Victory in Round 4 was bittersweet for Mexicano1. The 91 points the American claimed for envisioning a USA defeat to Trinidad and Tobago were crucial for his win.

Runner-up, DRAGONSOR had an impressive round and enjoyed the added pride of correctly predicting his country to upset South American greats - Argentina. Another Chilean dragon - dragonxnival - tied with Tito91 from Costa Rica for third spot.

New predictors at the top
The Round 4 results shook up the overall points table. After two runner-up rounds, pasiONazul17 finally claimed top spot. German Supercoach fell hard from first to third, while Argentine bichon blazed into second place from 17th.  Countryman Ronyma flew into fourth from 22nd place and China's Danyu87 rounded off the top five shuffle by climbing 53 places this matchday.

The weekend's hot matches are Honduras-Mexico and Jamaica-Canada. Teams have everything to play for in the final stage of their semi-final qualifying round. Can Honduras beat Mexico at home to book their passage to the next stage? Can Jamaica sneak in the back door or will Canada destroy Caribbean FIFA World Cup dreams?
