Arjen Robben is fit again after a hamstring injury has delayed his participation in World Cup 2010. It looks possible he could play for Netherlands against Cameroon in Capetown tomorrow evening.
Skybet offer odds of 12/5 for Robben to score at anytime during the game after he announced on Monday that he wanted to play in the final Group E game.
Team coach, Bert van Marwijk has said he will let Robben decide whether he can play and this could be the ideal opportunity for the Bayern Munich midfielder to get some match practice.
Netherlands were the first country to seal qualification to Stage 2, they did so without reproducing their free scoring form of the qualifiers. Betting odds of 9/1 are available with William Hill for Netherlands to win the World Cup.
Van Marwijk admits that his side have found it difficult against the very defensive opponents they’ve met so far.
Striker, Robin van Persie has yet to demonstrate his best form as he continues his comeback to top class football. He missed most of the Premier League season for Arsenal and will start tomorrow looking to rediscover his goal scoring touch.
His coach admits: “He (Van Persie) is conscious that he did not play at his best level against either Denmark or Japan. He is not happy but he is going to get better, I am sure of that."
For Cameroon the game is only a matter of pride, which has been lacking as the Indominatable Lions limp sadly out of World Cup 2010. Betfred, Canbet and Victor Chandler offer odds of 4/1 for Samuel Eto’o and his teammates to leave South Africa with a win.
