Hopefully FIFA will ensure it's fixed enough that Russia actually win the whole thing.

Sorry for not sending my entry yet. I'll get on it tonight when I get back from work. 

Although after having drawn Sweden I should quit now :D (I won't though)

I've convinced myself that Australia won't score, so I'm eagerly awaiting my winnings.

Think Portugal are fastest goal aren't they? Ronaldo in the 4th minute in both games he's played.

Japan's goal is credited at 6 mins. The penalty and sending off was given after 3 mins. Ronaldo scored in the 4th minute twice or am I missing something :confused:

Look who you've quoted, could he have any interest in Japan having the fastest goal?

Have seen you sent something DP - was that to Paypal?

Late reply... I transferred it via bank transfer. Had your details saved from the last time you ran one of these :D

Oh wonderful, they make up for the penalty loss slightly then!

Does anyone have the current stats for the following as I can't seem to find a stat site at all :(

Last place finish (Lowest points & GD) - I think this has been decided hasn't it?
Least Goals conceded - This may have been decided too, if it hasn't who is leading and who still has a chance of winning?
Fastest goal scored - Who is leading this and what time was the goal scored?
Most yellow cards during tournament - Who is leading this and how many cards do the remaining 4 teams in the tournament have?

Iirc Lowest points was Panama.

Lowest Goals conceded is a farce imo because Uruguay conceded 0 in the group's but 3 in the knockouts. Iran and Peru conceded 2 each in the group's but never made the knockouts much like other teams that conceded 1 in the group's but have then gone on to concede more in the knockouts. So I will leave @Readingfanman to clarify that one :D

Fastest Goal so far is Denmark's first minute goal last Sunday I believe.

Card details here (Argentina  & Panama lead with 11 Yellows each, Croatia and France have 8 each, Belgium on 7 & England on 5):  https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/world-cup-2018/fairnesstabelle/pokalwettbewerb/WM18/saison_id/2017/plus/1

Lowest goals should never have been a money winner tbf unless it was for group stage only, top scorers would have been a better option for sure or even most goals conceded but it can't be changed now, Iran and Peru win it then due to the fact they played less games :D

Would averaging it out over minutes played not work?

It's not really fair on those who are due to win money though is it?

I didn't even notice it as I was sure top team scorers were a prize but it really should've been flagged early on to be eligible for change not once the outcome has been decided...

France :cool: lots of cards for them in the Final now please (where they lose to England obviously)   

Denmark won the least goals conceded ? conceded 2 along with Iran & Peru but played an extra game.

Croatia top of the cards table now, getting 4 cards in the game against Russia. 

I should've simply just clicked the link rather than do maths, miss out games and get it completely wrong shouldn't I? :(

Correct. Maybe if I'd thought about it pre tournament, I would have done it over average minutes or something. But I didn't. So we won't.

i would say conceding 2 goals over 4 games is better than 2 over 3 but my denmark-coloured glasses might be tinting that. ;)

You're correct that it is better however that wasn't the stipulation for the payout, least goals conceded is a tie regardless of how many more games a team has played  and what coloured glasses you're wearing :p
