(i) Name the 2 teams from each group that qualify - 3pts a team
(ii) Name the winners, runner up, 3rd and 4th places, 10, 8, 6, 4 pts respectively.
There were 40 people who entered and after the Prelim the top looks like this
1. Leader on 39pts: Jamie Sweet
2. Joint 2nd on 36pts: Brett Jonathan, David Clement, Davie Turner
3. Joint 5th on 33pts: James Stuart, Jimmy Hacking, Erik Dols, Eugene Ruane, Steve Kidd, Liam Reilly, Kirk McArdle, Ray Robinson, Dan Walshe, Peter Warren, Ben Jones, Nic Doyle, Sean Keigher
As there are also another 11 people on 30pts so it’s still all to play for !
Current wooden spoonist is Alan Noon with 15pts and with North Korea, Greece and New Zealand in his final 4... I don’t think he’ll move off it – but with USA he still has a chance for a place.
Predictions for the Winner in order are Spain (14 votes), Brazil (9), England (7), and Argentina (6)

In my defence, I did pick them before Baines got dropped. I think he could have made the difference out there!

"I can see a lot of the African teams doing well. I actually forcast Australia not to make it out of the group but have to go with heart on that verdict. Portugal are the big losers, going home early, as will England in the round of 16, no matter who they play. I can see the USA being top of Group 3, while some groups should get the goal tally up."
With one exception, I was right.
