Although I had full confidence on my forecasts with a room of error the realisations were surprise to me. Yes, opening match was scened to home country support via referee; yes teams covered large distance before the matches; climate, injuries, nutrition might be all culprits for an excuse but I admit that I failed in accurate forecasting.
One way or another, some teams made a difference in this tournament with their hearts, hard-work and efforts; while some others did create disappointment. In this regard, I feel obliged to apologise for not to be able to precise in this statistically crazy World Cup event on my part for the discrepancies in my forecasts.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the matches.
