Holland v Denmark its really hard to see where the goals are going to come from for Denmark and even harder if Bendtner is out. Robben will be a big loss for the Dutch but with Sneijder, VDV and RVP they should easily have enough about them to break down the Danes. Holland to win for me and Holland -1.

Japan v Cameroon can't imagine this is going to be a classic. Japan played decent against England in a friendly pre comp but thats not saying much as England play Jack Charlton Italia 90 style HOOF the ball up to the big lad. Cameroon have dissapointed in recent years but may just have enough about them to edge this. Eto'o will also want to put up a decent display after the stick he has got from Roger Milla. Cameroon win.

Italy v Paraguay think we could be in for a shock here, well a shock going by the betting anyway. In my opinion the Italians look no great shakes and are a team who will struggle to create chances without playmaker Pirlo. There defence has seen better days too with Cannavaro past it imo and Zambrotta not far off him. Up front i also think they will struggle to score goals and i am not Gilardino or Iaquinta's biggest fans.
Paraguay on the other hand really impressed me in qualifing and are a more attacking unit than previous Paraguay teams. They are always solid at the back and have an arry of talent to pick from up front. I can see then causing the ageing Cannavaro all sorts of problems. Paragauy win for me
