    First of all, some of the pre-contest predictions

    Top of Group B - Everyone except SirSam went with Spain so points to them.

    Brazil first goal - Scored by Coutinho, so points to TheImplications, Pringle and Bear

    0 Points in group - Surprisingly only two teams, Panama and Egypt. Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iceland all scrapped at least a point. anonymous, SirSam, Golden, Pringle, Mazza, Smiffy and Shee pick up the points.


    As for Round 3, Russia were the only team to pick up a red card, no points there.

    Now, there is a point of contention here. Cheryshev was chosen by Oliver and Prime Time as the answer to bonus for a goalscorer in the Uruguay vs Russia game. He scored... an own goal. I have decided not to count this as a valid answer (sorry!) as the intention behind the bonus was for who scored a goal for their own team. I'll try and make things clearer going forward. However, points go to Gooner, Anonymous, Freeman, Sketch, Mazza, Smiffy, Shee for correctly guessing Cavani and Suarez.

    Player of the round is Shee with 18, but a mention for Oliver for correctly guessing 4 consecutive scores.

    Player w/o Pts
    Oliver 38 48
    Freeman 28 48
    Mazza 26 46
    Shee 30 45
    Prime Time 31 41
    Heisenberg 31 41
    Gooner 26 41
    Bear 33 38
    Smiffy 27 37
    Sketch 26 36

    SirSam 19 29

    I assumed Cheryshev wouldn't count for an own goal anyway, but thanks forr confirming Gooner.

    Does four correct scores now put me on the easy side of the draw?

    So just wanting to confirm before I put in the predictions not that it really changes my thoughts but:

    “4) Any bonus questions that ask for a player or team must be answered with specifically - 'no one' or ‘none’ is not a valid answer. However, for number questions, you can answer '0'. Also, there may be occasions where a player’s surname is not enough (e.g. ‘Dos Santos’ would not be valid answer as I would not know whether that is for Giovanni Dos Santos or his brother Jonathan Dos Santos for the Mexican team).

    6) All predictions, even in the knock-out rounds in the cup, are for the end of regular time. You get nothing for the score at the end of 120 minutes, or predicting who'll win a shootout. However, this is the sort of thing that might comprise a bonus question.”

    So does that mean they have to score before the end of regular time for the first bonus question? Or are all bonus questions immune from “all predictions”

    Good point. It's immune from the 90 minute rule. So long as it is not in a penalty shootout (and as mentioned earlier in the thread, not an own goal) then it will be classed as valid.

    Bonuses do tend to have a little more leeway than regular predictions.

    Too easy. Just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page and knew what to cheer for!

    Saturday, June 30: France vs Argentina - 3pm - 0-0
    Saturday, June 30: Uruguay vs Portugal - 7pm - 0-0
    Sunday, July 1: Spain vs Russia - 3pm - 1-0
    Sunday, July 1: Croatia vs Denmark- 7pm - 2-0
    Monday, July 2: Brazil vs Mexico - 3pm - 1-0
    Monday, July 2: Belgium vs Japan - 7pm - 3-0
    Tuesday, July 3: Sweden vs Switzerland - 3pm - 2-1
    Tuesday, July 3: Colombia vs England - 7pm 0-2

    Bonus 1: Name any goalscorer from the Saturday games (Penalty Shootouts will not count). Mbappe.

    Bonus 2: Name a game that go to extra time. I can see 4 games going to extra time so that makes it tough. Think both are going to penalties tonight but I’ll go with Uruguay v Portugal.

    SPECIAL DOUBLE POINTS Bonus 3: How many Group winners will qualify for the next round? 6

    I think I've had a proper shocker here. Only got the Belgium result right with the wrong score so far.

    Russia vs Croatia, Saturday 7th July, 3pm

    Pre-contest bonus awarded to Gooner, Anonymous, Sketch, Prime Time, Mazza and Heisenberg for correctly guessing a team to be eliminated in the last 16.

    Scorers on the Saturday included Griezmann, Pavard, Mbappe, Di Maria, Mercado, Aguero, Cavani and Pepe. Points to Bear and Heisenberg.

    3 games went to extra time, points to SirSam only.

    Finally, 6 group winners progressed to the Quarter Finals. Everyone mostly seemed to go for 5 or 6. This bonus was double points, they go to Pringle, Freeman, Sketch, Mazza and Heisenberg.

    Scoring wise, very low scoring round. Mazza top scored with 7 points.

    This was my rule and it was introduced because people quickly worked out that predicting no one is always better than predicting any one individual. Your odds were always better and there was a convergence around predicting no one.

    So it was either introduce the rule or do away with those bonuses entirely.
