Go go Croatia 1-0
Lots of key teams eliminated today
With only one team left in I suspect @Dogbert may not be in the lead too much longer
And with England playing Germany on Tuesday either @jpwebster or @Northantslad will have all four picks eliminated shortly.
Now we just need is France to lose tomorrow...
It's been a high scoring competition, the last Euros averaged bout 2.1 goals per game, we're current at over 2.8, which makes a big difference to the scores. Normally you expect the knockout games to be quite close and low scoring, but 14 goals in two games somewhat ruins that pattern.Takes the goal count up to 118 after yesterday's games. Didn't half shoot up.
It is mathematically possible, if Czech Republic v Denmark was a 0-0 draw and Denmark win on penalties, then get knocked out without scoring in the semi-final. Also the Belgians would need to do well.
Yep, if Denmark win on penalties at 0-0 they get 10 points for going through which means @emmaemma will be on the same points at you.It is mathematically possible, if Czech Republic v Denmark was a 0-0 draw and Denmark win on penalties, then get knocked out without scoring in the semi-final.

This has been a lot of fun. Thanks for organising it.
Yes certainly, I've enjoyed it.Yep, if Denmark win on penalties at 0-0 they get 10 points for going through which means @emmaemma will be on the same points at you.
Regardless what happens to Belgium, then you both have the same points total, so it comes down to goal prediction.
You said 110, emmaemma 139, current tally is 123, which puts you 13 and 16 away respectively. If there are 2 or more goals scored in the remaining competition, emmaemma will be the closest. It's hard to imagine we'll have 7 games of football to play and only 1 or less goals scored.
But, you could all be outflanked if Belgium fall and England or Italy storm through to the final and win... three more wins could be worth 35 points or more, so still plenty of time for some entrants.
And with the right results even Rando could end up mid-table, although I think that's unlikely.
I take it you'd be up for a similar game for next year's World Cup then?
They were easy to select, but both went out in the first knockout stage!Cheers. If I do it again I think I will start with the pots again, but might rebalance them based on Fifa rankings... France and Portugal were too easy to select this time from pots 2 and 3.
Yes. It's a simple excel workbook.They were easy to select, but both went out in the first knockout stage!
How do you manage the table? Is it an excel workbook?
