All good - I was just being facetious.

Not sure how they'll keep the air in the ball after they've cut it in half though?

It should technically be do-able although it might be a little messy because team strength and team size won't be relevant.

Here's my initial thoughts (that may have been influenced by other websites)

There are 32 teams. Everyone picks 16 teams to go through to the 2nd round, 8 to the quarterfinals, 4 to the semis, 2 to the final and one for the win. In theory the later picks should be a subset of the earlier but I'm not sure there's an easy way to enforce that

Group Stage - 1 point per correct pick
2nd round - 2 points per correct pick
Quarterfinals - 4 points per correct pick
Semifinals - 8 points per correct pick
Finals - 32 points for correct pick

If at least a half dozen people say they would play, I'll see if I can code something up.

I'll play

16 teams to go through to the 2nd round. Brazil, Croatia, Spain, Netherlands, Colombia, Cote d'Ivoire, Uruguay, Italy, Switzerland, France, Argentina, Nigeria, Germany, Ghana, Belgium, Russia.
8 teams to go through to the Quarter finals. Spain, Italy, Nigeria, Germany, Netherlands, Uruguay, Argentina, Ghana.
4 teams to go through to the Semi Finals. Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Argentina.
2 teams to the final. Germany and Argentina, Germany to win 3-1 after extra time.

I've just had a thought. Will the final be play on Monday, New Zealand time. I might have to book a day of work.

Soccer? That game where players dive randomly when someone approaches too closely?
