    Sorry about not reminding everyone today, not had much chance after the game last night and it being Fathers Day today. I’ll do the current standings in a second, but first, my other predictions:

    France v Honduras 3-0
    Argentina v Bosnia and Herzegovina 4-0

    As for the standings following day three of the World Cup:
    1. @slr – 20 Points
    2. @bradley13 – 16
    3. @diceman – 15
    4. @DaveF1 – 13
    5= @mathers – 9
    5= @thetobs – 9
    7= @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 – 8
    7= @adityafakhri – 8
    9. @george – 5
    10= @JamieFranklinF1 – 3
    10= @magnificent-geoffrey – 3
    12. @Kingshark – 0

    Meanwhile Kingshark, don’t be too downbeat, you’re one of the few who predicted the entire tournament before it started, so you have a chance of bonus points! :P

    I’m watching the World Cup this year and I’m enjoying it. However, can somebody explain how the extra time works? It seems to work differently than overtime in sports like hockey.

    @lite992 – I’m going to merge this topic into the World Cup one (hopefully, never done it before but it should work) seeing as it’s all the same thing really :)

    And as far as I’m aware it is simply a decision made by a referee or another official judging on roughly how many stoppages there have been during the half and how long the stoppage has been.

    However, I’m not huge on footballing rules so someone who is may be able to explain that better, or correct any mistakes I’ve made.

    @bradley13 I think he was asking about the extra time after the original 90 minutes when there’s a draw.

    @lite992 During the group stage of this World Cup there is no extra time as draws are allowed, in this case both teams will receive one point.

    When the tournament reaches the knockout stages, any game which is level after 90 minutes will go to extra time. Extra time consists of two 15 minutes halves. Unlike hockey where it is first team to score wins the game, in football the teams play the full 30 minutes of extra time, regardless of whether there are goals.

    If the score is still level after extra time, the teams go to a penalty shootout.
