Now that the FIFA World Cup has begun, a fun way to add to the enjoyment of the matches is to have a bet on the outcome of the coming games.
While there are many ways of betting, using cryptocurrencies is an increasingly popular method, especially as more online gaming platforms are beginning to include crypto in their list of accepted methods of payment.
While the soccer competition has just started, the betting options are immense for players. Let’s review the second day of the tournament and try to identify which teams have the most chances to pass the second round.
All about the second day of the competition in Qatar
England vs Iran
While most would have backed England to beat Iran, would they have guessed that Gareth Southgate’s team would score six goals?
The only other time that England scored six goals in a World Cup match was four years ago in Russia when Panama were their victims.
The fact that Harry Kane did not feature among England’s scorers is also remarkable. Instead, Bukayo Saka became the youngest man since Franz Beckenbauer in 1966 to score two goals in a World Cup final match.
It also made both him and Jude Bellingham the first players 21 or under, to score in a World Cup match for England.
Netherlands vs Senegal
After Ecuador had beaten the hosts Qatar in the opening game of the soccer World Cup, the other game in Group A saw the Netherlands beat Senegal by 2 – 0, both goals coming late in the match.
The blame for both of them can be partly laid at the door of Senegal keeper Édouard Mendy, who was beaten in the air by Cody Gakpo for the first goal and could only push a shot from Memphis Depay to Davy Klaasen for the second.
All is not lost for Senegal. Given how poor a side Qatar proved to be, the West Africans will be confident of beating them, and, if they can also defeat Ecuador, they will qualify for the knock-out stages along with the Netherlands.
Wales vs USA
Meanwhile US and Welsh fans will have conflicting emotions after their 1 – 1 draw. Those of an American persuasion will believe that they should have won the match after a dominant first-half performance with only a goal by Timothy Weah (excellently set-up by Christian Pulisic).
However, those who were supporting the team in red will be proud of the way that their side fought back, even if there was no need for Walker Zimmerman to concede the penalty which Gareth Bale then converted.
It means that England lead the group, with the US and Welsh teams tied on a point each, and with Iran already looking as if their FIFA World Cup is already over for another four years.
