    MangaHelpers World Cup 2018 Prediction League
    1. Go here - http://fcpredictor.espn.com/
    2. Click "Make Picks" to create your bracket
    3. Click "Leagues" and then click "Join League"
    4. Enter this code - 1472328-69887
    5. Finish your picks by June 14th and remember to save them.

    This system is a bit less straightforward, asking you to predict the winner of the cup, the groups, and various tiebreaker questions that are worth less points. Then you predict each match of the group stage (with even more bonus questions worth minor points). We'll also have to return to make picks when the knockout stage begins as well, so I'll be sure to remind people to do so. The winner with the most points will receive a World Cup 2018 themed badge. Also, please use your username here as the the username for your bracket.

    Who I think will leave the groups :

    Group A: Russia & Uruguay
    Group B: Portugal & Spain
    Group C: France & Denmark
    Group D: Argentina & Croatia
    Group E: Brazil & Switzerland
    Group F: Germany & Mexico
    Group G: Belgium & England
    Group H: Colombia & Poland

    France and Germany are my candidates to triumph ( so they will most likely won't even get to semi-finals :P )

    Dunno if Belgium still apply to this but they may be a dark horse of this tournament for me

    Dunno who will disappoint tbh but from countries that means a lot on the international area I can see Brazil do that :kappa << Just to be clear I could say England but I don't put them on that level tbh :heh


    Also @gnut

    Anyone know a good website for Pick 'Em that has league creation? ESPN is the only one I've found so far that offers it but it requires you picking the outcome of every fixture with a bunch of weird tiebreakers in it for bonus points. Pretty tedious. Was just looking for picking who gets out of groups and then the knockout phase... :bored

    Has the same issues that other sites have. No way to create a league to compete against friends, etc.

    Well, looks like there's no good alternatives to ESPN for some reason. Every other big site just has individual bracket competitions but no league creation. Other pool services aren't free or put a limit to 10 players, so this will have to do.

    1. Go here - http://fcpredictor.espn.com/
    2. Click "Make Picks" to create your bracket
    3. Click "Leagues" and then click "Join League"
    4. Enter this code - 1472328-69887
    5. Finish your picks by June 14th and remember to save them.

    We won't. Usually I don't think too much about friendlies, as Löw usually throws them away but those against Austria and Saudi Arabia...
    During the last to tournaments, the world champion went home after the preliminaries. I am 49% sure that we will share that fate.

    Well i won't underestimate your country's team even though they are weaker than than in previous ones.What i really like about German team is their "Never give up attitude" and "fight till the last minute " attitude.I have constantly supported Germany since 2010 even though my parents are devout Brazil fans.So i will always want Germany wins this world cup also.
