I was thinking of an interesting title for this post but decided that it's too short to waste energy on. All I actually want know is who is going to win the World Cup?
France? Well, they seem to be favourites and it will be a dream ending to a glimmering career for old Zizou (who was caught on long camera lens smoking an entjie before the Portugal match so that old myth that smoking is bad for you is now debunked).
Italy? History seems to be on their side, playing well in every third World Cup and the last time there was a Italian football scandal (as their is now at Juventus) they won.
Who do you think will win?
I'll tell you what I think on Sunday night (or Monday morning as the game is at 2 am in this far-flung corner of the world).
