just to bring you up-to-date on the amount of world cup prediction drinks you’ll be buying on the 11th of july…
england and greece will make it out of their first round groups but will dismay their fans by not making it out of the top 16. both sides will blame their loss on everyone but themselves.
cameroon will be the most cheerful of all the teams and there will be much music and dancing, even though they will be out early on.
one african team will make it through to the semi-finals. my money’s on south africa (home team advantage)
argentina will win.
first one… big fat fail. greece didn’t touch the ball much in the match against argentina (33%) but their goalie was the hero of the team as far as i’m concerned. ok, he let two in but it could have been so much worse. as for england. they are an embarrassment to the game and have played the most boring football i have ever had the misfortune to turn off. dull, dull, dull, dull, dull. they deserve to be out, simply for being rubbish. we’ll see later today… (update: england scraped into the top 16 so that makes this prediction half right)
number two… would have been one drink for me except that i have to admit that the south african fans are the most cheerful on the planet at this particular moment in football history. i don’t think you have to be a rocket scientist to work out why. perhaps you can stretch to half a drink on that one?
we’ll have to wait a couple more weeks for the rest of the results. in the meantime, here’s the lego version of england’s utter crapness, in the match against america! the country that don’t even call it football! green’s hilarious attempt at actually being a goalkeeper was not the only reason for the team’s dismal failure (so far) at the world cup but it didn’t help. wayne rooney is a joke and i have absolutely no idea why he is considered to be one of the great footballers. but i never got the thing about beckham either. or gazza. yes, they all scored goals but great footballers? i beg to differ…
