The WTAWorld Soccer World Championships Prediction Game

The opening match of the World Cup soccer is less than 2 months away, the first prediction games are already appearing, so I thought it was time for our very own prediction game.
If you think you know everything about soccer, or you want to earn some vCash, here is your place to be!

The general idea
Basically, it's very simpel. You can download the match schedule from the attachment. Fill in a result for every match, and the total amount of goals that you think will be scored in this tournament. You can send the filled in match schedule to me by email or PM, or post it in this thread.
Then you donate $10 of vCash to the user WCPrediction. That is an account I made especially for this game, to be able to separate my own vcash from the cash used for this game.
You can only participate if you've filled in a result for each match, the total numer of goals that you think will be scored, and donated your $10. Half filled in match schedules will not be in the game.

The points system
The preliminary rounds
1 point for the correct outcome of the match (team A wins, team B wins, or they draw)
1 point for the correct number of goals by team A
1 point for the correct number of goals by team B
(that makes a maximum of 3 points per match)

For example:
You predict Germany to beat Costa Rica 2-0
* if that is the correct score you receive 3 points
* if Germany wins 3-1 you get 1 point
* if Germany wins 1-0 you get 2 points
* if the result is 0-0 you get 1 point, however if the result is 1-1 you don't get any points
* if Costa Rica wins, you get no points

The round of 16 and Quarterfinals
1 point for each correct team
1 point for the correct outcome of the match
1 point for the correct number of goals by team A
1 point for the correct numer of goals by team B
(that makes a maximum of 5 points per match)

For example:
You predict the first match in the round of 16 to be Germany - England, result: 0-1
* The match is Germany - Sweden, the result is 0-1; you get 4 points
* The match is Germany - England, the result is 1-0; you get 2 points
That should be clear I think.

The semifinals, 'Loser final' and Final
2 points for each correct team
1 point for the correct outcome of the match
1 point for the correct number of goals by team A
1 point for the correct numer of goals by team B
(that makes a maximum of 7 points per match)

(the example would be the same as for the round of 16 and quarterfinals, except that there are more points to earn)

The total number of goals
This is used when 2 people end with the same number of posts; the person closest to predicting the total number of goals wins.

The winnings
As I said, the winnings will consist of vCash
The Winner wins 60% of the total prizepot
The second place gets you 25% of the prizepot
The third place gets you 15% of the prizepot

Deadline
The deadline for everybody who wants to take a chance is the 5th of June, 6pm CET.


Have fun predicting and good luck!
I will bump this thread from time to time to give everyone a chance

Only 1st, 2nd and 3rd get their hands on some vCash? Pfft. Not a big chance I can win some virtual money.

When we donate, must we calculate the tax and donate accordingly?
And remind me when it's almost the opening match.

Okay.
And okay too.

Oh you're supposed to reply with the WCPrediction account. You're just confusing everyone like this.

You are allowed to spread you chances. So let's say predicting other Quarterfinalists then the ones based on your first round scores.
