The Football (soccer) World Cup in Brazil starts in a week.
It's time to play another A2K Fantasy Game.

The simple rules of the game:

1. Each participant chooses 5 footballers who will play in Brazil 2014 and orders them from 1 to 5.

2. Every goal scored from this players will mean points to the participant. 5 points for player number 1; 4 points for player number 2; 3 points for player number 3; 2 points for player number 4 and 1 point for player number 5.

3. The game will be held in 3 stages:

Stage 1: group rounds - first 48 games
Stage 2: second round and quarter finals - 12 games
Stage 3: semi-finals, game for 3rd place and final - 4 games

4. The list of strikers for Stage 1, and their order, can be changed for Stage 2
and, again, for Stage 3. If a new list is not provided before a stage kick-off, the original list will be taken as confirmed for that stage.

5. The winner is the participant who scores the most points.

6. There will be 4 winners. One for each stage and one for the total tournament.

7. Tiebreak system:
If two or more players end a stage or the tournament with the same number of points, the tie break will follow this criteria:
I. The participant whose strikers scored more goals, regardless of the order in the list.
II. The participant whose strikers scored more headers (goals with the head).
III. The participant whose strikers scored less goals from penalty kicks. (the eleven step PK).

8. No player can duplicate a previous poster team. There should be at least one difference (in the order or in the list itself).


Prizes:
Stage winners: Virtual gold medal
Tournament winner: Virtual FIFA Cup
Tournament runner-up: Virtual silver cup.

I don't mind if there is only 3 of us.
But I'd love to have some other players in this game.

@fbaezer,
Still reading. First I read the 2010 thread to get my mind in gear for making the choices.

2. Sergio Aguero -- Argentina
3. Luis Suarez -- Uruguay
4. Daniel Sturridge -- England
5. Mario Mandzukic -- Croatia

@lmur,
That was tough luck in your office sweep.
But they'll defeat Honduras.

I know more right now on all this than I did a few hours ago, including that a favorite just hurt his ankle in a friendly game.
Now to close my eyes and throw darts (always with the drama...)

@fbaezer,
There' a booby prize for worst performer. So not even in the running for that!
Three Irishmen so far (we've claimed George). And osso is part-Irish of course as well as being part-Martian.

Go ahead, with Balotelli, osso. You need an Italian or it won't be you.

Of course, only the last submission from every player is valid. There are no multiple entries.
