The Football / Soccer Sunday Night Gamble - England V Italy

Most of us use Glitch to escape the real world - but tonight there is a small football match going on between England and Italy.  So in the spirit of bringing people together and according to true human nature - I thought we could use it as an excuse to have a gamble.

Heres the rules - WINNER TAKES ALL

The pot starts at 10,000 Currants - which i will put up.

Each entry will cost you 1,000 currants and for this you get the predict the final score - for the purposes of this, the final score will be at the end of normal time (90 mins plus injury time)

You can enter as many times as you like and I will update the post here at the front to say who has chosen what score - if more than one person wins then I'll divide the money up equally.

I need to have your bet and currants mailed to me before kick off - no money, no entry!  Plus my decision is final.  If there arent enough people interested then i'll pull the competition and hand anything back - but i think 5 different people playing will make it worthwhile.

Have a flutter - and good luck to both teams !!!!!!

EDIT: if no one is right, all the money goes back too!
