Heading into the quarterfinal round of the World Cup betting action there are plenty of big names remaining in the biggest soccer betting tournament in the world. There’s Brazil, Netherlands, Argentina, Spain …but Uruguay? Surprisingly enough, Uruguay looks to be most certain of all of these teams, save perhaps Spain to book a spot in the World Cup odds action semifinals.
It’s pretty a pretty impressive achievement for this South American afterthought which is almost always overshadowed by its larger neighbors and World Cup betting stalwarts Brazil, Argentina and even Paraguay. And as if that weren’t injury enough the World Cup odds makers all picked another South American team, Chile, to far outshine the Uruguayans as well in the World Cup betting action.
But three weeks in the 2010 World Cup Betting event in South Africa Uruguay remains in the contest. And this team is doing much more than just surviving against its World Cup betting competition.
Uruguay first sprang onto the World Cup betting radar by winning Group A which boasted such competition as France and Mexico. It then took grabbed even more attention by knocking off South Korea in the World Cup betting Round of 16 betting action 2-1. And now, thanks to a relatively friendly draw the team looks well poised not only to play in a World Cup betting quarterfinal but to also advance to the semifinals.
Led by a very solid core of players like international soccer betting superstar Diego Forlan this side has not been spectacular but its been efficient and more importantly, mistake free. We’ve seen much more talented squad already booted from the World Cup betting action because of sloppy play and too many mistakes. But that hasn’t been a problem so far for the Uruguayan side in the World Cup betting competition.
It seems like this team has put the ball in the net on almost every scoring opportunity its had so far in the tournament. And if can get even a few good looks at the goal versus Ghana in its World Cup betting quarterfinal matchup that should be enough to get through to the semifinals. Uruguay plays strong enough on defense to win with only 1 or 2 goal lead.
Unfortunately, its reward for winning will be World Cup betting match with either Holland or Brazil.
