Take on our experts

Premier Showdown - September 14-16

September 17, 2013

A fine win for the Rest of the World before the international break got our team of contenders off the mark for the season - now they will look to go on a run of form.

Representing the ROTW next time out is Jimmy Lee.

Jimmy tells Showdown: "I'm 25 years old, live in San Jose, CA and I work as an IT Consultant. I grew up playing and loving soccer and have been a Manchester City supporter since High School. My love for soccer intensified when I lived in Argentina for two years. I love that City continues to sign Argentines including one more before the deadline."

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.

We want your entries for the first weekend of the season - so get your selections in now!

Tommy storms to victory with an outstanding score of 13, matching the season's best of last season. He's started like a train!
