I've read the rules for Uwe's Bar and I can find no overt prohibition on using it to place bets on sporting outcomes. But on the assumption that such activity would be not in keeping with the forum's value-set - I'm reticent to start a book on the world-cup results.

So - for those who have an interest in round-ball sports, what is your prediction for the winner (Croatia, or France) and the final score?

My guess: France 2-1

PS: potential prize -to be decided based on my view of FIFA's honesty (and my largess based on who wins): my old HEX-NET cable which now sadly sits unused gathering dust in my junk box (postage costs not included)

Correct, there is not.

So, uhm, what do you have that's newer or better than your HEX-NET? :confused:

Don,

Croatia is going to kick France in the nuts!

5-2

Although I don't know WTF I'm talking about here, kind of like buying a power-ball lottery ticket but I forfeit if I win to the needy! :p

Don, If you hadn't stated the options as Croatia and France... I'd have probably chosen Canada :D

I hope for them both to be disqualified and the winner of Belgium against England to be promoted to World Champion. It doesn't matter why the DSQ happens. :D

I think it will be a game of bad football and defensive play. 1-0 for the bloody French.

I didn't realize it was 20 years ago already when the country went crazy following the last win. Makes me feel old.

A good game (perhaps Croatia next year - even Australia)
