Update: Thanks to all that entered, we needed a playoff after there were several players who guessed the same minute closest to Landon Donovan’s 62nd minute goal. Our playoff ended up being the England vs Germany game and the winner ended up being Matt, congrats man! Keep following for more giveaways before the end of the World Cup.
Seeing as the US pulled off a pretty impressive last gasp 1-0 win today to seal their passage into the knock-out phase of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, I thought it would be a good time for another giveaway!
Up for grabs is the pair of Nike Mercurial Miracles that I used during testing a few weeks back. These might not be the Superfly’s or one of the classy boots from the Nike Elite range, but they are a really great performing boot worth $100.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below with the name and minute of the player you think will score first for the US in their second round game with Ghana this Saturday, June 26th. The winner will be decided by player first and then by the minute the goal is scored. So, basically, to have any chance of winning you have to select the correct name of the goal scorer. The winner will be the person who has then guessed closest to the minute of the first goal.
As an example of how your entry should look: Michael Bradley 30th minute
That is all you have to do to be entered. So, help your friends out by letting them know they should enter the competition also!
- Open to US residents only (sorry…if you are non-US and want to enter for pride you are more than welcome!)
- Each person can have 2 entries only.
- The winner is the person that selects the correct player and closest minute to the first US goal scored in their game with Ghana on June 26th.
- If an unselected player scores the first goal, the competition will run to the second goalscorer.
- If there is no goalscorer, a winner will be selected at random.
- Winner will be announced after the USA vs Ghana game.
- If two people end up with the same winning player and time, a tie breaker will take place.
