AT least I had a reason to back against England – but what about all you Three Lions on your shirt wearers.
Gareth Southgate's men blew away tens of thousands of coupons with a thrilling 3-2 win in Spain.
Not many if any saw that coming and it helped beat my 1pt Top Treble. Well done to all the winners on the night including HullShaker with his England bookings and his penalty bet should have landed but Jordan Pickford got away with one.
The latest round of Nations League matches finish on Tuesday night with games including France v Germany and Ireland v Wales. There are also real friendlies such as Brazil v Argentina in Jeddah and Belgium v Holland.
I'm not willing to stake much on these games so it's a 1pt treble like yesterday. Start with France to score 2+ in their Nations League clash at home to a German side that looks out of sorts and was badly beaten 3-0 by Holland last week.
The Germans have kept just one clean sheet in 11 but France's 2-2 draw with Iceland from 2-0 last week was a worry and it wasn't until the introduction of Kylian Mbappe they looked a force. France should win but to score 2+ could be the safer bet.
An alternative to this is over 2.5 match goals and that's where I'm going with the Belgium v Holland friendly – a match between two high-scoring sides although it might be worth checking line-ups before committing to this.
Finally back a strong looking Brazil against Argentina in their glamour friendly. Neymar, Jesus, Coutinho and Co look in the mood and as always an Argentina side without Lionel Messi is a less dangerous one. Lionel Sebastian Scaloni is likely to focus on defence so it could be a low scorer.
