    PF FUTBOL LEAGUE!

    14233501199_8fd670ffa1_o.jpg

    The World Cup is starting in one week! Do you think you can predict the outcomes better than Paul the Octopus? Prove it here!!

    Voting on the winner
    You can start voting on the winner and runner-up right now! But... the longer you wait, the less points you will get!

    Days are counted in GMT.

    Want to try your luck? Just make a post below identifying clearly who you think the winner will be. A mentor will then add your vote to the roster. If you guess the winner correctly, then you will get the amount of post listed. If your winner ends up being the runner-up, then you will get half the points.

    It is possible to change your vote at any time, but this nullifies your previous vote completely.

    Voting in the individual matches
    It is also possible to vote on the outcomes of the matches.

    You get one point for the correct outcome. You get two points for the correct score. Penalty Kicks do not count, but extra time does.

    So for example, you could say that England - Italy will be 3-2. If England does in fact win with 3-2, then you will get 2 points. If England wins with another score, like 2-1, then you will get 1 point.

    Want to try your luck? Just make a post below identifying the correct outcomes and scores of each match. A mentor will add the vote to the roster. Voting is possible until midnight GMT of the game day.

    Good luck!!

    My prediction: The two semifinal games will be more interesting than will the final.

    Semifinals:
    Brazil 2, Germany 1
    Spain 1, Argentina 2

    Final:
    Brazil 3, Argentina 1

    Brazil wins the World Cup.

    I think Belguim will make the semi's...Superb team...Could even win.
    Netherlands are good bet for semis
    Germany for semi
    Spain for semis

    Think England and Brazil and Argentina will go out in the quarter finals.Italy won't make it out of group (England and Uraguay will, with England winning group).

    Anything can happenand depends greatly who tops each group.Some of the bigger nations could be paired in last 16.

    Brazil - Argentina 4:3

    I agree the Italy, Uruguay, England group is the REAL group of death, but I see England being the team left behind, while USA escapes the "second toughest" group, simply because even Christian Ronaldo doesn't make Portugal a contender (nor the USA group nearly as tough as the England group).

    My prediction:
    Group A: Brazil and Mexico
    Group B: Spain and Netherlands
    Group C: Colombia and Ivory Coast
    Group D: England and Uruguay
    Group E: France and Ecuador
    Group F: Argentina and Bosnia
    Group G: Germany and Portugal
    Group H: Belgium and Russia

    It's hard to say which of groups B, D, and G is the "real" group of death. In a sense, all three are. Three of the top 16 rated teams are going to go home after group play. Groups C and E are also competitive. I would not be at all surprised to see Ecuador advance at the expense of France. That might well mean that all six South American teams advance out of group play. Groups F and H? There's a problem with how FIFA forms the groups.

    My upsets for the group play: In group B, Chile at the expense of Netherlands; in group E, Ecuador will advance at the expense of France; and in group G, USA at the expense of Portugal. If the US does manage to make it out of the group play, they have a good chance of advancing to the round of 8 (where they will be trounced by Argentina).

    Whichever of USA or Portugal takes second in group G, they get to play the winner of group H. That is the best spot to be in for taking second in group play. OTOH, the team that takes first in group G has a non-competitive win over the second place team from group H. That's not good. The competition should build rather than subside before building even more.

    There's a problem with how FIFA forms the groups.

    Germany wins.
    Does that mean that I am guaranteed one extra point for each match Germany wins from round of 16 to finals ?
    So if Germany actually wins, do I actually get 20 points + group wins ?

    Edit: Also, can you please post the group members somewhere in the thread ?

    You need to list the individual matches separately and also give the end score. Right now, I have only registered you consider Germany to be the overall winner. But yes, if you say on the individual matches that germanny wins each time, then you get all these points.

    So predicting Germany for the world cup does not automatically mean a prediction for it to win everything post groups ?

    Thanks :biggrin: It is more convenient to have all the information in this thread.

    Match fixing leading to the 2010 World Cup:
    A soccer referee named Ibrahim Chaibou walked into a bank in a small South African city carrying a bag filled with as much as $100,000 in $100 bills, according to another referee traveling with him. The deposit was so large that a bank employee gave Mr. Chaibou a gift of commemorative coins bearing the likeness of Nelson Mandela.
    ...
    As players from South Africa and Guatemala gathered for their national anthems, Mr. Chaibou stood between the teams at midfield. He was flanked by two assistant referees who had also been selected by Football 4U International, the Singapore-based company that was the front for the match-rigging syndicate.

    They were present because of a shrewd maneuver the fixers had begun weeks earlier to penetrate the highest levels of the South African soccer federation.​
    For more, see http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/01/sports/soccer/fixed-matches-cast-shadow-over-world-cup.html?_r=0


    FIFA recognizes that this is an ever-present risk, and hence may be a risk in the 2014 World CUp.

    It would make our administration a lot easier if you give the individual matches too. Also, you need to give the scores. And a win for Germany doesn't automatically say which score they have!
