World Cup - Runners & Riders

Well, we might be living in a tent on top of a Land Rover, but we are following the World Cup as best we can.  Mainly via Radio (BBC World Service) and the odd bar TV when we can find one.  Needless to say, we have executed our own cup draw and after the initial rounds, these are the results of the teams we picked going through.

Vick's Teams into final 16
  • Uraguay
  • Holland
  • Chile
  • Germany
  • England
  • Paraguay
  • Portugal
Nick's Teams into final 16
  • S Korea
  • USA
  • Ghana
  • Slovakia
  • Brazil
  • Argentina
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • Mexico
We hope that Rooney can score some goals today - May the Force of Bobby Be With Him !!

If people would like to come up with a "prize suggestion" for the winner of our on the road world cup draw and also a suitable runner up prize, please send your suggestions to nick [at]

FOOTNOTE: As we all know Spain won!  They deserved to win even though Holland seemed to adopt the Kung Fu Strategy for the game.  We were GUTTED about Ghana but loved speaking to the people in Ghana about how they did.
