    Regarding the Belgium-Italy yesterday, even though the Italians are obviously the masters of "Comedia del arte", I was extremely disgusted when the majority of (probably Belgium) "fans" boohooed an obviously very heavy injured Spinazolla. Instead of cheering and applause him as it should have been for any normal sports fan. I saw yesterday what football is at its worst.  There will never be an end to this non sense...

    Indeed. But I mentioned to Nekonishiki yesterday that it is so hard to distinguish between the real injuries and the acting... Faking injuries should be banished from football completely. If a team wanted to keep their advantage, they should use only the fair ways, like doing everything a bit slower or refraining from attacking.

    *But* - if your chain starts again from slot 1, with all regularly decided matches considered as draws, and Godango's hitherto unused slot 4 being first (and discarded because it matches your slot 1), Spain vs. Switzerland would grant you the win, won't they?

    Actually I don't think so. The normal game ends on the fifth slot which is empty for me so it is considered as a loss, so Switzerland's draw beats it. In my understanding the matches cannot rotate the way you wrote. The extra time will start with Belgium - England again (which will be D-D in the extra time) and Spain (still D) faces Denmark. At least this is how I understand the rules.

    Bowl Quarterfinals Match 3:

    Ojisan               0:0     Jejima
    (Sweden)                     (England)
    Belgium           L  Ø:Ø  L  Belgium (S1)
    Italy             W  Ø:Ø  W  Italy
    Denmark (S1)          :      England ®
    Spain (S2)        D  Ø:Ø  D  Spain
                          :   D  Switzerland
                          :      Ukraine

    Jejima's calculated risk delivered the expected 0:0 so far. It's all about England.


    Cup Quarterfinals Match 3:

    Kuma-Koma            0:0     Godango
    (Croatia)                    (Hungary)
    Belgium           L   :      England ©
    Spain             D   :      Denmark
    Switzerland       D   :   W  Italy
                          :x  L  Belgium (S1)
                          :x  D  Switzerland

    Kuma-Koma delivered some kind of reverse ganbare-lineup and needs England to lose for going into extra time (where he needs Denmark to not win in extra time).

    Edit: ....or does extra time start with Spain (W) vs. Switzerland (L) = win for Kuma-Koma? I love these rules! :-P

    Yes, it is a bit complicated, but I do like to ponder on it. If England lost, my chain would be broken only at the last slot, so extra time started on the first one. In this case Denmark could win the game for Godango if they won in the extra time. Other outcomes end up in draw which is actually the best I could achieve here.

    (Spain never will be W as the 120 min result was still D)
