Seconds out, round two

If watching football is not an enjoyable enough experience in itself, watching when it involves players in your McDonald's FIFA World Cup Fantasy team makes it all that more exciting. How your players performed at the weekend, as well as their forthcoming opponents, will be on your mind as you make your transfers for Matchday 2 ahead of the deadline on Tuesday at 20:00 CET.

With the overall winner securing a dream trip for two to the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, complete with match tickets and accommodation, be sure to use these wisely. And remember: coaches and players from team positioned lower on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking score more points.

The scores for Matchday 1 are currently updating and will be finalised soon.

It was central to him establishing a 108-point cushion over third-placed MauroFifa of Brazil in the McDonald's FIFA World Cup Predictor, with Canada's freddo67 only 28 points off the pace in second. The top three are followed by Portuguese fgabriel86, Jovani of Mexico and Iran's serius.

With another ten games on the forthcoming menu (see below), the standings could have a different complexion to them at the end of Matchday 2, so make sure you beat the deadline of Tuesday 20:00 CET to improve your chances of snatching the grand prize of a dream trip for two to South Africa 2010.
