France 2016 Predictions Game - Group Stage Update #3

Afternoon, boys! With yesterday thrilling conclusion to Group E and F play, we came to the end of the 13 day marathon run of group stage games at France 2016. So, it's definitely time to take a deep breath and take stock of where we are with our predictions game. As before, I'm assigning 2 points for each correct prediction at this stage and a bonus point for getting them in the right order Most of us got Groups A, C, and E correct, but Groups B, D, and F caused a good deal of lost points, given England, Spain and Portugal's poor finishes. That's also created a good deal of havoc in the bracket, so there will be lost points down the line with France, England, Germany, Spain and Italy all on the same side now.

I'm assigning 8 points for those who picked Spain's Alvaro Morata as Golden Boot, as he's joint top (with Gareth Bale) on three goals. And everyone got a point or two for picking some of the best third place teams (Slovakia, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and Portugal).

So, here are the current standings:

1. The Saint - 33 points
2. Red Devil 1FCK - 32 pts
3. Gooner71 - 29 pts
4. West Ham Rising - 26 pts
5. Blue Devil - 25 pts
-  Man Utd Rules 25 pts
-  What's Up Wheaton Simon 25 pts
8. United We Stand - 24 pts
9. Chelskilad - 23 pts
-  Someone Said - 23 pts
11. The Red Dragon - 22 pts
-  Yellows - 22 pts
