The CUAS World Cup Predictions League
OK, all, it's that time. Doors open for the World Cup predictions league. Rules are as follows:
3 points for the correct result/score
1 point for the correct outcome (within 90 minutes)
I'll also be lobbing in some ways of scoring bonus points along the way to keep the interest going. There will be predictions here every Tuesday during the tournament - you will then have a few days before the games actually take place. If you forget to come before the next round of games start, you will probably still be OK for some later games in that round.
So, without further ado, here's a random selection of first round matches to get you started:
Germany v Costa Rica
Poland v Ecuador
England v Paraguay
Trinidad and Tobago v Sweden
Argentina v Ivory Coast
Serbia and Montenegro v Holland
Mexico v Iran
Angola v Portugal
Australia v Japan
USA v Czech Republic
Italy v Ghana
South Korea v Togo
France v Switzerland
Brazil v Croatia
Spain v Ukraine
Tunisia v Saudi Arabia
And five bonus points if you can name the country that will have scored the most goals at the end of the group stages.
And, finally, three points added or deducted for "the number of African teams to reach the knockout stages". For example, if you said "all five African teams will reach the knockout stages" and none do, you'll lose 15 points. If you say "all five African teams will reach the knockout stages" and all do, you gain 15 points.
Good luck, all...
