World Cup Woes

I believe that the World Cup kicks off in Russia today. It's amazing what money can buy.

I'm old enough to remember when Scotland actually qualified for the finals. Indeed I took in their 3 games at Italia 90 and the Scotland v Brazil opener in Paris in 1998.

Needless to say we are not one of the 32 teams featured this time round.
I organised the work sweep stake and drew Panama so you will forgive me if I support them against England.

I've not got that many songs about football and thankfully no World Cup songs so I 'm going to concentrate on the domestic game with songs about teams from another three countries who never made the finals - Hungary, Zimbabwe and the Czech Republic.

Go Panama!

  1. Yesterday, 10 of the BBC's TV and Radio footie pundits picked the team they think will win the 2018 World Cup.

    Who will win the 2018 World Cup?
    Germany (5): Rio Ferdinand, Jermaine Jenas, Frank Lampard, Gabby Logan, Alex Scott
    Brazil (2): Mark Lawrenson, Alan Shearer
    Spain (2): Kevin Kilbane, Gary Lineker
    France (1): Chris Sutton

    I'm just waiting for the Daily Mail front page accusing the above of treason and calling for them to be publicly executed...

  2. Yes, I remember that afternoon well, waiting for big Colin Hendry to take on the mighty Brazil - It was looking good for a while too. 20 years ago though and 20 years prior to that we were all on the road with Ally's Army - or not as it turned out. Poor guy. Glad you didn't go for that song though.

    Go Panama.

  3. I've got Spain in the sweep. Who sacked their manager yesterday.

  4. I considered supporting Portugal for our pal George, but I could get behind a Panama quite easily. Why not?
