Alright, yours truly and Vee, and I don't know who else participated back then, did this kind of thing back in the 2010 WC. What you need to do is guess what will be the final scores of the matches. If you guess the score and winner right, you earn 3 points plus an extra point for having guessed right. If you guess the winner right but not the score, you just get 1 point. And if you don't guess the scores right, or the winner, you don't get points. Whoever accumulates the most points by the end of the WC will be declared the Champion and will win a prize or something, maybe a gift from the Shop. :)

So, you think you're a good guesser/predictor? Guess away, just make sure you submit your guesses before the games are played. So here are tomorrow's (Saturday's) matches. My guesses are below as well.

Saturday June 14th Matches

Columbia VS Greece

Ivory Coast Vs Japan

Uruguay Vs Costa Rica

England Vs Italy

Overall prediction: US will crash and burn in round 2 or 3.
It's funny because this'll probably happen. ^ lmao


I'm in this thing just for the really hot soccer players. :D

For the four games posted, I'm not good with scores, but Colombia, Japan, Uruguay (might tie), and England (might tie or lose) will win.

Give me scores, or get out. Who cares if the US burns in the second or third round? This is a prediction game, not a discussion. You wanna discuss, use the WC Talk thread.

Do you mean the second or third game or the second or third knock out game?

Because if we get into the final 8 that would be incredible for the squad we're fielding


Also my picks from another thread, I'll take Columbia 2-1 over Greece, I have England and Italy in a 1-1 draw, Japan 2-1 over Ivory Coast and Uruguay over Costa Rica 2-1.

Well the Colombia game has started, but my original prediction was 2-1.

Other games:

Uruguay 3-1 Costa Rica (might depend on how well Cavani plays though)

Italy 1-1 England (Hot and humid, might be hard to play in. I think the Italians will dominate early on and we'll come on late)

Japan 1-1 Ivory Coast (very evenly matched, should be a good game)

Switzerland 2-2 Ecuador
France 2-0 Honduras
Argentina 2-1 Bosnia-Herzegovina <-- I think Bosnia will actually give the much favoured Argentinians a really good game, they have a great attack in Dzeko and Ibisevic. Both teams have really poor defences also.

The Switzerland 1-0 Ecuador (Switzerland are quite overrated by Fifa, but they'll be too strong)

France 2-0 Honduras (France are an odd team, but I've watched Honduras and they're pretty poor)

Argentina 3-1 Bosnia Herzegovina (Bosnia aren't pushovers; they've got a great attack, but Argentina have the wonder kid, Messi and other players like Aguero, Di Maria, Lavezzi etc.)
