Brazil continued to impress as they cruised to the World cup 2010 quarter finals with a stunning 3-0 victory over a hardworking Chile team . Goals from Juan , Luis Fabiano and Robinho mean that Brazil will play Holland in Port Elizabeth on Friday afternoon in fascinating encounter that the Samba Stars are 11/10 to win in 90 minutes with Blue Square . Holland will be tough opponents however they have won every game so far in the 2010 World Cup and showed in yesterday's 2-1 victory over Slovakia that they can roll up their sleeves when required to dig out a result . So far all of the knockout games have gone the way of the odds on favourites and bookmakers are now concerned that the heavily backed Brazil will lift the World Cup Trophy . Almost all bookies make Brazil the new 5/2 favourite in outright betting with Holland virtually unchanged at 7/1 with William Hill despite their solid victory . Brazil certainly looked impressive against Chile and if they can beat Holland they would be strong favourites to overturn Uruguay or Ghana in a semi final match . William Hill are currently quoting odds of 7/2 on a Brazil v Argentina final and 9/2 for a Brazil v Spain final . Both look decent value at this stage .
