Coral release new World Cup free bets offer : Money back should Brazil or Argentina win!

The World Cup 2014 is now on the horizon as Coral announce a new free bets offer for the action in South America – They will refund all world cup bets should Brazil or Argentina win the tournament!

Did you know that every world cup hosted in South America has been won by a South American team?

Let’s do a quick history lesson. In 1930 hosts Uruguay won the first world cup with the final held in the capital city of Montevideo. Okay, so this holds up so far but we are just one in.

Twenty years later, those pesky Uruguayans made history when they reclaimed the world cup from Italy winning the first tournament held in Brazil. Not just that they did so by beating the hosts 2-1 in the final.

In 1962 Chile were the hosts and while unlike the two previous hosts who at least made the finals there was no fairy-tale story in Santiago as Brazil claimed their second Jules Rimet trophy with a 3-1 win over Czechoslovakia, becoming the second team to retain it after Italy.

Three from three so far. In 1970 we moved a further north with Mexico hosting the tournament and yes you guessed it, a South American team won with Brazil moving ahead of Italy and Uruguay as the most successful team in World Football with three trophies.

In 1978 Argentina claimed their first trophy on home soil with a 3-1 win over Holland and eight years later they beat another European side, West Germany, as the tournament made a return to Mexico with Mexico City become the first country to host two world cup finals.

While tournaments had up to that point shifted between Europe and South America a changing of the guard was coming starting with the 1994 world with moved to North America.

The change mattered little however as Brazil ensured that all world cup held in the Americas stayed there as they beat Italy in perhaps one of the worst finals of all time.

Since then we have yet to return to the Americas with the 2014 World cup in Brazil the first time a tournament has been held in South America in 28 years and in first in the Americas since the 94 tournament.

So there you have it. All tournaments held in South America or indeed the Americas have been won by South American teams.

This leads us on nicely to the crazy offer available from Coral. The bookmaker is offering your money back as a free bet if either Brazil or Argentina win the 2014 World Cup.

The two are amongst the favourites for the world cup and boast the respective talents of Neymar and Lionel Messi.
