World Cup Predictions 2014 Reminder

 

Amid rumours that Robinson and McGuiness have been invited by Moy Park to visit the World Cup, apparently to see what a new football stadium looks like, just a reminder that there is one day left to make predictions.

After the endless dithering of recent elections and multiple winners, the ultimate “Winner Takes All” competition the football “World Cup” is almost upon us. In the same ruthless spirit let the 2014 World Cup Prediction game begin.

Below are  a series of ten questions which require ten predictions. Each, if answered correctly, will receive 10 points. The person with the most points wins the “Rules Jimmy” trophy named after Jimmy “Look Ma, Top of the World” Cagney the best two footed singer never to play in the World Cup.

For ease of reference all of the teams and the initial eight groups are listed below.  Those of you who know nothing about football  but are at home with  code cracking and conspiracy can work out the eventual winner from the  four bytes of numerical information following each team. All entries by Thursday noon 12th June please. My entry is below:

Four  Group winners:  Brazil, Spain, Argentina, Belgium
