    Sweden and Denmark to both make the quarter finals.

    Another game with a 6 goal difference.

    Neither France nor Belgium make the semis.

    No team from the Asian group makes it out of the group stages.

    Uruguay to make the semis.

    Not sure if these all count as wild, but I tried!

    - Argentina out in the group stage
    - Suarez bites another player
    - England win a penalty shoot out
    Suarez to bite more players than he scores goals.

    A truly unlikely prediction I begin to care about football and stop wishing that it would disappear from the top of my news feed.
    (I appreciate other people care but it should be possible to not have to have it at the top of the news feed and receive“breaking news” about it!)

    My Argentina one looks OK atm.

    I can see the other two coming in too. Suarez was getting more and more frustrated in the first game. If it carries on I think the bite is nailed on.

    Mexico to win the thing. Love em, remind me so much of us 15/16 season. Pace abuse and counters, terrifyingly deep and last ditch defending to ruffle the feathers of big sides

    I was more referring to every time I put the tv on or my news feed on my phone but thanks anyway.

    I just struggle to see why one sport deserves so much more attention than things like the olympics or other sports!

    It's not to do with how much attention it deserves it's how much it receives, football is popular and a lot of people watch it, if there is anything going on for another sport maybe it will receive more coverage, like if it was the cricket World Cup, there could be a lot of coverage of another sport but if not many people watch it, it would be pointless showing it lots without anything going on, and showing something any sport lots does not mean it will automatically receive a lot of viewers.
    Also world Cup is going on, there aren't any other or any major events for any other sports going on right now.
    For the news feed on your phone you can adjust your recommendations and preferences as it is a feed.

    I understand that, sorry if I sound annoyed I’m just already fed up of football!

    Seems Apple is being a pain and won’t give anyway to get rid of the football bar at the top of the news feed though.

    Oh well, only three more weeks to deal with!

    It's alright, sorry if I seem annoyed too. I'm not exactly a football fan btw, I only watch football occasionally and going to watch a few of the matches in the world Cup, not the majority, but I don't hate football either.

    I think you can probably change it in settings, most news feeds are feeds because they're based on recommendations and so these can usually be changed.

    I think the summer olympics gets roughly equal attention to a world cup when it's on, just in a different way.

    Football has a way wider audience than most other sports, especially the world cup.

    I do agree it's annoying if you aren't interested but it's not that hard to ignore imo.
