'Although I am English (and) I have to suffer with England, my money is on America to beat them on Saturday. I think... (it's) a good bet,' admits the Monty Python star.

Monty Python star Eric Idle won't be rooting for his native England when the team opens it's World Cup run in South Africa on Saturday, June 12, he'll be cheering for his adopted U.S.A. England are the clear favorites to win the match, but Idle is betting on the Americans to cause a major upset.

He says, "I'm excited... Although I am English (and) I have to suffer with England, my money is on America to beat them on Saturday. I think... (it's) a good bet. You can get decent odds in England on this, because the English are very confident. But the Americans are a very good team, very hard to beat. So, it'll probably end up a tie, I would think."
