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.

Third Place Match: Brazil 0-3 Holland

Misery heaped upon misery for the less than miserly hosts. No metallic medallions for brazil this time     Holland dutchspatched with one of the poorest squads to sport the yellow and blue with ease. An early van persie pen sending them on their way. Back to the drawing board for brazil. But are the Dutch destined to never win this thing?
