Prediction: Croatia v Denmark 0

Posted on June 30, 2018 by David Nugent

Verdict: Croatia win

Best Odds: 20/23

Bookmakers: Coral

Croatia and Denmark head into Sundays last-16 game at the World Cup in Nizhniy Novgorod, with both sides eying a place in the quarter-finals of Russia 2018.


Croatia heads into this game as one of the form teams in Russia, having won all three of their group games against Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland. A 3-0 win over Argentina was a particularly eye-catching result.

The wins in the group stages mean that Zlatko Dalic’s side has picked up four consecutive wins, while also scoring at least twice in all four victories.

Prediction: France win

Best Odds: 5/4

Group C was viewed as a formality and nothing more at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with France expected to run through the other three teams on their way to the knockout stages. While it’s pretty much worked out that way thus far, there are still a handful of potential twists and turns to come as we approach the final set of fixtures for the group stages. In this game, France will be taking on a Denmark side who are still in with a fantastic chance of qualifying for the Round of 16.

Posted on March 14, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has found himself in hot water yet again after an unauthorised trip to Copenhagen in midweek, while getting into a drunk altercation with a taxi driver.

According to the Guardian, the Danish international was said to have been abusive towards a taxi driver due to his drunk state, and threatened the man while damaging and stealing property in the vehicle.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he will fine the striker for his behaviour, and hinted his future with the Londoners was up in the summer following the end of this contract.

How many Arsenal players should be in the England World Cup squad? 0

Posted on March 06, 2014 by David Nugent

Two Arsenal players appeared in England’s 1-0 friendly win over Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night. In truth it was an underwhelming display by the Three Lions and the game was only won by a superb piece of individual skill from Southampton substitute Adam Lallana, who set up Daniel Sturridge for the only goal of the game.


The two Gunners players on display for England were midfield pair Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Neither did their cause for a place in the Three Lions World Cup much good.

Nicklas Bendtner unhappy with a lack of playing time 0

Posted on March 04, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has admitted his frustration of the lack of chances being afforded to him in the Arsenal first-team.

‘If you can find a footballer happy to sit and watch and not play, he needs to find a different job. I want to play. I am fit and ready, and training well. It is up to the manager, not up to me. All I can do is train well. If the manager chooses differently, that is up to him.’

Bendtner to return for Coventry clash 0

Posted on January 24, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner will be fit to feature on the FA Cup 4th round clash against League One side Coventry tonight – manager Arsene Wenger has said.

“Bendtner’s been back in the squad since the start of the week and he’s available if selected.”

The 26-year old has been out of action for the Gunners since the New Year – where he scored in the 2-0 win over Cardiff. With Wenger likely to play a much-reduced starting lineup, Bendtner is a player who could be in line to start against the Sky Blues.

Bendtner the latest to Arsenal injury list 0

Posted on January 02, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has been the latest player added to a growing injury list. The Danish international could be out for the best part of a month as a result.

‘Unfortunately he got injured today. He was a bit unlucky, he said he landed on the foot of a Cardiff player and sprained his ankle. It looks like it is not a question of days, but weeks. I am very sad for us, but for him as well.’ – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Bendtner proving he can deputise for Giroud 0

Posted on December 05, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

For Arsenal’s midweek clash against newly-promoted Hull City, manager Arsene Wenger named Nicklas Bendtner as lone striker which was certainly a shock to many. However, the Danish international didn’t let him down as he scored just minutes into the game and put in a great performance which drew a standing ovation.

It was a dream for the 25-year old as it had been a long time since he played more than just a substitute’s appearance in a league game. What it showed even more was that Wenger now has a player who can potentially step in for first-choice striker Olivier Giroud when the Frenchman needs a rest.

Posted on November 26, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner was arrested yesterday on the grounds of criminal damages to a building. The Danish international took to Instagram to explain the situation.

‘We arrived at the gym, my key fob changed the colour from red (locked) to green (open) but the door remained closed. We thought the door was stuck so we tried to open it and it caused some damage. I apologise for any inconvenience for my neighbours and I have paid in full. We had no part in damaging anything else in the building. The matter is closed with the police.’

Nicklas Bendtner still habouring hopes of leaving Arsenal 0

Posted on November 16, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Despite being given a shock reprieve to play for the Premier League pacesetters, Gunners’ former outcast Nicklas Bendtner has revealed he still wants to leave Arsenal.

‘I want to get away from Arsenal. Whether it is in the winter, we must wait and see. I will make my decision depending on where the greatest sporting challenge lies. Finances, in this context, mean very little to me. It is for the love of the sport that I play today as well.’
