Brazil completed their 2010 World Cup preparation today with a 5-1 hammering of Tanzania in Dar-Es-Salaam and most bookmakers have reacted by shortening the odds on Brazil to win outright in South Africa .
Brazil have been world champions on five seperate occasions and Head Coach Dunga will be pleased with his side’s form as ex Man City star Robinho and Ramires both notched twice in today’s predictablely one sided match .
Brazil are now top priced 9/2 with most bookmakers including Bet365 and are rivalling Spain as 2010 tournament favourites .
Elsewhere today England beat local side Platinum Stars 3-0 but failed to impress many observers . The odds on England to lift the trophy have continued to drift in recent weeks as they have laboured through their warm up games and crucially lost captain Rio Ferdinand to a knee ligament injury . England are now available at 8/1 with both Victor Chandler and William Hill .
