Well Brazil out then!

Two winners today in normal time, France and Belgium.

Many congratulations to Boggers who nailed both predictions for 6 points - everybody else got their predictions wrong (indeed LT's were so bad he named them twice! - only joking mate).

So easy for me to score, everybody remains on the same points they had at the start of the day apart from Boggers who gains on everybody else by six points - the table now looking like this -

LT still in front with 32 points Peter remaining in second but now joined by Boggers on 29, with poor BTID now trailing badly still on 19 points.

But as Boggers proved big points can be won and gaps can still be closed relatively easily still.

Onwards to todays games and of course England!

England v Sweden
Russia v Croatia

What do you think?

Well we did it and march on to the semi-finals!

Our leader LT did it too hitting a maximum 9 points for predicting and England win (3 points) and a draw after 90 minutes (3 points) with Croatia winning in the end (bonus 3 points).

Poor Peter and Boggers also got the England win in 90 minutes and the draw in the other game but predicted the wrong winners and so got hit with a minus 3 point jeopardy to end up with a net 3 point result each.

BTID also got 3 points for the England win in 90 minutes but wrongly went for the Croatia win in 90 minutes also and thus didn't get any points for that, leaving him net 3 points also.

So the scores on the doors - LT stretching his lead to 41 points, Peter and Boggers following him on 32 points apiece and BTID in the rear on 22.

However now we've reached the semi's the points (and jeopardy) ratchets up once again.

It is now four point for a correct result in 90 minutes (don't forget you can 'stick' at a draw for 90 minutes if you want to and avoid the jeopardy - but at the same time you might kick yourselves if you didn't go for the bonus points if your team goes on to win the match after 120 minutes!

The bonus if you did go for it is another 4 points but the jeopardy is now a minus 6 points)

He who dares though...

Anyway as we all know the semi's are

Belgium v France
England v Croatia.


Gentlemen place your bets!

France in the final but who will they play?

Well France wins in 90 minutes and LT and Boggers call it correctly for 4 points each whilst Peter and BTID come up blank.

All of you have gone for England in 90 minutes so I might as well do the update now then add on another 4 points for you all this time tomorrow - fingers crossed and all that!

LT - 45, Boggers - 36, Peter - 32, BTID - 22.

Pity that you're going to lose out to England twice then!

Very Happy

I'll be cheering on France Sluffy. Just need BTID or Karly to get me a few French flag emojis on the forum.

Ouuch. Oh well, two predictions left.

FINAL: DRAW at 90 mins. FRANCE to win,

Well the dreams over.

Everybody's score remain the same.

Next game is the 3rd and 4th place plat off - England v Belgium.

Tricky game to judge as do both teams take the game seriously or do they give the players in their squad who haven't played in the tournament so far a game?

Anyway same points/penalties/jeopardies as the semi-finals.

Place your bets.

Belgium win.

Seems as though Boggers and BTID have given up as neither predicted for the 3rd/4th place play off game, nor up to now tonight's final.

With LT getting yesterdays result right and Peter getting it wrong the score now looks like this with just one match to go -

LT - 49, Boggers - 36, Peter - 32, BTID - 22.

The final game has 5 points for the correct outcome after 90 minutes and a bonus of 5 after 120 minutes but a jeopardy of 10 if not!

There is still an outside chance that LT could be overtaken but it feels to me more likely that today is merely the procession to him being crowned our champion.

Last chance for those still to predict the outcome.

Gentlemen over to you.
