@oriole01, @LilSaint, @SouthCoastRed

Guys, you have until 3.00pm to table your prediction for Uruguay v France and you need to get the rest of your predictions in.

Especially you @oriole01 - you are currently in second place, two points off the lead!

The Grand Committee of the Supreme Soviet and the Council of Proletariat will have to decide.

Ok then.

The problem with posting a minute late is that even after a minute we could already tell that the result would be <insert final result here>.

Greetings comrades.

So, the quarter finals threw up more drama and tears and cries of foul, injustice and "can you have another look at the VAR"? England get a semi (along with most of the people on here) and we say farewell to Brazil and Russia, among others.

All the effort was to no avail for Uruguay, Brazil (shock), Sweden and the beloved host nation, Russia. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, none of Brazil, Argentina, Italy or Germany have made the semi-finals.

It is all to play for with France, Belgium, England and Croatia going through to the semi-finals next week.

In our table, points were hard to come by with so few games being played but Collzy remains our beloved leader but Timma has shot through the ranks of the Suhoputnye Voyska Rossiyskov Federatsii to lie second with a round win of five points. Even more impressive for the fact that three of his points came from a correct prediction of the Brazil score - be honest, how many of us saw that coming?

As a consequence, oriole01, HOORAY HENRIK and GunmaN1905 all fall one place. CFuller and PMLF (who rises a place with one point) all remain within touching distance of Collzy with DB08 and toon_84 not far behind.

Also having a great round was ArsenalFan7 who scored a very impressive four points to be our biggest mover, rising four places into mid table obscurity. He scored two points for getting the penalty shoot-out score right although he didn't predict the game to go to penalties! Honourable and equal mentions to toon_84 and Razzler who both also scored four points and rose one place each - well done all.

Meanwhile in the gulag, Crispypaul scored a point but it wasn't enough to lift him in the table and he remains second from bottom, behind LilSaint who has not entered since the group stages - the Eastern Front beckons comrade!

All the others at the bottom scored at least one point.

You scored two points for the getting the penalty result correct, even though you predicted 2-1!

@LilSaint, @SouthCoastRed - you have until 7.00pm tonight to predict the England Croatia match - or, in SouthCoastRed's case, you have the whole of half time to predict the first half and anytime after full time to predict the final result!

Greetings comrades.

Stalingrad has fallen, Moscow in ruins, broken and tattered, dreams shattered, hopes stolen, egos battered.

Well, the morning after and the hangover that comes with it. Poor old England. A tournament to remember but moments to forget, it's coming home - it is now. The highs and excitements to the lows - the regional soviets have been ordered to line up the executions to come.

Well done England, heads held high, everything to be proud of - did everything asked of them. Poor opposition? You can only beat who is in front of you, easy draw? Make the most of it and be thankful. Fine lines, tightest of margins, fractions of a second, fractions of a millimetre, bad luck and that's it.

A warm welcome to comrade Spike55455, who has joined us late, unfortunately without success in this round but like the World Cup, this is really hotting up. CFuller, with an extraordinary five points at this stage, is the round winner with a superbly impressive score and he moves up three places to become joint leader. Very well done CFuller. It is not enough though as Collzy remains our beloved leader but thanks to CFuller and HOORAY HENRIK, who scored an impressive four points and rose two places, there is now a three way tie for the lead.

Timma suffers as a consequence, moving down 2 places, GunmaN1905 remains in fifth place and oriole01 moves down three places. It remains super tight at the top with only four points between the top seven.

Honourable mentions to DB08 and the Supreme Soviet (me) for scoring a very creditable three points.

Very little movement in mid table, with toon_84, Orzelek, Marc.Foster050, Readingfanman, ArsenalFan7 and daylight all staying the same position or moving one place up or down.

At the bottom, well, very little movement. Crispypaul with a very imaginative prediction scored one point but he still doesn't catch LilSaint...yet!

A few no scorers at the bottom, including Razzler, YouReds and craigcwwe. Spare a thought for YouReds in 16th place - he was our first round leader.

Two games to go, still points to play for and any of the top 11 could win this. The rest of us, unfortunately, are playing for pride at this stage.
