1. For the semifinals, pick the winners of these games (8 points each):

France vs. Belgium

England vs. Croatia

2. Pick the score in each game, not including penalty kicks (5 points minus 1 for each goal off the correct score, so predicting an England win of 3-2 for a game that England wins 2-0 is worth 2 points).

3. Pick a player in each game and get 2 points for each goal he scores.

4. Pick a player in each game and get 2 points for each yellow card he receives or 5 points for a straight red card.at ended 2-1 is worth 3 points).

I picked Johan Djourou to get a card when England played Sweden. This would have been an achievement for the ages, because he plays for Switzerland.
