World Cup calling
A pair of Charlies - Nicholas and Webster - tell us what the World Cup scores will be on Wednesday.
Last Updated: 16/06/10 7:45am
Throughout the 2010 World Cup we'll be asking the Sky Sports experts to put their reputations on the line and tell us the outcome of the day's fixtures.
But we won't just be asking the football pundits. We'll be inviting friendly faces from across the Sky Sports family to give us their thoughts on the upcoming action.
And as ever, we want to hear from the skysports.com readers. Can YOU beat our pundits in our daily prediction challenge?
Just fill in the feedback form at the bottom of the page and let us know your thoughts.
On Day Six we've literally got a pair of Charlies to take up our challenge. We're pitting Soccer Saturday's super Scotsman Charlie Nicholas against Sky Sports' smart speedway reporter Charlie Webster...
Honduras v Chile
CHARLIE N: I like the look of the Chilean team having seen their previous few games and I think they are slicker than Honduras, who are a bit unpredictable. Chile have got technical ability and can cope with most things, but will they have the mental toughness for the World Cup? I'm not sure, but I think Honduras is a good start for them and I fancy Chile quite strongly. Honduras 1-3 Chile
CHARLIE W: Most likely Chile and the majority of football fans will be expecting a win from Chile here, I can't argue with that, Honduras are big outsiders. But Honduras have scored in every match against Chile so I'm going to give them a consolation goal. Honduras 1-3 Chile
Spain v Switzerland
CHARLIE N: I'm watching the World Cup in Spain and they're all very excited. Everyone's waiting on the fitness of Torres and whether or not Fabregas gets into the team, but the options they have are fascinating. They're a great passing team and they keep the ball better than any other national side. Switzerland are well organised and well drilled but I fancy Spain to get through this. Spain 2-0 Switzerland
CHARLIE W: It has to be Spain with the likes of Iniesta, Villa, Torres, Xavi, Fabregas, oh dear I feel a bit sorry for Switzerland now. I know the Swiss famously exited the 2006 tournament without conceding a goal but I just can't see the Swiss being able to do that here against the likes of Spain. Spain 3-0 Switzerland
South Africa v Uruguay
CHARLIE N: I was quite encouraged by South Africa's opening game and would love to see them get through to the next stage. On the other hand, Uruguay v France was probably as dull as you can get. They had no ambition, no heart and soul, it was just constructive defensive play. They have strikers who can cause problems, but I don't see them coming out to play too often and I see another draw. South Africa 1-1 Uruguay
CHARLIE W: I watched both South Africa and Uruguay's opening games, I was gutted when the hosts hit the post in their opener, I love the spirit and passion they played with. However they don't look solid defensively, this is a difficult one, my heart says Bafana Bafana, my head says Uruguay. South Africa 0-1 Uruguay
