If you like tight, 1-0 results, then day Seven of the 2018 World Cup was the place for you! All three of today’s matches ended 1-0.
Firstly Portugal ensured that Morocco can’t progress past the Group Stages, despite having their final Group Match to play. Micheal Hodgson will be particularly disappointed with that – he’s the only player to have chosen Morocco as his Pot D team!
The teatime match saw Uruguay eventually see off Saudi Arabia by a single goal to nil. It was also the match that saw Sharon Higgins become the first player to reach 20 points.
Nobody in SPAGames will shed a tear over the early demise of the Saudi’s – they were not selected at all as Group Winners or as a Pot D team. Uruguay however, are the most selected Team in Pot C – they will be making an appearance in Round Two.
The final match of the day saw Spain dominate Iran with 70% possession. Every one of our players secured a single point, changing absolutely nothing in our table and leaving Sharon Higgins as our over night leader. Iran could still progress to the knockout phase with a win in their final Group Match against Portugal.
Martin Gayton scored an impressive seven points from today’s three matches. The only match he didn’t call exactly was the evening match – he had Spain to win 2-0. Regardless, he more than doubled his total score having only six points before today!
Don’t forget there’s a separate prize for the most points scored in the Group Match Predictions – take a look at our pre-tournament ‘update‘ for more info.
