I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

Great Armchair World Cup Moments No.3

Ah, the balmy summer of '86. Still at school. Late nights still a novelty. But the World Cup in Mexico that year meant a lot of the games kicking off in the early hours over here. One great game stands out from that World Cup - USSR v Belgium. One of the best matches I have ever seen. 4-3 to the Belgians. After extra time. Jean-Marie Pfaff in goal for the Belgians. Rats up front for the USSR. Great names. Great game. Great stuff.
