Cameroon vs. Denmark
Saturday World Cup Match Betting Analysis
World Cup football is off and in full effect. Group play is going well for some and not so well for others. It isnt going well for Cameroon or Denmark. Both teams started the World Cup with losses. Neither team scored even a single goal. Cameroon fell to Japan and Denmark lost to Netherlands. Both nations desperately require a win. The team that loses this Game will find their World Cup hopes squashed. This match consists of two Group E teams, Cameroon and Denmark. The other Group E teams are Japan and Netherlands.
Things didnt go as expected for Cameroon in their first Game of the World Cup. They fully expected to thrash Japan, but werent able to do it. Japan is one of the lowest rated teams in the World Cup. The final score of the Game was 1-0 in favor of the Japanese. Cameroon made a late rally and had a shot bounce off the goal post. The team says the lost the fight with Japan, but the battle for the World Cup isnt over. They will have to quickly recover in order to stay alive.
Cameroon has one of the best strikers in the entire world, but the coach of the team didnt utilize him properly. He had him playing to the right. Samuel Etoo is the best striker in the history of Cameroon football. It will be up to him to try and get points on the board. He is more than capable of doing it. Etoo is the captain of Cameroons football team. If he plays well then his team will rally behind him and play well also.
Denmark put up quite a fight to lose to one of the World Cup favorites in Holland. The Danish were able to keep the Game scoreless until half time, but gave up two goals in unlucky fashion. They boast solid defensive skills. All in all, the Denmark team can take a bit of confidence away from their opening Game. Cameroon should be an easier assignment for them.
Defender LArs Jacobson is an asset for the Denmark team. He has 33 caps in his career. He plays English Premier League for the Blackburn Rovers when not playing for Denmark in the World Cup. JonTomasson is also a valuable gem for the Denmark team. He was Player of the Year in Denmark in 2002 and 2004. He has 110 caps to his credit. He has played for the Italian Club AC Milan in the past.
Coach Paul Le Guen is catching a lot of bad press for the way he has handled Cameroons team. First he doesnt play Etoo, one of the Cameroons best strikers, in his natural position. He didnt substitute a player until 65 minutes into the Game.
Le Guen decided to drop strong defender Alex Strong. He wouldve helped the Cameroonians immensely. Stephane Mbia wasnt playing his natural position either and he was the one that the Japanese scored on. Le Guen will have to answer for his decisions if Cameroon doesnt rebound and win this Game against Denmark.
When it comes to soccer betting you have to go with the more talented team and that team in this match is Denmark. They showed much better unity and solidarity in their Game against Holland then Cameroon did against Japan. Denmark is the favorite, but you can get a solid price of +185 with 5dimes.com Cameroon is a nice team, but they looked disinterested against Japan and they dont appear as motived as Denmark to win this Game. Bet on Denmark and enjoy a great soccer Game!
