ROUND OF 16 RESULTS

France v Argentina 4-3
Uruguay v Portugal 2-1
Spain v Russia 1-1 (RUS)
Croatia v Denmark 1-1 (CRO)
Brazil v Mexico 2-0
Belgium v Japan 3-2
Sweden v Switzerland 1-0
Colombia v England 1-1 (ENG)

Player scores after round of 16

ianp1970 150

Gingerfinch 137
GG-Amir Sohail 137
Diligent defence 126
durhamfootman 113
mikesiva 112
sussexpob 105

Professor 76

ian retakes the lead, but there's still only just over one prediction in it. 56 games down, 8 to go, but plenty still to play for.

Notes (probably the last round I'll do this, as there won't be enough games for it to make sense).

Upset of the round: No prizes for guessing that Russia's draw with Spain, and subsequent penalty win, was foreseen by no-one. Curiously though, nobody saw Sweden getting the better of Switzerland, either. The closest was diligent defence, who predicted a draw followed by Sweden on penalties.

Prediction of the round: Well done to mike, for being the only player to call a draw between Croatia and Denmark.

Most predictable game: Again, no prizes for guessing that everyone saw Brazil beating Mexico. Three players correctly predicted the 2-0 scoreline.

given how useless I am at predicting winners, I'm just going to put down the scores I'd like to see, even though there is probably little chance of them being realised

Friday July 6 Uruguay v France 1-2
Friday July 6 Brazil v Belgium 7pm 1-2
Saturday July 7 Sweden v England 3pm 0-2
Saturday July 7 Russia v Croatia 7pm 0-1

how cool would it be to get rid of all the south of Trumpland cynical teams who bring football into disrepute?
