Irish Gamblers Ready for World Cup Knockouts

Irish football fans anticipate a little flutter in the knock out rounds of World Cup 2010.

The French are out! Not that we want to rehash old grievances, but when it comes to football, grudges die hard. If we're honest, more than a few of us were pretty happy to see Thierry Henry and his colleagues promptly exiting the South African arena amid what Irish journalists have dubbed "le meltdown."

So, after the French team's shameful World Cup departure, the players' rebellion and the expulsion of Nicolas Anelka, just what do we Irish have to look forward to in the knockout stages of the tournament?

The Bets Are Still On

Would we have won the World Cup if we had qualified? Let's face it - it's doubtful. But can we still make a few bob in the meantime? Absolutely!
