Bleacher Report's experts were keen not to rest on the laurels of their efforts of last season, so they will go into battle for the whole of the World Cup.

Each game will feature a score prediction combined with a Man of the Match selection. (Decision will be based on FIFA's official Man of the Match.)

The predictions are below, and you will be able to chart their success—or lack thereof—for the rest of the tournament on our weekly scoreboard.

Post your own picks on Twitter and include @br_uk. Anyone who gets all correct scorelines and the Man of the Match awards correct will get a Bleacher Report goody bag.
