To think, Germany leaving the World Cup was only yesterday, time moves quickly when the World Cup is on, apart from tomorrow when we get our first break!! Don’t forget, if you are doing badly don’t lose hope as there is a separate Knockout stage competition with a separate prize.

Mexico v Sweden

The wheels fell off the Mexico VW Beetle against Sweden, but luckily the AA were able to fix them up and they edge through to the last 16. It would have been unfortunate to see Mexico go out after their first game, but happy days. Most people were lumping Mexico in this one, but four people got the right outcome: Jon Lavercombe, Nick Hughes, Rob Doody and Rachel Meyrick.

South Korea v Germany

At 0-0 this would have been the game of the tournament. But the added time was the sweetest, with South Korea winning 2-0. The second goal was due to Neuer losing his mind. This isn’t crowing, this is about thirty years of heartache shot away – very therapeutic. Justice as well, as they have been shocking and good that better teams have gone through – they were close to getting zero points as well! Based on the last time they had a disaster, like Arnie, no doubt they will be back! Not surprisingly, no-one got this one, but David Bailey should have some spiritual points for predicting a draw.

Serbia v Brazil

Unfortunately (for me and the Serbia nation), Serbia didn’t click tonight – they certainly had their chances but were not clinical. It won’t be long until the wheels fall off the Brazil wagon – Neymar is incredibly petulant, making a meal of the slightest touch and lashing out when it is not going away. Can’t wait for his tears to flow! Seven people got this spot on in our pool.

Switzerland v Costa Rica

Didn’t watch this one, but Costa Rica can leave the tournament with their heads held high after a 2-2 draw. No-one got this one spot on, but Jason Stokes and Steve Drew were close with 1-1.

Japan v Poland

Somehow Japan have managed to qualify on account of their politeness. They offer very little and have only qualified essentially after playing ten-man Colombia for almost the full game. Senegal should have finished them off as well. Unfortunate the other game didn’t end in a draw to get some justice. Anyway, Poland managed to reclaim a shred of dignity with a 1-0 which is played at a snails pace for the last 15 minutes. You’ll miss the highlights if you blink. Ossie Fahiya and Gavin Edward were the only ones to get it spot on.

Senegal v Colombia

How quickly things change, Senegal were cruising and posing a constant threat, and Colombia an inconsistent wailing rabble. But one goal turns everything on its head and Senegal are unfortunately heading home and leaving Africa bereft of any teams in the knockout phase. Crap goal, disappointing outcome. Three Superbruers got it spot on; Jamie Pritchard, Jen Greenwood and Demon Duncan Reid.

Panama v Tunisia

Obviously missed this one after watching the riveting game on ITV1. Tunisia came back from 1-0 to triumph 2-1. Hurrah. And hurrah for eleven of us who got it spot on.

England v Belgium

A game that ultimately had friendly-feel all over it. In reality, England look to have the easier side of the draw, but their knockout record of only beating Ecuador and Belgium mean that Colombia are already planning how to handle the Spanish tippy-tappy shit. England gave the squad a run out which is nice and confirms that not many of them will being playing Tuesday. Although I hope Loftus-Cheek plays and Sterling has an injury in training. Duncan again was the only person to get the exact result – obviously held off on the prediction when he saw the tripe being served up. Chapeau!

As much as it pains me to say but performance of the round went to Ossie with 14 points. Good work fella – perhaps the Spanish air helped your predictions. In the overall competition, John Hughes takes over at the top with Deb/Lee in second and Demon Duncan into third. Get picking for the knockouts!
