We have a runaway. Sypher is this round's winner with 5/8 and has jumped into the lead (which is where he was way back in Round 1), with a 3 point margin back to the rest of us. Behind him the logjam continues; the next 11 players are covered by a 3 point spread.

Fifiona81 and gtho4 were the other winners. Howie72 and toocool4u collected a wooden spoon each with 1/8.

New highs: gtho4.
New lows : LeoDaVinci, ElfTwinkle (again), Dizart (again).

Brazil are out. They join Argentina, Spain and Germany on the early flights home. Four of the top five favourites to win the World Cup have failed to reach the semi-finals and, with the departure of Brazil, 9 of us (out of 17) have lost our advance pick for the winner! The four semi-finalist are:

France v Belgium
Croatia v England
World Cup semi-final appearances:
Germany 13, Brazil 11, Italy 8 and France 6

England are playing in their third-ever semi-final (previous were 1966 and 1990), Belgium their second (1986), Croatia their second (1998) and France their 6th (1958, 1982, 1986, 1998 and 2006).

Only 8 of us have a live pick for the winner. Sypher will win this if England win their second ever World Cup (1966). He's the only one with England as his or her advance pick for the winner. On the other hand, if France win the final, we'll probably have a three-way photo-finish between Sypher/PaulE/N-Bomb.

The other solo pick for the winner is toocool4u with Croatia. He will fly up the table if Croatia win this .. and it may be enough to make itanother photo for first .. and if Belgium win this it'll probably be a two-way photo between Sypher and ozz2002.

But all of this is mere speculation, as we have the semi-final round to be played mid-week plus four advance picks for the semi-finalists x4: FIFA World Cup [ 9 ] Tue 10th July.

toocool4u wins the round with 6/8 and jumps up 8 spots from 10th to equal 2nd place .. and there were four wooden spoons dished out.

Sypher's still on his lonesome out front with a margin of 4 pts, but isnow running dead with no live pick for the winner. The next six players are separated by a single point .. and the six behind them are also separated by a single point!

New highs: gtho4 (again), toocool4u, Fifiona81.
New lows : LeoDaVinci (again), wwe84, Dizart (again).

Sypher lost his live pick for the winner, but three of the six players behind him in equal 2nd place have a live pick for the winner. PaulE and N-Bomb have France and toocool4u has Croatia.

Sypher's margin is 4 pts and the advance pick is worth 5 pts (Sypher will collect 1 pt for his advance pick as England lost their semi). The winner of this comp will be decided in the last round; andwe could have a dead-heat or a triple dead-heat. Which three will finish on the podium for silver and bronze is anyone's guess.

It's all over. France are world champions for the second time.

PaulE saved his best for last, ending the comp with a perfect 8/8 towin gold. N-Bomb & Sypher dead-heated for second place, with
N-Bomb winning silver on a countback +2 vs. +1 HoF vs. WS.

We didn't require the tie-breaker. For the record, France scored 1st in the 18th minute .. LeoDaVinci was closest (he picked the 14th) followed by Howie72 (24th) and PaulE (25th).

Only three players picked France as the winner with their advance pick: Lpez, N-Bomb and PaulE.

Everybody had a win during the comp except for FussBudget and Dizart. We had 7 of 18 runners occupy first place at some time during the ten rounds.

There were two wooden spoons in the final round: dg_dave and gtho4 finished with humungous picks of 0/8. Three players went through the compo spoonless: Sypher, N-Bomb and paper_aero.

New highs: Fifiona81 (again), Lpez.
New lows : dg_dave.

The 21st FIFA World Cup final saw France collect their 2nd title. Didier Deschamps, their manager, became the third person to win the World Cup as aplayer and then as a manger (head coach). The first was Mario Zagallo (Brazil, 1958/1962 and 1970)) and Franz Beckenbauer (Germany, 1974 and 1990) was the second to achieve this feat.

Eight different countries have won the FIFA World Cup and all of them are from Europe or South America.
