Mike (Jul 2 '19): We have some amazingly impressive brackets at the top of this pool. Now down to four teams! Mike (Jun 26 '19): Took me until late last night to realize I should x out the team that didn't qualify for the knockout round. Okay, that is done. On the quarter-finals! Mike (Jun 24 '19): Let me find your entry and take a look pacepanther (Jun 23 '19): I am confused. I correctly picked Spain to finish 2nd in Group B and I picked USA to finish 1st in Group F. Spain and USA are playing today in the knockout round. Why do my picks show both teams advancing to the Quarter Finals? Inconceivable! pacepanther (Jun 20 '19): Thailand vs Chile was pure drama. Go Nigeria Go! pacepanther (Jun 20 '19): Thailand vs Chile was pure drama. Go Nigeria Go! Mike (Jun 20 '19): Thanks pacepanther. Neat website. pacepanther (Jun 19 '19): Sportsclubstats is a good source for checking up on your favourite teams Looks like Nigeria needs a lot of help! http://www.sportsclubstats.com/FIFA/f/WomensWorldCup.html Mike (Jun 15 '19): It is a little tough to figure out with the 3rd place finishers but I believe France, Germany, England, Netherlands and Canada have all guaranteed a spot in the Round of 16, so I gave out the minimum points earned for each of those teams. I will update again when the group standings are final. Mike (Jun 13 '19): I thought I might have some points to hand out for each of France and Germany's 2-0 records, but they still are not guaranteed to go to the knockout round (as unlikely as that seems). So, we'll wait until there is certainty teams advance to the Round of 16. Mike (Jun 11 '19): My Australia to the final four takes a hit and worried about Canada scoring enough goals. Mike (Jun 7 '19): Closing in on 600 entries. 3 hours to kickoff! Mike (Jun 6 '19): Actually looks like we are down to only 400 now after I removed some #2 and #3 entries. Limit 1 entry per person in this pool. Mike (Jun 6 '19): 1 day! And we might top 500 entries here, which is pretty cool. Mike (Jun 5 '19): 2 days! Mike (Jun 3 '19): Looking for some help to fill in your bracket? Here are the current world team rankings: https://www.fifa.com/fifa-world-ranking/ranking-table/women/ Mike (May 25 '19): Hate to announce this but it seems we had a small mistake with the matchups in the original bracket table. That is corrected now, but if you click "Edit Picks" you might notice some blank spots as a result. Please check your bracket and update prior to the June 7th deadline. Sorry for the error! Mike (May 24 '19): 2 weeks!

Fill in the bracket by picking all teams that qualify for the knockout round based on their group stage standings, and pick the winner of each knockout round game all the way to the World Cup Final.
You will earn points for selecting the correct team for each round of the bracket. Points are awarded according to the following tables:
Knockout Round Qualifiers (Based on Group Standings)
Group 2nd place
Group 3rd place
Finish as predicted
Points are only awarded for teams that qualify for the knockout round.
For an example of the above points table, if you pick France to win Group A and they win Group A, then you earn 5 points for that pick. Alternatively,
if you pick France to win Group A and they do not win the group, but qualify for the knockout round, then you earn 3 points.
If you pick Spain to finish second in Group B and they finish second in the group, then you earn 4 points for that pick. Alternatively,
if you pick Spain to finish second in Group B and they do not finish second in the group, but qualify for the knockout round, then you earn 2 points.

Each team that you pick to win a particular match does not need to be playing the team you predicted them to face for you to score points for the win.
