World Cup Betting - ARGENTINA vs NIGERIA by Isaac Remponi

Let the saga continueâ€. Wait, no one knows about it! Yes, it’s true, the countries of Argentina and Nigeria have been battling it out for the better part of twenty years on the pitch, yet somehow, nobody even really notices. So when these two tango on June 12th in their first Group B match, believe me, it will be extremely heated.

You see, Nigeria has never beaten Argentina in the World Cup, and this will be the third time that these two countries have faced off against each other in the group stage. Argentina was victorious in the ’94 and ’02 campaigns, and in the ’95 Confederations Cup, Nigeria could only muster up a draw in another group stage match against the Argentineans. Strangely enough, though, Nigeria has beaten Argentina for the Olympic Gold Metal in ’96, but lost to them in the Gold Metal game at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. At the youth FIFA Under-20 World Cup final in 2005, Argentina once again beat Nigeria. But since ’93, Nigeria has beaten Argentina four out of five times at the youth FIFA Under-17 World Cup games. The history begins heating up at a young age, but as the players get older, the Argentines seem to excel more than the Nigerians do. And the talent is evident at this year’s World Cup. World Cup betting is keeping a close eye on this rivalry.

Argentina brings with them a plethora of talent up front. In fact, it’s probably more than they need to get the job done. Last year’s FIFA World Player Of The Year Lionel Messi (club: Barcelona) will be leading the charge along with super talented goal scorers Carlos Tevez (Manchester City) and Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid, possibly linked with a move to English club powerhouse Chelsea). The attacking prowess is further deepened by veteran forward Diego Milito (Inter Milan) and youngster Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid). The Defense is anchored by World Cup veterans Walter Samuel (Inter Milan), Javier Zanetti (also Inter Milan), Gabriel Heinze (French club Marseille), and Martin Demichelis (German juggernaut Bayern Munich). The midfield will be thin, but serviceable, with Liverpool teammates Javier Mascherano and Maxi Rodriguez, and another Inter Milan player, Esteban Cambiasso, hoping to provide support for the multitude of forwards.

The toxicity of this team is really their anchor, as head coach Diego Maradona (yes, that Maradona) tries to execute a proper game plan for this team. His personal battle of drug addiction, alcoholism, and inability to deal with cultural fame has caused for some riffs on the team since he took over as manager in 2008. Key players have left the team because of philosophical differences with Maradona, and the shaky start to his campaign has put him in the hotseat. A bad showing for a country that has appeared in the World Cup fourteen times and won it twice will mean the end for the controversial Maradona, and World Cup betting.

But here comes Nigeria, just the remedy for the Argentineans. Not to say Nigeria will lay over and die, because they bring a talented, but less experienced squad to the Cup. With this being their fourth appearance, not much will be expected from them. But the players and their nation know they can make some noise. Forwards Nwankwo Kanu and John Utaka both play for Portsmouth in the English Premier League, and will be counted on to do the scoring. Midfielder John Obi Mikel (Chelsea) has yet to live up to his youth hype at his club, but can be a very productive player. Defender Joseph Yobo (Everton) is an old-school type of physical player with experience in previous World Cups. Nigeria’s speed can usually counter any lack of talent they have on the field, but going up against quick attackers the likes of a Messi or Tevez will be a handful.

In the end, Argentina’s history against Nigeria, and success in previous World Cups, will outmatch anything Nigeria can put together. A high-scoring affair this game should be, with the result going, once again, to the Argentineans by at least a goal or two. Who are you picking as a World Cup bettor?

World Cup Powerhouse

Bold and Beautiful: A Taste of Brazilian Fashion by Laine McKenna

When it comes to fashion, women have shown time and time again that they’ll do anything to stand out. From exotic-looking purses, to imported designer threads from Italy, fitted jeans that provide a â€lift,†and a prized pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos, today’s woman wants to stand out.

But sometimes in order to do that, women must venture away from the traditional powerhouse shoe designers like Prada, Gucci, and Fendi and go towards lesser-known and even up-and-comer designer shoe companies. It’s why women from all over the world are clamoring for the latest fad †Brazilian fashion.

Check any international runway and you’ll quickly spot Brazilian influence. Whether it’s a superstar supermodel like Adriana Lima, who hails from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, or Rio Grande do Sul native, Gisele Bundchen, who has been largely credited with ending the â€heroin chic†look of modern-day models, and instead bringing a healthier looking woman to the runway.

But it’s not just the breathtakingly beautiful models that are getting attention on international fashion runways. Fashion designs themselves are getting some Brazilian flair, including bold, lively colors, including rich reds, coral, yellow, and white, with subtle metallic accents, including belts and jewelry. Victoria’s Secret even devoted its entire swimsuit catalog to Brazilian-inspired swimwear!

You can even find Brazilian inspiration in today’s popular shoes. Gone are subtle, demure heels. Instead they’ve been replaced by thick, chunky four-inch heels, and huge blocks of color from designers such as Luz da Lua and Morena Rosa. Paired with a mini skirt, shorts, a fringe dress, or a fitted pair of capris and you’ve got â€hot, hot, hot!â€

Much of fashion’s gravitation towards Brazil can stem from its energy and attitude, and shows no signs of slowing down. When the economic recession has crumbled many countries, including the U.S., Brazil actually showed a staggering 9% increase in economic growth during the first quarter of 2010. And all one needs to do is check out Sao Paulo Fashion week to believe the words Suleman Anaya wrote in The Business of Fashion magazine †â€Brazil believes in itself.â€

Credit the World Cup (2014) and the Olympic Games (2016) for a sudden wave of optimism in Brazil, which is reflected in everything from fashion, to music, to pop culture, and of course, in the attitude of its citizens, many of whom have jumped into an ever-growing middle class.

The women of Brazil, in particular, are getting more and more opportunities with education and in the case of Bundchen and Lima †super-stardom through modeling. Brazil has now become a hot bed for producing supermodels. Because of this, they carry themselves differently. They walk taller. They stand proud. They see a world of possibilities that were once not afforded to them.

It’s this sudden wave of confidence that makes this country, and its production of high-fashion goods more attractive than ever. In fact, people are scouring to be a part of Brazil’s lively boom in culture and economy, with such confidence becoming almost contagious. And when it’s comes to confidence †that is truly the sexiest accessory a woman could ever wear.

Looking for Womens Brazilian Designer Shoes? Heavenly Heels is an Online Brazilian Designer Shoe Store and St Petersburg Shoe Boutique offering fashion-forward footwear straight from Brazil!
