Here's the league table after 5 games. If you want to enter late, that's OK – email me and predict Group D. Latecomers get 1 point per game missed, which would be equal last at the moment :) but plenty of time to go. (Knockouts will have a maximum 4 points per game.)


1   tc-in-bc       9 points
2   coey          8 points
3   FC Equality    7 points
4   sbahnhof       6 points
5   Aphrodite's Child    5 points


Key to points: R result, D goal difference, T one team's score, maximum 3 pts

We now know some of the quarter-finalists. Here's what to think about when you're predicting:

Knockout games: Guess each team's score in the match, just like in the group stage. You can guess a drawn scoreline if you want to.

4 points maximum for a correct prediction

Most matches will probably be decided in the normal 90 minutes, but the points are generous if the game goes to extra time. A correct guess after 90 minutes will be rewarded. Equally, so will a correct guess after 120 minutes, if the score changes during extra time. But penalty shootouts don't count. Not in this game.

Acquire points if you correctly predict:
- a result after 90 mins or after 120 mins (1 point max)
- goal difference after 90 mins or 120 mins (1 point max)
- a team's score after 90 mins or 120 mins (1 point max per team)


It's to try and keep it interesting and fair - and not totally ignore extra time, as it can be the best bit ;D  In the event of an extra-time victory, both a draw and a win would count as correct 'result' predictions. (A draw was true after 90 mins, but the winner was decided in 120 mins.)

E.g. If you predicted FRANCE 2-1 GERMANY and the match ended 1-1, then 2-2 AET, you would get 1 point for Germany's score (90 mins), and 1 point for France's score (AET), but nothing for the result or goal difference. Guesses of 1-1 or 2-2 would both get the maximum 4 points.

THANK YOU Aphrodite's for making more interesting guesses than everyone else's "it's 2011 all over again" ;)

Remember, if there's extra time, all predictions get two bites of the cherry. And penalty shoot-outs don't exist. ("The England approach".)

eagerly awaiting table update; must admit terribly disappointed that there was no Portugal vs Norway fixture, would have been fun on Twitter, tv score caption etc

potential for a #DENNED or #NEDDEN final
