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.

They Finished 22nd: HONDURAS

They left their mark on this tournament, the Hondurans. Mainly on their opponents. No nonsense would best summarise their approach. No points neatly sums up their return.  The weak links in a weak group, I've always had a soft spot for the Hondurans ever since they qualified for the 1982 tournament. But there's nothing soft about them, that's for sure.
