Brazil, you say? They know how to play football over there, don't they? But it's a long way for one so middle aged as I to travel.

So instead, I shall slouch into my leather armchair and view the tournament from this side of the Atlantic. I shall try and watch every game and will definitely make wildly inaccurate predictions too.

I do solemnly vow to give you a real sense of what it's like to not be at the World Cup. This is the blog where all the colour and atmosphere and passion of watching the world's greatest sporting tournament on a wall mounted widescreen really comes to life.

Drawn out lack of draws

The last time there was a draw in the World Cup was in Rio when a host of footballing celebs picked balls from pots and decided who would play who.

12 games in and they've all been decided either way. Obviously I'm tempting fate here as Game 13 has 0-0 written all over it...
