After two days cold turkey, it is time for the quarter-finals to get under way. After 18 days of at least two matches a day, no doubt the two-day break came as a bit of a shock (we no it did to us).
We have established that grumpy Scottish people and grunting women just don’t hold quite the same sporting interest.
As much as we are looking forward to Uruguay v Ghana, there is no doubt that the plum tie of the day is Holland v Brazil.
The prospect could hardly be more mouthwatering, but if you want to add a bit more personal involvement in the match you can stick a £20 free bet on the match and get your money back whatever happens.
