So, is there really no World Cup thread? Well, there is now!
Personally I've had a hard time getting into it, because my homeland (Denmark) didn't qualify and because of the local protests and the corruption in FIFA.
But, now it's underway, and I can't keep away.
In the absence of Denmark I'm rooting for Italy, because I have family there, and because Andrea Pirlo is my secret football crush.
I watched Italy beat England 2-1 yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good game from both teams, and a win for my team.
On a different note, I'm really liking the new tighter jerseys. Now they just need to bring back the short shorts of the 70s.
What are your thoughts on the tournament/protests/corruption? Who's your team? How are they faring? Am I the only GRian watching the world cup?
