With the World Cup mere hours away from kick off, the 32 nations taking part in the summer festivities are hard at work on the training ground to ensure they’re in supreme form by the time they take the pitch.
We’ve sent our moles out to conspicuously position themselves in the bleachers, with the aim of returning with as much training ground gold on film as they can possibly deliver.
It’s fair to say that their first reconnaissance mission has been fruitful too:
Lloris looking impenetrable for France
We don’t give Honduras much chance of netting against France after seeing the form Hugo Lloris is in. The double save he makes halfway through is particularly tasty and the Spurs man is 8/13 to bag a clean sheet in Les Blues’ opener.
Neymar’s perfect hat trick
Even with a tea-cosy on his head, the tournament’s poster boy is pretty good. Croatia fans may want to look away from the below clip, while Brazil supporters are able to back the Barcelona man at 25/1 to repeat his training-triple.
Suarez has the ball at his feet
No one from Uruguay really batted an eyelid when star striker Luis Suarez copped a blow to the knee before landing in Brazil. Their serenity was justified as the below Vine shows the Liverpool man looking sharp. Time for England to panic?
Mad Sakho skills
Any pro can do a keepy up or two, maybe less can pull off a “round the world”, but we’d wager none can copy Mamadou Sakho’s party trick, and he’s a lumbering centre-back.
