Nowadays, online betting is one of the most popular ways to bet to your favorite soccer teams all around the world. You can either enter your betting picks before the start of a match (or even more) or enjoy the hidden "secrets" of live betting, where you can place your bets as you watch your preferred fixture.

This is an absolutely great way to bet as you have an opinion about the match and how both teams are performing. Betting is actually an investment and as such should be regarded, as it has nothing to do with other forms of gambling. Online betting is famous in all European countries. Moreover, if you are an uk resident, uk online betting is a classic habbit for all uk residents.

There are many bookmakers to try your luck on the Web, but William Hill is the best and most serious in the market. So why don't you start placing your bets today? Don't forget that World Cup is only a few months away, so building your bankroll till then is not a bad idea.


Can Lionel Messi silence any remaining doubters at World Cup 2014?

Written by Sebastien on Wednesday, 03 April 2013 11:54. Posted in World Cup Blog

To all but the most cynical of eyes, Lionel Messi has clearly proved himself to be not only the best footballer of his generation, but one who stands comparison to any from yesteryear. However, there is one stick that those few remaining doubters regularly use to beat him with: his failure to lead Argentina to World Cup glory.

It is an injudicious argument when you consider that Messi was little more than a young fringe player during his first World Cup, in 2006, and was then hamstrung during South Africa 2010 World Cup by a woefully unbalanced side whose defensive failings were made patently clear by Germany in the last eight.


Nigeria’s Keshi Leads The Way For African Coaches

Stephen Keshi stands alone among the coaches who have led Nigeria to tournament success. Otto Glória of Brazil coached them to the 1980 Africa Cup of Nations; Clemens Westerhof of the Netherlands led them to the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations; and another Dutchman, Jo Bonfrere, oversaw their 1996 Olympic Gold Medal success. In winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Keshi became the first Nigerian to lead the country to glory.

Keshi’s past paints a picture of how African coaches have historically been treated within their own continent, where the possibility of being replaced by a foreign coach, heralded or not, has always loomed. He led Togo to a surprise qualification for the 2006 World Cup, but was replaced by the German coach Otto Pfister for the tournament itself after leading Togo to a group stage elimination from the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations.

Is It Time To Merge The Confederations of Asia and Oceania?

This past weekend, New Zealand moved to within a two-legged playoff of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup with a 2-1 victory away to New Caledonia, their closest rivals in the Oceania Football Confederation’s qualification process. The victory continued their 100% record in the final group stage, with 15 goals scored and just two conceded over five matches.

The All Whites now face a long wait until November, when they will take part in a playoff with the fourth placed team from the CONCACAF region (North and Central America) to determine whether or not they will qualify for Brazil 2014.

The ease with which New Zealand have reached this stage - as they did with similar comfort ahead of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa - has again raised questions as to the validity of the Oceania confederation running their own qualification process, separate from that of their closest geographical neighbours, Asia.
