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 23rd: IRAN

They were good to watch, the Iranians. Nearly pulled the shock of the tournament by holding the Argies to a 0-0. Were still in a with a chance of progressing going into the last game as well.  Will have to be seen as a satisfactory tournament for the Middle East men.
