    I hope you are right about England getting to the semi's, can't see it my self ! It will help my £50 on Rooney getting the golden boot at 27-1 😉

    You would have been better off betting it on him getting sent off!

    if you're going top win that bet (i've put money on both rooney and messi for that) they have to get to the semis.

    ok, lets see what we’ve got here.

    got the top two right in-group a and c but in the wrong order. argentina and germany to top their groups, tick. s. korea surprised me and nigeria still should've beaten then to second spot. ghana second place was also a bit of a surprise. 10 men aus almost/should’ve beat them.

    other side of the draw, picked the four group winners here with chile and portugal getting second in their groups. who would've thunk italy wouldn't have narrowly got second place? even at 3-1 down i thought they would still come back, it's italy after all... almost did as well. they were poor though. no pirlo = crap italian side. cameroon let me down big time but japan played well, out of all the group i got that second place finish terribly wrong. but first time s. korea or japan have ever reached the second round when they weren’t hosts…

    all in all, not bad. 12 of my 16 teams in the second round with 6 of 8 correct group winners’ predictions. not bad.

    revised path to the brazil - argentina final


    quatarfinals -

    ghana vs uruguay
    brazil vs holland

    argentina vs england*
    spain vs paraguay

    semifinals -

    uruguay vs brazil
    argentina vs spain




    *idiots should've won their group and i hope germany beat them on pens.

    There's something wrong with your predictions, Spain is going out in the next round.

    funny how the draw worked out, 6 european teams in the last 16 with them all playing each other.

    3 of the 4 stand out ties as well.

    if they don't drop torres and deco doesn't play portugal have a good chance. still fancy spain though.
