The United States are an interesting proposition at 15/8 () though. After coming the groups in a slightly haphazard fashion, they have looked a much better side in the knockout stages and can’t be discounted. Totesport’s 11/10 about a USA win in the draw no bet market looks a good place to start, as does the even money offered by Paddy Power for the United States to lift the trophy.
Two Premiership strikers go head to head in this encounter; Javier Hernandez, the tournament’s leading scorer, and Clint Dempsey. Both are in great form and Betfred’s 15/2 on Dempsey grabbing the first goal is tempting while Hernandez is 13/2 (Sportingbet) to open proceedings for Mexico. Stan James are going 5/6 about both teams to score in an exciting encounter.
