Ok, so here's the deal. I thought it would be fun to make a thread where we can bet on which teams win and by how much, and than after the world cup declare the one who got most matches right the winner.

I have made a point system where the one with the most points win. It works as follows:

Guessed the right winner = 1 point

Guessed the right winner and guessed the correct score = 2 points

So you can get 2 points max per game

I will update the OP with the names of users and their scores. I will also update it on which match is next.

As always, no backsies!

May the best man (or woman) win!

Sounds like a fun thread. I don't follow football enough to bet on the outcome but I will keep an eye out for the comments here =P

@korvus: Stop that for God's sake P ! Just give out a couple of arbitrary numbers , like Deelman said it's just meant for fun, no one's coming all the way to Holland to you to claim their prize from you if you mis-predict a game !

3-1 Netherlands, I think the Aussies are good enough to get goal from a set piece.

2-1 Spain.
