Week Three - Results.
The scores that count.
A breathtaking game started the last 16 matches with
Brazil narrowly beating Chile on penalties. Desperately unlucky Chile hit the woodwork twice before being eliminated from the competition.
Columbia were too strong for Uruguay who lacked "bite" in their attack without the missing Suarez!
Finally the Netherlands eventually came out winners against a brave Mexico team getting a late winner to go through to the quarter finals.
The results were:
- Brazil 1 v Chile 1 (Brazil go through on penalties)
- Colombia 2 v Uruguay 0
- Netherlands 2 v Mexico 1
Tie Break answer - Predict the total number of yellow cards in the above 3 games - 13
After all the results were reveiwed the winner of the second week predictions wasNick Keast of Barry Fenton Insurance who scored 15 points but won by predicting the closest correct number of yellow cards in the tie break question.
Congratulations to Nick and good luck to everyone in Week Three.
Don't forget your predictions for Week Four need to be in before the start of the first semi final on the 8th July.
