Crucially we need a phone number in case we need to contact you and a unique email address for logging in to to check your predictions. If you enter a team and also submit an entry on behalf of someone else you will need to supply a different

GROUP STAGES SCORING
THREE points will be awarded for guessing the exact result of the game. For example, if you predict the first game to be Honduras 1 v 0 Morocco and the actual score finishes Honduras 1 v 0 Morocco you score THREE points for correctly predicting the right team to win and the correct score.
However if you predict the result to be Honduras 1 v 0 Morocco and it finishes Honduras 2 v 0 Morocco you score ONE point for the correctly predicting the right team to win but with the wrong score.
As there are no penalty shoot-outs in the Group Stages, it is possible for matches to end in a draw. If you guess the final outcome will be a draw i.e. Honduras 1 v 1 Morocco and the result is Honduras 0 v 0 Morocco you will receive one point. Of course if it finishes Honduras 1 v 1 Morocco you will be awarded THREE points for guessing the exact score and result of the match.
