    Cheers dude. Yes, that was my understanding too - although some teams were guaranteed 3rd, a complete disaster in the last game could knock them out altogether. Not a fan either, kinda renders the group stages pointless, but it is what it is.

      ROUND 3 UPDATE

      That brings the group stages to a close gentlemen. Player of the round is Prime Time, scoring a number of correct match predictions and nailing both bonuses, giving him the lead at the top of the table. Shee was top match predictor, but, as you all know by now, it's all about them bonerific bonuses. Speaking of which, Portugal, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Ukraine are your 3rd placed teams who qualified, so points go to those of you who picked the Swiss and the Portuguese. Prime Time and nony got the second bonus, successfully predicting that Cristante and Werner would feature from the bench.

      -REMAINING BONUSES-

      Write off Cristiano Ronaldo at your peril. The record breaker helped himself to 5 goals in the group stages, which even the most optimistic among you didn't get. Shame - since I was giving away 2 Ronaldo signed bottles of Coca Cola as a prize to whoever guessed the correct answer.

      France topped Group F... Just. So 5 points to those of you who went for that. Only 2 teams finished the group stages with 0 points - Turkey and North Macedonia. Points to Sheepy and myself for pessimistically writing off North Macedonia as shite. With that in mind, here is your updated table:

                All predictions, even in the knock-out rounds in the cup, are for the end of regular time. You get nothing for the score at the end of 120 minutes, or predicting who'll win a shootout. However, this is the sort of thing that might comprise a bonus question.

                      ROUND 4 UPDATE

                      Well, hot shit in a ditch, what a round! The unpredictability of the Last 16 meant for some pretty low scores, but it does mean the table is looking pretty interesting. Shee was player of the round, mainly thanks to correctly writing off Memphis Depay, and The Netherlands, as shite, and for getting the Key Passes bonus. Speaking of which, a number of players all recorded 4 key passes in this round, which was the highest number. Those creative geniuses happened to be Marco Veratti, Lorenzo Insigne, Ferran Torres, Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe. Therefore, since I'm in such a good mood because it's fucking coming home lads, I will give the points to anyone who said Pogba. Weirdly, the only match that went to penalties was France vs Switzerland, which obviously no one predicted.

                      -REMAINING BONUSES-

                      There was one pre tournament bonus question up for grabs in this round. Props to myself, nony and Prime Time for correctly guessing that Sweden, Wales and Austria would be eliminated in the round of 16 respectively. England's progress is still ongoing, but, since it's fucking coming home lads, that one won't be called in for a while.

                      -THE TABLE-

                      Prime Time is still top of the table, but Shee has closed the gap somewhat and moved into second place. Me and Ollie make up the rest of the top 4, with Gooner not that far behind in 5th. Nony, Cook, Maz and Sheep take up the rest of the spots. Oh, you wanted proof? Here it is boys:

                      ROUND 5

                      Everything could turn on a dime in Round 5. There are 3 bonus questions up for grabs, and the unpredictable nature of the tournament means you could see yourself fly up the table in no time. The only thing we can say with any certainty though, is the fact that it's fucking come home lads. Thanks to all of you who played in Round 4, and the best of luck to you for Round 5:
