I'm torn on who to support between Croatia or Poland. I've always liked the Croats, but it would be nice to cheer on Poland as they knock out England. It is a dilemma. Whose banner shall I fly?

Congratulations Flashman. You're not as thick as I thought.

That's 21!

15 fully complete

I expect a few of the 6 will not complete in time.

I stand corrected.
Even if you have gone for a Poland vs Uruguay final, technically, your predictions are complete.

I'm sure Bruce will complete.

Pisser thought he could enter in predictions each day, despite being provided with more than adequate instructions

I will harass Roger Milla / Meat free.

That should mean 20 fully complete

Then I can zap Argo, or leave him there at the bottom of the league.

Entries can be adjusted up to the cut-off.

I got cold feet re Uruguay, so shifted north to

Brazil! (Saw them vs US in Palo Alto, July 4, 1994)

re Mexico, so far from God and so close to the US!

On paper Belgium should really be making the semis at least.

Courtois in goal
Kompany, Alderwiereld and Vertongen in the centre of defence
De Bruyne and Hazard are two of the greatest in the world right now.
Lukaku up front.

I just don't think they are a team to do it, a bit like England 10 years ago. All good individuals, no team.

^ Degreed....
I do like thier coach martinez, though only becuase he was an excellent tv commentator last WC...... Management should of told the fans to pi55 orf at everton and kept him.

Lukaku is a BEAST, ill put him out there for the golden booot, im gonna have to go back to my perdicktions and add a few goals though, lol....
(I think i need to go back and add a bunch of goals, there were some high scores last time)
Kompany is one of the best evah, a bit past his sell by date, but sometimes the old dudes show up at the WC.

I don´t think Belgium is a serious candidate. They just don´t have enough ambition to win. They play very well and very nice but you don´t win a WC just playing nice and well. Germany, Italy or Uruguay usually have really success in the WCs even playing limited.
Prost!

Nice to see someone having faith with their national team with Belgium beating us 2-0.

Although, not as deplorable as Lincoln, who has England losing to both Belgium and Colombia. Out in the last 16.
