POLAND scoring 30 seconds too late for Jordan so he goes into minus figures for the month but has plenty of time to get it back.
He says: “I'm only about £4 down so no real drama. In the early hours of the morning it's the first Copa America semi-final where hosts USA face a tough task against Argentina.
“Lionel Messi started his first game in the competition against Venezuela and I’m pretty sure he will start tonight with Angel di Maria also pushing for a start after missing the last two games with an injury.
“The USA will be without Jermaine Jones, Alejandro Bedoya and Bobby Wood. Jones is a key man in the midfield and you could compare him to Eric Dier for England, while Bedoya and Wood offer more attacking options and will miss out due to yellow card accumulations.
“Argentina are the clear favourites here but are quite short. Obviously not a cert but the good thing here is if Messi doesn’t start the bet will be voided. I think another bet that has good value is Gyasi Zardes for he USA to have one shot on target. Just one which you can get at evens with 888Sport.”
Messi to score (22-23, 888sport) – 2.3pts
Zardes over 0.5 shots on target (1-1, 888sport) – 2pts
