All of the seeds progressed yesterday on the opening night of the World Cup Of Darts, and the eight seeds that will play their first round matches on Friday night will be aiming to do exactly the same.

Sky Sports commentator John Part will be representing Canada along with Ken MacNeil in the first match of the night as they come up against New Zeland, who have experienced Rob Szabo and Warren Parry on their side.

Magnus Caris and Daniel Larsson will be taking to the stage for Sweden in the second match of the evening when they come up against Hungary’s Nandor Bezzeg and Gabor Takacs, and the number fifteen seeds will be aiming to progress to the next stage of the competition.

Mark Webster’s task for the weekend will be to rediscover some of the form he was displaying a few years ago when he teams up with Jamie Lewis, and the Welshmen’s first task will be seeing off Hong Kong.

Connie Finnan and William O’Connor, who have both had a couple of good runs on the ProTour this year will be aiming to see off their first round opponents Poland on Friday night.

Northern Ireland, represented by Brendan Dolan and Mickey Mansell, who had a fantastic run in the tournament last year will be looking to better their performance last year by winning in the semi-finals, but first they must overcome their opponents in the first round, who are Thailand.

A new look Scotland side consisting of Peter Wright and Gary Anderson will be aiming high and aiming to win the tournament this year, and kick off their World Cup campaign with a match against Singapore in the first round.

The Netherlands are many people’s favourites to lift the tournament this year and retain their title, so getting past the first round should be no problem for MVG and RVB when they come up against the USA.

South Africa, including crowd pleaser Devon Peterson and Graham Filby will be confident of getting their World Cup underway with a win when they face Finland in the final game of the night. However, Finland have knocked seeds out of the tournament in the first round before, will they do it again?
