STAR PREVIEW: Norway Women v England Women

You can tell it’s an even quieter sporting day when Partick Thistle are making the news because of their new mascot……

trendIncredibly, their new mascot is the third biggest story in the United Kingdom at the moment and looking at the picture (above) you can perhaps see why.

Meet Kingsley, described variously as ‘terrifying’, ‘the demented sun god of Scotland’ and, from a former mascot ‘Kingsley will bring shame on the good name of mascots’.

I have it on good authority that, despite the star like qualities of the new mascot, Star Sports’ Ben Keith distanced himself from the new creation. However, reports of him actually BEING the mascot are, as yet, unconfirmed.

Best tweet though came from rivals Hibs – enjoying every moment of it……


Bets for me are limited today but I’m having a small wager on the Norway Women against England Women at around 19/10 with Star Sports.

The match is on BBC3 at 10pm and is the start of the knockout phase of the competition. England have never won a match at this stage of the World Cup.

I just feel Norway’s form is stronger. They easily defeated Thailand and Ivory Coast and secured a 1-1 draw with world number ones Germany to finish second in Group B.

England finished second in Group F after victories over Mexico and Colombia but lost against France.

RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)

BACK NORWAY WOMEN for 6 points at around 19/10 with Star Sports
