This will be simple, no knowledge of football needed.

If you want to join in, do so now.
The first draw will happen on 14th June. But if there are teams not spoken for you can join later.

Enter your name here in the traditional manner, bonus points for making your Hubname sound like a Brazilian*

Still 13 places in the draw.
Remaining teams will be drawn some time next weekend.
Some possible winners in there.

Here are the results of the 1st draw.
You will notice that everyone has a randomly selected England player (keepers excluded)
This is so you can enjoy the England games EVEN IF THEY WIN !
But it not just who might score a goal, bonus points will be awarded for tackles, shots, fouls, own goals, hilarious messed up incidents and maybe post-match interview quotes.

1  A.Brooninho_______________________Spain_________________(9 Daniel Sturridge)
2  Paolo Czefskar_____________________Belgium_______________(16 Phil Jones)
3  funko de nomadica_________________Honduras______________(2 Glen Johnson)
4  Jim______________________________Germany_______________(6 Phil Jagielka)

So obviously Fuctifanho wins the Stupid England Player prize. Unlucky R-onaldo 98 as Welbeck was technically the worst player.

With 7 of the teams still in the tournament not selected, the worst performers in Rd 1 get a second draw.
The complicated rules I am applying here are that anyone who drew the team that came bottom in their group gets a second chance. If you get a team that is not otherwise selected in this round you get a bye into the quarter finals. LUCKY !

The second phase now looks like this

Fuctifanho (BRA) beat Leckerinho (CHI) on penalties after 1-1
Dubsta da Londra (COL) beat Baldparhino (UGH) 2-0

Lornaldo (NED) v Botros Botros Gailia (MEX)
Scotpaula-ro-bear-to Carlos (COR) v Soundslikeandypele (GRE)

Ellwias (FRA) or (NIG)
Jim (not actual Jim) (GER) or (ALG)

Gortinho (boy) (ARG) vs Bulk (SWI)
Paolo Czefskar (BEL) vs Gordon Reginald Banks (USA)

The second phase now looks like this

Fuctifanho (BRA) beat Leckerinho (CHI) on penalties after 1-1
Dubsta da Londra (COL) beat Baldparhino (UGH) 2-0 by being the best team by far

Lornaldo (NED) beat Botros Botros Gailia (MEX) 2-1 by diving
Scotpaula-ro-bear-to Carlos (COR) beat Soundslikeandypele (GRE) on penalties also after 1-1

Ellwias (FRA) beat (NIG) 2-0 against the run of play
Jim (not actual Jim) (GER) beat (ALG) by brutal German efficiency 2-1

Gortinho (boy) (ARG) beat Bulk (SWI) 1-0 by waking up at the last minute
Paolo Czefskar (BEL) beat Gordon Reginald Banks (USA) 2-1 after extra time, but not enough extra time for USA to get the equaliser they deserved.

You can work out the next round if you look closely.

I'm right behind you...so I can say I lost to the eventual winner!

Plus, as your prize has to be shared with the other finalist and Jim already has all the releases...it has to be shared with the beaten semifinalist.  Right  :P
