        Yeah - sorry dude! Tough round to predict to be fair, I only got one point and got lucky with the last 16 bonus, otherwise I'd have been in the same boat.

          ROUND 5 UPDATE

          I was player of the round. No, I didn't cheat. Much. Spain's XG was the highest this round, clocking in at 2.94, which was higher than even England's total of 1.98, despite the Three Lions winning 4-0. Props to Cook, Ollie and myself for getting that one. Vladimir Coufal touched the ball a total of 84 times in the Czech Republic's game against Denmark, which Ollie and myself also got right. Despite many players going for Swiss or Spanish players missing a penalty in this round, no one picked the right one. Shee was top match predictor again in this round again.


          -THE TABLE-


          Prime Time is still top of the table, but it's squeaky bum time for the league leader, with me just 3 points, and Shee just behind me. A strong performance from Ollie sees has put him in contention too. For the rest, there are still a number of pre tournament bonuses to collect, so it's all to play for.





          -SCORES ON THE DOORS-


          A breakdown of your individual scores is available for your viewing pleasure. Please check your scores, doing this with a hangover wasn't my best idea:







          -OUTSTANDING BONUSES-


          Just a reminder, here are all remaining bonuses, most of which are due at the end of the tournament. According to the Euro 2020 website, there have been 135 goals scored so far, so that rules out every player, even the most goal hungry:





          ROUND 6


          Alright boys, shit is getting serious. Here are your semi final fixtures, go forth and predict. Thanks to all of you who played in round 5, and I wish you all the best in the penultimate round:

          Wednesday 7th July
          England vs Denmark (20:00, London)

          BONUS 1: Which player will score the first goal in Italy's game against Spain?

          BONUS 2: Which player will be shown a red card in this round?

          BONUS 3: Name a team who will keep a clean sheet in this round (for clarification - goals in extra time do count, but not penalty shootouts)

                    Cook, just a helping hand mate:

                    4)
                    Any bonus questions that ask for a player or team must be answered with specifically - 'no one' or ‘none’ is not a valid answer. However, for number questions, you can answer '0'. Also, there may be occasions where a player’s surname is not enough (e.g. ‘Hazard’ would not be valid answer as I would not know whether that is for Eden Hazard or his brother Thorgan Hazard, or his other brother Kylian, or even his third brother Major).
                    Feel free to edit your post.

                          ROUND 6 UPDATE

                          Your player of this penultimate round is Gooner, for being the only player to correctly guess that Federico Chiesa would be the first goalscorer in Italy's game against Spain. With only 2 games to play in this round, everyone else's scores look like binary code, with Prime Time being the only player to actually score a point in the match predictions. He extends his lead at the top of the table to, you guessed it, one point, as a result. No red cards or clean sheets in this round means that I probably need to come up with better bonuses for the final.

                          THE TABLE


                          Not a whole lot of movement before the final round. Gooner closes the gap on 4th place, but the final round will see a number of bonus questions collected, which could see a big change in the standings.




                          SCORES ON THE DOORS

                          As with previous rounds, here is a breakdown of your scores for round 6:

                          And... special omg England are in the final bonus...

                          BONUS 4: Is it fucking come lads? (for clarification, the only acceptable answers are either "Yes, it's fucking coming home you cunts" or "No, it's England, you silly soppy cunt")

                          Deadline: Sunday 11th July 2021. 19:58

                                Before I post my predictions... Shee - you're the only one who predicted that England would get this far in the pre tournament bonus questions mate. However, you simply answered "final" rather than "beaten finalists" or "winner." So, I will take your answer as beaten finalists, so you won't get the points if England win. However, this does leave you with an interesting choice. Since the bonus question 4 so eloquently alludes to England's fate, you could either guarantee yourself a bonus by answering yes, or you could go double or nothing by saying we'll balls it up. That said, I nearly decided to give you the points anyway, for being more optimistic than any of us England fans!

                                Anyway...
