Spain will go into the 2010 World Cup full of confidence after tormenting Poland on Tuesday evening with goals from star striker’s David Villa and Fernando Torres amongst others…
Having won The European Championships in 2008 and qualified for this World Cup with a 100 per cent record the Spanish case for this World Cup was already very strong and they have remained very impressive in recent friendlies .
Yesterday’s return to action , and a goal for Fernando Torres is particuarly good news as the Liverpool front man had missed the end of the Premier League season through injury .
With Villa , Fabregas , Silva , Pedro and Alonso all scoring for Spain it is not a suprise to see that bookmakers generally have been forced to cut the odds on Spain winning the 2010 World Cup outright and the Spaniards are now best priced 4/1 although Victor Chandler and Betfred now offer only 7/2 .
Group Qualification as winners looks a certain bet for Spain and they would then face the runners up in Group G . However in current form , Spain would start strong favourites against any European team and it seems the main threat may come from Brazil or Argentina .
Spain are top priced 6/4 with Bet365 to win all three of their Group H games and Manager Vicente Del Bosque will be expecting nothing less .
The much awaited first game for Spain in the 2010 World Cup will be Wednesday June 16th against Switzerland in Durban . Expect some fireworks ! .
