Re: World Cup Competition - Leaderboard 5 Dec
« on: October 26, 2022, 02:18:36 AM »
Less than a month to the World Cup, so here goes a little contest to whet the appetite and keep a bit of interest in it all.  It's all a bit of craic and hopefully will be enjoyable for all contestants. 

Easiest way to enter will be to quote the second post in this thread, with your pick in bold, or delete the other three names in the bowl. 

Any joker who decides to list his/her picks in a different order to the bowls (that is 1-8) will not have the entry posted.

Contestants will pick 1 team from each of the 8 bowls below.  Those 8 will be your teams for the entire competition. 

Contestants will also predict who beats who in the Final.

Thread will be locked on Friday 18 Nov at midnight.  Results will be updated after all teams have play each round.

The Bowls are ranked by FIFA rankings, more or less, and do not resemble any Groups in the World Cup and do not contain any teams in the same group.

Scoring System

Group stages (3 games):

1 point for each goal scored.
1 point for each point earned in Group play (three for a win, one for a draw, zero for a loss).

Games after group stage: 

Team that progresses gets 3 points plus 1 point per goal (penalty shoot-out goals do not count).  Team that loses gets 1 point per goal, plus 1 point if losing after extra-time or penalties.

Correctly picking the Winner gets 5 points, correctly picking the beaten finalist gets 3 points; Correctly picking both gets 10 points. 

Bowl 1:  Brazil, Belgium, Argentina, France
Bowl 2: England, Spain, Netherlands, Portugal

Bowl 3: Denmark, Germany, Croatia, Mexico
Bowl 4: Uruguay, Switzerland, USA, Senegal

Bowl 5: Poland, Iran, Serbia, Morocco
Bowl 6: Japan, Wales, South Korea, Tunisia

Bowl 7: Costa Rica, Ecuador, Australia, Cameroon
Bowl 8: Canada, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Ghana

Final prediction:

Pick one team from each bowl...you will have 8 teams to follow in the tournament.

Then predict who beats who in the final.

Thatís all.

Plenty of time to get selections made.
