Dear all

I ran a game (just for fun) for the Euro's last year, won by @The Landlord ,here is an updated version for the World Cup.

It's free to enter, and there will be a small (as yet undetermined) prize for the winner.

To enter, pick one team from each of the four pots listed below that you think will win the most games/score the most goals and also state how many goals you predict will be scored in the entire competition (64 games). The four pots are based on Fifa rankings and a bit of jiggery pokery on my part.

Closing date for entries is kick-off of the first match on Sunday 20th November.

To enter post your four teams and your predicted number of goals.

I.e. Argentina, Wales, Serbia, Canada, 200

Any questions, let me know.

Germany

I think Ecuador are a canny call. They could well progress beyond the group games given the draw.

Nearly picked them myself, but think Qatar's home advantage (and temperature experience) may just give them the edge.

169 goals.
That's a very similar selection to 62tucker - same teams but 168 goals. You can keep it like that if you want, or let me know if you want to shuffle it at all

I don't think having a lot of football knowledge is a big factor here. But let's see how it goes.
