Online betting soccer fans know that only the best of the best will survive into the soccer betting final field of 16 teams including host countries Switzerland and Austria.
With not all that much time left for qualifying, France is sitting very pretty. It leads its soccer betting group by two points. And its group is no walk in the park considering it includes the reigning soccer betting World Cup Champions and the current number one team in the world right now according to FIFA rankings, Italy.
The French kept up its form this past week with recent win over lightweight Georgia. However, it was a bit of a scare for the French side as they could muster only one goal against the soccer betting minnow on their own home field. But the one goal they did get was set up by a masterful play by French mid-fielding regular, Frank Ribery. Ribery took an incredibly difficult pass from teammate Francois Clerk, controlled it and cut past two defenders all in the same motion, and took down the right side. He then cut the ball back across the middle in a perfect setup for young Samir Nasri, who rolled the ball into the back of the net. Online betting soccer experts know that it was the 19-year old Nasri’s first goal in only his third appearance for his national squad. But if he keeps up his play, it would seem there will be many more opportunities to come for the young midfielder.
However, the soccer betting game was much more lopsided than the score may have indicated. The French attacked the daylights out of the Georgian defense and already had 13 shots on goal by the 27th minute, even though only one found its mark. With the win the French total shot to 18, good enough for first place in the soccer betting group and stayed two points clear of the Italians with seven soccer betting games played. Online betting soccer results showed us that Georgia sits near the bottom of the soccer betting group with six points.
