Welcome to the final round of our game!

10 players have predicted France to win the title at the Stade de France today while 7 players will be backing Portugal. This looks to be decisive at the top of our standings, as I expect the four prize spots to be held by players who picked the Final’s winner.

Good luck, and enjoy the Final!
