Diligent defence 59

TheProfessor 43

(andy 28 - no prediction entered for rounds 2 or 3, so I'm assuming he's dropped out).

Ian extends his lead at the top of the board, but there's still very little in it. No change in the rankings from round 1, as this round was much closer overall - only 8 points between all 8 players.

Notes:

Upset of the round: This round was much more predictable than round 1, hence the closer bracket. No contest for this one - despite what were in retrospect the warning signs, nobody saw Croatia's defeat of Argentina coming.

Prediction of the round: Well done to diligent defence for getting spot on the 1-1 draw between Australia and Denmark. No other player predicted a draw from that game.

Most predictable game of the round: Uruguay's defeat of Saudi Arabia - every player called the result correctly, although there was only one correct score. Honourable mention to England's defeat of Panama, which was universally predicted, although nobody in this case got the score (or the five goal margin...).

Thanks all for round 3 predictions.

The round of 16 games follow very quickly after the end of round 3, so to give people a little more time to submit predictions, I'll let people split their entries into two parts if they want.

Predictions for the first 4 games in the round of 16 (those played by teams from groups A-D) will open as soon as the group C and D games have concluded on Tuesday UK time, and will close midnight UK time before the first round of 16 game on Saturday.

Predictions for the second 4 games in the round of 16 (those played by teams from groups E-H) will open as soon as the group G and H games have concluded on Thursday UK time, and will close midnight UK time before the round of 16 games between those teams that start on Monday.

Make sense?
