Week One - Results.
The scores that count.
The key games from Week One brought few surprises, but the dubious refereeing decisions in the opener, Wayne Rooney's missed goal opportunity and the last minute winner from Switzerland all impacted on the final results in Week One of our World Cup challenge.
The results were:
- Brazil 3 v Croatia 1
- England 1 v Italy 2
- Switzerland 2 v Ecuador 1
Tie Break answer - fastest goal in the above 3 games was scored in the 11 minute by Marcelo of Croatia.
After all the results were reveiwed the winner of the first week predictions was Paul Monaco from Focus Independent Insurance Consultants.
Amazingly Paul got the full 18 points will all winners and scores correct. He was not the only one to do so but won by predicting the closest Fastest Goal Tiebreak time and therefore took the first weeks prize.
Congratulations to Paul and good luck to everyone in Week Two.
Don't forget your predictions for Week Two need to be in by the 19th June.
