England vs Croatia
Who was UK Prime Minister when England won the World Cup
First thought it was Ted Heath but I’m thinking it’s actually Wilson…just can’t remember his first name for bugger!!

You are correct with the surname and that is sufficient.

Ans; In house MURDER of a son or daughter by a parent.

Correct, although how that is connected to Portugal is completely beyond my comprehension.

All correct!

Remaining questions:

Group C


North Macedonia vs Netherlands
Who wrote the 1854 novel 'North and South'?

Group E

Spain vs Sweden
Who wrote the opera 'The Barber of Seville'?

By my reckoning, Unit and Enidpend have a further question to answer and have until 21:00 on Thu, 10 June 21 to do so.

In order that all questions are answered, research will be permissible on this occasion.

As detailed in the 'Additional Questions?' thread, if Unit or Enidpend fail to answer a question then all other contestants will have their fourth correct answer cancelled.

Not a clue Mr R.
Unlike a certain quizzer (you know who you are) I don't like to google the answers as not fair on the other more knowledgeable participants.

That is the noble attitude that one would expect from an old Harlingtonian.

However, in order that all questions are answered, Googling, Binging or leafing through the Encyclopedia Britannica will be allowed on this occasion.

This attitude also applies to Enidpend.

Thanking Mr Google as I wouldn't have had a Scooby

"Gioachino Rossini"

And apologies for some reason I thought it was only 3 questions each so had missed this!

Both correct!

3 questions each was the original plan; however, at the start of this week there were still 9 questions that remained unanswered. As there were 9 contestants, it made sense to increase each player's allocation to 4.
