Longshots

Post by Argonheart_Po » Sat May 26, 2018 7:57 am

For a semi final place or better?

In 2002 I won a small fortune on South Korea reaching the semi-finals. It was something like 80/1.

Any longshots worth a punt?

That was the WC when Sukor won the Golden Boot for being the top scorer in the tournament, yes they had a great team.
