4 To Score is Betway's free-to-play prediction game, where you can win £25,000 by simply guessing the first player to score in these four selected World Cup matches.
Here are Adam Drury's picks to get you started...
RUSSIA v EGYPT
Mohamed Salah -
Russia’s slow defence wasn’t tested during last week’s 5-0 victory over Saudi Arabia, but Salah’s return will change that.
The Liverpool forward should ensure that Egypt play with much more pace and ambition than they showed in their opening defeat to Uruguay.
Having scored four goals in his last five internationals, there is no need to look anywhere else for this pick.
PORTUGAL v MOROCCO
Younes Belhanda -
With Cristiano Ronaldo bound to prove the popular pick, separate yourself from the pack by opting for Morocco midfielder Younes Belhanda to break the deadlock.
The 28-year-old scored in both of his side’s last two warm-up matches before the tournament, and was at the heart of their fast start against Iran on Friday.
Portugal were outplayed for much of their 3-3 draw with Spain, and Morocco – who must win this match – are capable of taking the game to them in similar fashion.
URUGUAY v SAUDI ARABIA
Edinson Cavani -
Saudi Arabia’s hapless attempts at dealing with crosses into the box from Russia last week should encourage Cavani.
The striker is more physical than Luis Suarez, so is a better bet to take advantage of any such opportunity, and also looked sharper than his partner in Friday’s win over Egypt.
Having comfortably topped the goalscoring charts in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, it is a matter of time until Cavani makes his mark on the tournament.
IRAN v SPAIN
Isco came close to scoring against Portugal with a ferocious strike that bounced off the crossbar, and he can go one better against Iran.
Whereas Portugal sometimes afforded Spain the space to go direct into Diego Costa on Friday, Iran will play negatively and demand that the 2010 champions break them down.
The Real Madrid midfielder – who has scored seven goals in his last 10 internationals, including a hat-trick against Argentina in March – will be key to those efforts.
