After the round of 16:
3 points were awarded for each correct pick in this round.
Chall rocked in this round, getting 7 out of 8 picks correct! However, Thomas is still top, after calling 6 games correctly, as did Bob, Ricardipus and I.
MadHatter didn't make any picks. Perhaps despondent at still being behind her after the first four games, Massimo didn't make any picks for the second set of four games.
The quarter finals are up next! 5 points per correct pick in the quarters, but the match-ups are getting so difficult to call. Holland-Brazil, FFS! And Germany-Argentina! We don't seem to be able to make our selections just yet, but I'm sure we'll get an email soon telling us that the next round is open!
Friday, 9:15am PST: here are everyone's picks!
