/1 Now 10/1 to score first v Ecuador

Bayern Munich’s powerful winger-come-forward may have been used a little sparingly by the Bundesliga champions this season, but there’s no danger of that for his native Switzerland.

Shaqiri, thought to be a target for Liverpool, still scored six goals in 18 league appearances for Bayern this season and at just 22, has already bagged nine Swiss goals in 33 caps.

Olivier Giroud was 4/1 Now 9/2 to score first v Honduras

The leader of Arsenal’s line needs little introduction after finishing another campaign as the Gunners’ top scorer – where Giroud proved he’s the man to back for an opener, netting first on eight occasions.

Les Bleus’ strapping striker has notched 8 times in 30 appearances and crucially has hit a vein of form for his country ahead of the World Cup, hitting three goals in as many games.

Sergio Aguero was 4/1 Now 9/2 to score first v Bosnia

If the man they call Kun Aguero in his homeland had stayed fit for Manchester City this season then goodness knows how many goals he would have plundered?

As it was, 28 in all competitions from only 34 appearances is an astonishing return for a striker feared by defenders throughout the world, especially Bosnia’s.

Argentina’s first opponents of the World Cup couldn’t prevent City’s ice-cool number 10 from scoring both goals in a 2-0 defeat to them in a friendly back in November.
