That's it for me, tho. I've got Spain down to win it so I can't get any more points.

Although, interestingly, the algorithm that auto-populated the knock out categories had France winning and I switched them out for Spain. The lesson being never let my brain do what a computer can do for me.

me too. I had France going down to Spain in the final. In reality it was motivated by wishful thinking. I couldn't bring myself to put France down as winners

This entire time I thought it was first goal of the first game. No idea why. Was it maybe that last competition?

I have it at 9 minutes.

There was a box at the bottom of the Group Stage section to enter it.

I don't know if it's too late.

There is a message board on the site to ask questions, not sure how quick responses are (Grecian is spamming it as he thinks we are all bin meanies)

Not even sure how much points it adds.

Anyway, it's a bit of a shot in the dark getting the exact minute.
.

Which will be about 5 minutes after kick off, to France.

Sorry Bundes

It's not too late to add and it scores you 6 points if you're right.

Snow is really shared 12th, because ## 12 and 13 have the same number of points, and I don't know why it's being ordered this way.
