Yay! Finally managed to get off the mark in our Prediction League after the Spain 3-3 Portugal game (my 1-1 prediction was enough to earn me a point, at least! ) ..could've been so much better, but the two late winners in the earlier matches ruined both of my guesses (I had both of those down as 1-1 draws as well! Dang!)

Looks like @OorWullie is leading the way so far! Early days, but I'm sure you'll be delighted with that start! ..and every single one of us have gone for a France win vs. Australia today - currently 0-0 at half time, so looks like we'll all be dropping points as things stand! Haha!

A big 3 points in the bag for me and @NaviAndMii I am indeed delighted with my start Gutted about last night though, fell asleep during the Iran v Morocco match and didn't wake up until an hour or 2 after Spain v Portugal finished. I had a feeling it was going to be a cracker, hence my 2v2 prediction. When I woke up I went to the BBC Football website sensing I'd missed a belter. When I saw the 3v3 scoreline I was really mad at myself, why didn't I set an alarm! Reading today pundits calling it one of the most memorable WC matches ever has just rubbed even more salt into my wounds. Gutted! It's the Thai commentary, Thai build up and Thai post match analysis it's brutal. Sending me to sleep.

@OorWullie Yeah, we both got that one bang on! Nice! ..you're starting to open up a little gap for yourself at the top now! Haha! (..the result seemed a little harsh on Australia - but it massively helped me in the prediciton league, so I can't complain! )

Sucks that you missed the Spain v Portugal match ..to be honest, even with decent commentary/pundits (and the games being broadcast at more reasonable times in this part of the world) it was a struggle to stay awake during the previous two matches! ..mind-numbingly dull! ..still, at least it was only a group match - plenty more thrills and spills to come, I'm sure!

I've gone against the grain in this next game - backing Iceland to earn a point against Argentina (..as an Englishman, I know only too well what the Icelanders can do on their day! Haha!) ..hope it's a good one!

I was thinking about Iceland perhaps causing a shock too and if this fixture had happened to take place a couple of weeks ago I'd have probably gone for a draw.I kind of fancy Argentina to win the whole thing though. A defeat to Iceland and it would be tough for them to come back. With Nigeria and Croatia in there too, it's a tough group.

I've gone for 3v1 in the end but it's not a confident pick.

An Argentina v Portugal, Messi v Ronaldo final would be something else.

That was absolutely brilliant.What a performance and result! Plucky little Iceland are living the dream.

Just wish I'd stuck with my original feeling that there would be a shock. 1v1 would have been what I went for too. I did pick them as the team I would be supporting though. Even more reason I should have backed them then.

English commentator described the Messi penalty saved by 'the hand of cod' referencing Maradonna's hand of God and Iceland's main export lol.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@OorWullie Oh - yes, please! A Messi vs Ronaldo final would be really, really special! ..I've got a feeling that Argentina aren't going to get out of their group though, myself - they were extremely fortunate to have even qualified and look all over the place defensively (equally though, like you, I could see them going all the way!) ..they'll certainly make for interesting viewing though, that's for sure!)

I'm on a roll with my predictions at the moment - second 'perfect' guess of the day! ..enough to see me rise from 15th to 3rd! (..might screenshot that - could be about as good as it gets for me! Haha!)

For some reason, everyone at work seems to get pretty upset with me whenever I make fun about England loosing as we always do. I guess football is a touchy subject. Who knew?

@OorWullie No, we live on the other dude of Moscow, but there are quite a few icelandians living in the hotel nearby. And yes - they were just ecstatic)

I see that I'm the only one predicting a shock in the Germany v Mexico. I've gone for a 2v2 draw.It was the first result that popped into my head so I went with it. The app actually asked me "Are you sure? That's quite an upset!".

Only two predicting victory for Costa Rica against Serbia. I picked a draw but I believe that they have the potential to upset bigger teams. 4 years ago they were very good defensively using 5 defenders (of course the wing backs would rush forward when attacking) and even quality teams has trouble to break through. Seems like they are still using similar system but the players are 4 years older which can be good or bad

Been close with the correct outcome for a few matches but yet to get an exact score prediction correct. Maybe today will be my day ☺️

Really looking forward to seeing GERMANY and BRAZIL make their bow in WC2018.

Managed to do okish so far in the WC Fantasy Football league. Although expect @Retro_J to score big in the next two days. All his players are from GERMANY, BRAZIL, BELGIUM and ENGLAND. All yet too play of course.

Managed to record and watch every game so far. Although fatigue started to win out late, late last night as I fell asleep during the PERU Vs. DENMARK game despite it being very entertaining. CROATIA vs. NIGERIA saw me nod off without reprieve though. Had to revert to the highlights to catch-up, lol!

With every single one of us going for a Brazil win in the next match, it looks certain that @Fafounet will be our new overnight leader in the Prediction League!

I am surprised to see Germany lose their first match. Despite knowing so little about football, it still amazes me that Mexico beat them.

Wow, I was starting to worry England really were going to be poor tonight. Only just scored the second goal right towards the end of the game.

For me Argentinas performance was most suprising and not in the good way

I'm enjoying my lofty position of third overall at the moment. No doubt that won't last. @Fafounet looking great at the top, 24 exact results!
