THE big game today is Belgium v Ireland and like me Greg is siding with the Belgians.
I’ve made the call but I’m not 100 per cent confident and I see from Greg’s write-up he also has doubts so make up your own mind.
Belgium v Republic Ireland (2pm)
For the players they havecBelguim should be cruising matches but sadly for them they just don’t seem to click like they should. Italy were outstanding in the first game but this will be easier and with three points a must it’s hard to ignore the 10-11 being offered for the Belguim win.
For me it’s one of these games where if Belguim win you say to yourself, “Belgium, No.2 ranked country in the world, full of great players, 10-11 to beat Ireland, what a bet.” Ireland will be organised but I’m putting a bit of faith into this Belguim side to put on a performance and get the three points.
