Italy's ALESSIA96 and xErnestOx of Germany entered Round 5 outside the top ten, but they finished it in first and third respectively after using their joker to predict that Chelsea and Manchester United would draw 1-1. Familiar names can be seen jostling for position at the summit, though, with Argentinian Germanbark up to second, devildriver of Mexico down three places to fourth, and Germany's kammer in fifth.

Brazilian leoncorrea and Paraguay's lauri.. also remained in the top ten, where they have been joined by hunefer of Canada, Georgia's bakari and Croatian dioklecijan. But the performance of the round was delivered by Tartarius. The Romania returned 713 points - 436 more than his previous best - to set a competition record and win himself a national team jersey signed by a FIFA World Cup™ winner.

That same prize could be yours following Round 6. So, what will be the outcome when arch-rivals collide in Brazil, Costa Rica, Italy, Portugal and Spain? Can Portsmouth players Sol Campbell, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe heighten their former employers' troubles, or can big-spending Tottenham Hotspur collect their first league win of the season? It's time to start answering these questions.
