Italy and France (the finalists in 2006) are both out before the WC has even started properly :rofl_2:.

Very WTAesque.

Pretty good start then I would say and I'm still very happy with my 2 finalists although with how England finished I now can't have both England and Argentina into the Semi Finals!

Standings thru Monday

1   conchita (ESP)   23
2   falcon (IND)   23
3   Chris (ENG)   23
4   Borovnia (ESP)   21
5   Babble (USA)   18
6   Luggy (SRB)   18
7   Bazcovic (NED)   18
8   Brad (USA)   18
9   kicker (ENG)   17
10   BGT (USA)   16

Things have gotten a little bit tighter.  ;-()

With Paraguay's win, 4 of the 5 South American teams that began the WC have advanced to the final 8, and the only team that didn't advance, was put out by another South American team. And with Paraguay's win, we have a shakeup atop the table as falcon is the only one to advance Paraguay to the QF.

Standings thru Tuesday


1   falcon (IND)   27
2   conchita (ESP)   25
3   Chris (ENG)   25
4   Borovnia (ESP)   23
5   Babble (USA)   20
6   Bazcovic (NED)   20

You and Bazcovic are starting to make the rest of us look silly. :applause: :applause:
I haven't watched any of Uruguay, but if they win, he'll sneak ahead of you. But we've all now seen how things tighten up once your pick goes out, so there's a lot of football to be played!
