Quarterfinals complete (the result of Russia vs Croatia outstanding), 12 possible points (3 points per correct Quarterfinals match winner) in this round. Points listed below are total points so far.
Standings after the Quarterfinals:
1) TheBigAwesome: 26 points
2) @renoskier: 25 points
3) @ClevelandBrown: 22 points
4) @Old_SD_Dude: 20 points
5) @GOUNMLOBOS: 15 points
renoskier, Old_SD_Dude, and GOUNMLOBOS have busted out their brackets so the three will finish with the listed total point totals. ClevelandBrown and myself have busted out of the World Cup Final match, so for the purposes of this Challenge, the Semifinal match between France and Belgium will be a de facto Championship Match.
If France wins: I will be the 2018 FIFA World Cup Challenge winner, renoskier will finish in 2nd place, ClevelandBrown in 3rd, Old_SD_Dude and GOUNMLOBOS in 4th and 5th, respectively.
If Belgium wins: ClevelandBrown and I will be the 2018 FIFA World Cup Challenge co-Champions, renoskier will finish in 3rd place, and Old_SD_Dude and GOUNMLOBOS in 4th and 5th, respectively.
