Dale Johnson cruised to victory at the weekend with two correct scorelines, to extend his lead at the top to nine points.
Hope is certainly not lost for the Rest of the World, but our team of challengers need to string some results together if they are to take the crown.
For our midweek round we're heading to Birmingham. But not in England, in Alabama, United States. Welcome, Joshua Meadows.
Joshua tells Showdown: "I'm an 18-year-old Chelsea fan with a soft spot for Sunderland. I'm currently in college and I watch Chelsea every chance I get. My family has always loved soccer but I really became interested during the 2010 World Cup and have loved it ever since."
OK, let's play!

For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on ESPN FC TV's Tommy Smyth and ESPN FC journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.
Points are then awarded as follows:
- Three points for a correct result and scoreline
- One point for a correct result
After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.
Not a particularly successful Tuesday for the trio, with Dale and Tommy picking up a point apiece while Joshua has yet to get off the mark. It's all to play for ahead of Wednesday's games!
