Quarters:

Spain - Russia 1
Uruguay - Portugal. Tough one, I'll go 1.
Croatia - Denmark 1
France - Argentina 1
Brazil - Mexico 1
Belgium - Japan 1
Sweden - Switzerland. Another tough one, I'll go with 2.
Colombia - England 2
I literally have the exact same predictions, only I have Sweden over Switzerland.

ok so enter your picks here


Just create a new column with your name on top. Tie breaker works backwards from championship on scores (if two people have the most points and predict the same final score then we go to semis etc)

Uruguay vs Portugal
France vs Argentina
Brazil vs Mexico (but I would love it if Mexico won)
Belgium vs Japan (but I want Japan to win)
Spain vs. Russia
Croatia vs Denmark
Sweden vs Switzerland
Colombia vs England (but I would be delighted if Colombia won)

I'm going to stick my neck out and say that I think it's going to be Brazil vs Croatia in the final and Croatia will win. However, France seem like they are the Germany of the this World Cup (i.e. they seem to play badly and still win) and could surprise Brazil.

That game summarized the Messi Argentina national team era. He never had a defense.

After a great first match, the second was deflating and was ruined by bad officiating.

also i will still accept picks for the bracket at any point, you will have points deducted for lateness however. So I'm guessing the equivalent of one match per day? That way like if you just got the semis/third/championship you couldn't win. Oh hell I don't really care that much.

Well, no-one was expecting that. Serves Spain right for playing for penalties for most of extra time.
