Above are the World Cup fields.  All set.  So pick two teams in each group you think will come out and survive to make it to round 2.

Group A  Russia and Egypt  (changed my mind on this one but this one counts)

Group B  Spain and Portugal

Group C  France and Denmark

Group D  Argentina ( very reluctantly) and Croatia

Group E Brazil and Switzerland

Group F Mexico and Germany

Group G England  and Belgium

Group H Columbia and Poland

 

Round 2 we make more and get 1 point for each correct in round 1

Lets pick the champion now.  25 points for correct champion

My pick is England

Wow.   Gutsy picking Russia.  I say no shot.  I am more afraid of our other member and his Belgium pick. I think he is on to something with Belgium.  But I am going England.  I will also cheer for Mexico.  Come on Sean. Get in on this

You say no shot, but look at what’s happening worldwide with Russia behind it. Don’t put anything past them....

That could change once the group stages are over, everything is an unknown until  the tournament is underway. All my current choices are based on past form (and a little national pride) so at the moment the prediction for Russia still stands, home advantage has been a factor in the past.

I am really disappointed in the lack of enthusiasm and the sheer stubborn behavior of some members that could take 3 minutes of their "precious time" and fill out a bloody bracket.  Its just ridiculous

Above is a bracket that might make things easier.  If you still want in we will extend until kickoff of first game tomorrow.  All will be awarded a win for Russia today if a new member joins.  Last chance.  And thanks to those that are in to participate in this, the only true World championship of team sports
