The Samba Stars have flown into London to take on England in yet another prestigious friendly this evening in what will be a stern test for Gareth Southgate’s men. Whilst over the Irish Sea Martin O’Neill’s men take on Denmark in the second leg of their World Cup play off with the tie in the balance at 0-0 in an action packed Tuesday!
The famous Yellow shirts will be appearing at Wembley and after England’s youngsters performed so well against the World Champions last Friday, the media will be keen to see how they fare against Tite’s charges tonight. The Brazilians of course bring with them the Worlds most expensive player in Neymar (£7.10) and he will surely garner a large chunk of the media’s attention. Add into the mix Brazil’s English based stars, Phillipe Coutinho (£5.19), Gabriel Jesus (£3.80) and Roberto Firmino (£1.71) who will all be pushing to be starters for the Brazilians in Russia and any match winning moments will make them front runners for the media buzz!
England are yet again turning to youngsters with the star against Germany, Ruben Loftus-Cheek (To be IPO’d tomorrow, list here) looking to book his place on the plane with another strong performance in the absence of some of England’s leading lights. Will their be debuts for the likes of Liverpool’s Dominic Solanke (£0.96) who has been called up by Southgate to the senior side? The tie is surely going to dominate the media’s attention and in a triple media day will it be dominated by Brazilians or Englishmen?
Over the Irish Sea the World Cup play off between Ireland and Denmark is anything but friendly with a place in Russia up for grabs. A tense 0-0 draw in Denmark has only hyped up the tension ahead of tonight’s game and Italy’s shortcomings last night really does ram home the consequence of failure!
Ireland are represented on the Index by Burnley’s Robbie Brady (£0.44), who at such a low price is very low risk for traders but has plenty of room to grow with a telling contribution! The Danes will be looking to their own free kick master and Spurs ace, Christian Eriksen (£1.95) who with a match winning performance may well break into the media top 3 at the end of the day! One thing for sure is that the game will be tense!
