Many, many people’s favourite’s, Germany, join the fray today when they take on Ukraine in the evening.
The first match of the day has really split opinion among our players – six Turkey wins and five Croatia wins suggest that maybe the 11 draw predictions were because people didn’t really know what to do! Our top two, Alex and Martin have both gone with a draw.
The teatime match, sees the appearance of the third Home Nations team – Northern Ireland in their first group tie against Poland. Nobody has predicted a draw and only four people have predicted a Northern Ireland win – Dan, Jemma, Sarah and Simon. Six people have predicted that Poland will win by scoring at least three goals.
And then, in the evening, the Germans arrive with all their ruthless tournament efficiency when they show Ukraine how it’s done! Shaun bucks the trend once again, being one of only two people not to predict a German victory. This time he and the reigning SPAGames Premier Predictions Champion (Dave) have plumped for 1-1 draws.
As an aside, 16 of our 22 players have selected Germany as their pot one team, clearly showing they are the overwhelming favourite’s among SPAGames players.
The Day – Hardly a Goalfest!
Croatia kicked the day off with a 1-0 win against Turkey. Just five people scored any points from that match, with most predicting a draw. Dan and Woy both secured a maximum three points from that game.
Next up were Poland and Northern Ireland. This was another 1-0 victory, this time for Poland. For this one, three people scored maximum points – Sharon, Rachel and Matt.
“Whoop, whoop – a correct score for me… I’m so pleased I’ve got one correct, even if I don’t get anymore!”
Sharon after securing her first exact of the tournament.
Finally, it was the turn of the current World Champions, Germany. Their slender 1-0 lead going in to injury time would have netted nobody three points. But then came on Schweinsteiger to bury a cracking half-volley to secure seven people a maximum three points.
