More Features

  1. Players can receive automatic email notifications for forgotten passwords.
  2. Players can modify their tournament winner prediction up until the last 16 kicks off.
  3. The knockout groups are only populated with teams once the group winners are known. Don't think of this website as you would a spreadsheet. You don't just put your predictions in at the start and forget about them. You kept coming back and modifying your predictions depending on who qualified and team form. After all, that is the big advantage of having all your predictions centralised in one place.
