After South Africa and Mexico set the tone in the opening match with 90 minutes of solid competition, the World Cup prepares for the first European and South American teams to hit the pitch.
It’s France and Uruguay, a battle of heated rivals.
Okay, so maybe not heated rivals, but knowing France, it could get ugly.
Even though soccer is one of the most team-oriented sports, both France and Uruguay have go-to-guys that need to show up for either side to win. Neither team has a superstar to lean on, so chemistry will need to be in full force.
Otherwise, we may have to wait until Saturday for the first win of the World Cup.
So who should you put your money on?
Plain and simple: Whoever has more of their top players on point.
Oh, and a handball might help too.
