I've now decided on my selection for the Golden Boot award.

Karim Benzema of France. ... and if he turns out to be crocked and cannot play, or a forn player of a country that doesn't qualify for the Euro's, then I won't bother with any other suggestion! ... So far, I've mentioned two players and got their nationality wrong! :oops: :lol:

Bugger me! It's starting tonight! :dance:

Group stage points system (I'm pretty sure it'll change in the next round 8-) )

3 points for a correct score.
1 point for correct result but wrong score.
1 point each for every goal you're chosen scorer scores.
