Cool. Might also be fun to do a pool. As there won't be many of us, we could all get, I don't know, eight teams each in the opening rounds, just to give us all something to follow if (AHEM!) our country is not in it. Or we don't care. Then it would be interesting to see who was left as we got down to the last sixteen, quarter finals etc.

Ideas for predictions:
Winners of each game
Score of each game
Number of red/yellow cards
Scorers (first/last)
Type of match (evenly matched, last minute penalty/free, shock ending, foregone conclusion, upset etc)
Stupidest mistake/worst sitter
Player(s) reaching/not reaching expected potential in match
Man of the match

and so on.

I'm guessing there would be some website that allows you to track/record predictions in some sort of data thing. So you just click the link and put your score in and it tracks it like a table.

We don't need that many, just result/score/goalscorer imo. The more stuff you add, the less likely the non football guys are to get involved.

Not sure if I know what is going on. Are you saying predict each game's results and see who wins it at the end? I dunno what having eight teams is about.

Neymar just did this btw - https://streamja.com/lWQz

Brazil look great.

Well, if there were 32 of us interested (which there aren't) we would all get one team, and someone would end up winning. As there are so few of us we could all be randomly assigned six, seven or eight teams (whatever the number of teams divided by the number of members interested in adds up to) and work it that way. Doesn't really matter if nobody wants to do it: it was just an idea. We used to do it at work, and it added a lot of interest, especially if you got some team like (back then) Iceland or Cyprus or something.

It's called a sweepstake mate, basically sport lottery, and is different to predictions so that's why I was confused.

Yeah that's it. What you said. We call them pools here.

Yeah would need 16 posters at least. Two entries per poster that way, you could do eight posters with four but that seems silly, but sweepstakes only really work if there is a prize.

Predictions would add some skill to it so more fun. I'd favour predictions, in a result/scoreline format. This is just my opinion. Let me know what you think. I have left goalscorers out because guys who don't follow might be intimidated when they don't even know who plays for who.

“Yaya Toure: 'Maybe us Africans aren't always treated the same by certain people. When you see the problems he (Pep) has often had with African players, everywhere he has been, I ask myself questions.”

“He's too intelligent to be caught. He'll never admit it (not liking Africans). But the day he picks a team with five Africans in, I promise I will send him a cake!” (France Football)
This guy is such a victim I swear.
