Rather than just giving everyone a country and then 90% of people wondering why they bothered, I’ve added some extra bits into to make it more interesting.

Everyone gets a nation, a player and a random event.

Players are taken from the top 32 in the odds for the winner of the Golden Ball.

You get points for certain things.

**Nation Points:**

Winning the World Cup: 10 points

Each round played in after the groups: 10 Points

Each goal scored: 2 points

Each goal conceded: -2 points

(Shoot outs don’t count)

**Player Points:**

Winning the Golden Ball: 10 points

Winning the Golden Boot: 10 points

Winning the World Cup: 10 points

Each round played in after the groups: 10 points

Each goal scored: 5 points (penalty shootouts don’t count)

Each assist: 5 points

Red Card: -5 points

Missing a penalty in regular time or a shoot out: -10 points

Scoring in a penalty shoot out: 10 points

If a player takes the final kick in a shootout they get +or- 10 bonus points for weather or not they score it

Player points for each round and assists are there to help those of you who don’t get strikers.

**Random Event:**

50 points if your random event happens.
