All the clawing and clamouring can finally stop as, to great crowd delight, the international break finally kicks off with a six-game strong friendly schedule.
Never ones to back down from their commitment to providing trebles at enhanced prices, bwin.com have an entire slate of their infamous Combi+ offers to choose from for the ocassion.
No doubt the pick of them sees Denmark, Germany and Scotland bundled together all to win at a delicious-looking price of 4/1.
Here’s how each side fares in holding up their end of the bargain:
Denmark to beat USA
Since falling to Belgium in extra-time of the World Cup’s round-of-16, the convolutedly acronymed USMNT have been dining on an exclusive diet of international friendlies.
With a lack of competitive edge in their schedule, Jurgen Klinsmann’s side have struggled to find any form.
In the seven games they have played since that Brazilian exit, the USA have won just twice and suffered defeat on their last two away days.
Denmark, on the other hand, have triumphed in four of their last six internationals at home, with maligned former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner bagging a brace in their last victory.
Germany to beat Australia
The last time these two sides met, the Socceroos caused an upset with a 2-1 away win in 2011. Seeing as the Germans have pumped four past them in the two other battles the pair have had, that victory looks to be an anomaly rather than the start of a trend.
Word of a World Cup hangover for Die Mannschaft has been brief as the side have won to nil in their last two outings, most recently with a one-goal victory in Spain’s backyard, while the Australians haven’t played anyone of note since losing to Belgium last September.
Scotland to beat Northern Ireland
Many might think that Joachim Low’s men would be the banker of this 4/1 gamble, but in reality it’s Gordan Strachan’s side at Hampden Park.
Only three sides have visited Scotland since 2010 and left victorious, with four of the last five guests at the Scottish fortress being shut out completely.
Add in the fact that Northern Ireland have only won two of their last 20 games on the road and it’s easy to see why the Scots inspire the most confidence of the chosen treble.
