If I ruled the World

first_imgBrazil v EnglandFriendlyTIME: 8pmTV: ITV35 points profit !!Well that worked out well for the column yesterday !!Derby winner RULER OF THE WORLD (WON 7/1) gave us a 35 point profit on the day to recommended stakes of 4 points each way and the weekly profit now stands at 63 points.YIKES !!The debate about the Derby will continue for weeks but I think we saw a worthy winner (although I’m a little biased !).From Epsom to Rio for tonight’s friendly between Brazil and England.There’s been more said about the shambolic state of the ground than the actual match and there was plenty of building work going on in the 24 hours before the match kick off.The Brazilian football association insist the stadium will be ready for tonight’s game.Yet on Saturday evening, it was clear that plenty of work was still to be done. Hundreds of builders wearing hard hats were inside the grounds of the system banging pieces of wood together and tidying up stray wires.One of the toilets inside the stadium flooded, spilling water out onto the floor, while outside the stadium a queue of hundreds of workers snaked around a chaotic makeshift ticket centre.Good job Brazil don’t have any major sporting events coming up in the next few years isn’t it.I can’t get as enthusiastic about this match as I should do. Come on… it’s BRAZIL v ENGLAND for goodness sake man.Perhaps it’s just burn out from too much football, perhaps it’s because it’s just a friendly or perhaps both sides are not what they once were.Anyway it’s certainly not a match to throw away too many of our hard-earned points on and I’ll risk a few points on the draw with Star Sports.England don’t have such a bad record against the Samba Boys.STAR FORECAST(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)3 points DRAW Brazil v England(+35 points Saturday, +63 points this week)Agree OR disagree?
