A comfortable 10-6 lead heading into the final day of an enthralling Ryder Cup 2014 at Gleneagles, Europe will look to pick up those necessary four points needed to retain their title when they continue their encounter with the USA on Sunday.

While the USA have looked good in the fourballs, Europe have been utterly dominant in the foursomes -- the more difficult format -- pointing to the fact that the hosts remain the better team. That foursomes dominance has helped Europe to take that commanding lead, and even if the USA will hope to do a lot better in the singles, it will take an almighty choke from the home team for the Americans to claw their way back and win back the Ryder Cup.

"A four-point lead going into the last round is great," said Europe captain Paul McGinley. "But obviously the big word is complacency. The big word is not conceding momentum -- they are the two words.

"And just being on it tomorrow, that's the most important thing. This job is far from finished. We're in great position, but we've got a lot of work to do tomorrow."

While Europe have not quite retained the Ryder Cup yet, the work to be done is certainly in USA's end, with the cracks in the team showing up quite clearly after captain Tom Watson admitted he had turned down a vehement appeal from Phil Mickelson to be played in the foursomes on Saturday afternoon.

Mickelson and his previously successful partner Keegan Bradley did not come out at all on Saturday. "I expected exactly what Phil said to me," Watson said. "He said: 'We can get it done, captain. We want the chance.' I said: 'Well, I think the way this golf course sets up, the four teams I put out there gives us the best chance.'

"He lobbied again. He texted me, he said: 'Give us a chance.' I had to tell him no. I felt that we had the four best teams possible in the afternoon for alternate shot.

"He [Mickelson] didn't play very well yesterday. I told him that. I said: 'You struggled yesterday [Friday].' And whether that was from being tired or the course not being set up exactly for his type of game, I had to make that decision."

Well, that decision certainly backfired as Europe romped to victory in the foursomes, and Mickelson will come out on Sunday with a point or three to prove when he faces Stephen Gallacher, who also did not play any part on Saturday.

First up on Sunday, though, is Graeme McDowell, who formed an unbeatable partnership with rookie Victor Dubuisson in the foursomes, and Jordan Spieth, the USA debutant who has looked so good.

That match should set the tone for the rest of the day ahead, and if USA manage to pull off a comeback, then surely it will be one of the best the Ryder Cup has seen for quite a while.
