    Ok, looks like our final list of people involved will be:

    Bon
    Stanny
    Aegon
    Jeterpool
    Buddha
    Local Rules
    Bremsstrahlung
    pv4 (he doesn't get a say, he's in)
    Hunter403
    Frodo
    380
    plague

    I'll sort out the 32 teams in to their current world rankings, and then do the draw so that everyone will get a top 16 country, and a bottom 16 country..
    Will get on to it some time today. Good luck all!

    Nothing will make me prouder than cheering on my Danes to destroy the gypo and his army of sycophants.

    Also, is there a prize if someones team has a heart attack mid game? No?

    Too soon?

    I forgot Qatar got to play at the world cup by default. Technically they've just proved that you can buy a spot at the world cup without ever earning one. Lmao. Corrupt pricks.

    Pretty sure Qatar are the first host nation to lose the opening game of a world cup. Everyone thought they'd paid Equador for a 1-0 win but must have bet big against themselves instead. Maybe they are as good at gambling as they are sweeping dead bodies under stadium foundations.


    Congrats Buddha.
