Paul Robinson’s World Cup Predictions
‘Robbo’ said England were a ‘hair’s breadth’ away from beating France in the quarter finals and would like to see Gareth Southgate continue in the managerial role. The former stopper said that the 52-year-old had earnt the right to choose his own future and would like him to have another pop at Euro 2024, which is just 18 months away.
Looking ahead to the midweek semi finals, Robinson thinks that the matches will go as the bookies predicted but had a longshot for us in the first semi between Argentina and Croatia. He expects Luca Modric & co to drag the tournament 2nd favourites into the latter stages of the match and into a penalty shootout. However, he’s backing Lionel Messi’s men to emerge victorious from the 12-yard spot.
To nobodies surprise at all, Robbo is picking France to qualify in 90 minutes against the story of the tournament, The Atlas Lions.
