Played my first game last night with my buddy. It was just the two of us so we randomly divided the teams so we each had two teams in every group. Here's our results

Group A
South Africa 6 pts
France 4 pts
Uruguay 4 pts
Mexico 3 pts

Group B
Nigeria 7 pts
South Korea 4 pts
Greece 4 pts
Argentina 1 pt

Group C
England 9 pts
Slovenia 3 pts
Algeria 3 pts
USA 3 pts

Group D
Germany 9 pts
Serbia 4 pts
Ghana 2 pts
Australia 1 pt

Group E
Cameroon 9 pts
Denmark 3 pts
Japan 2 pts
Netherlands 2 pts

Group F
New Zealand 6 pts
Slovakia 4 pts
Paraguay 4 pts
Italy 3 pts

Group G
Brazil 7 pts
Portugal 4 pts
Ivory Coast 4 pts
North Korea 1 pt

Group H
Spain 9 pts
Switzerland 6 pts
Chile 1 pt
Honduras 1 pt

Interestingly enough, we each had eight teams advance to the Round of 16. I had South Korea, England, Cameroon, Switzerland, France, Slovakia, New Zealand and Portugal. My friend had the rest, obviously.

Round of 16
South Africa 3 : South Korea 3 (South Africa wins in penalty shoot-out)
England 2 : Serbia 1
Cameroon 4 : Slovakia 1
Brazil 3 : Switzerland 0
Nigeria 2 : France 2 (France wins in penalty shoot-out)
Germany 4 : Slovenia 1
New Zealand 1 : Denmark 1 (Denmark wins in penalty shoot-out)
Spain 5 : Portugal 1

Only three of my teams advanced to the Quarter-Finals while my friend had five.

Quarter-Finals
South Africa 1: England 2
Cameroon 2 : Brazil 2 (Brazil wins in penalty shoot-out)
France 3 : Germany 4
Denmark 1 : Spain 2

England is my only team to survive to the Semi-Finals.

Semi-Finals
England 2 : Brazil 3
Germany 2 : Spain 4

3rd Place Play Off
England 2 : Germany 2 (England wins in penalty shoot-out)

Final
Brazil 3 : Spain 7

Spain wins 2010 World Cup! Spain waltzed right through the tournament, its closest games being the opening match of Group H in a close game with Switzerland but eeked out 4:3, and another close match against Denmark in the Quarter-Finals. Everything else was a blow-out.

A lot of my teams lost in PKs, but that's what happens to me in the board game, too.
