this world cup thing

I’ve spent the better part of this evening trying to pick a team for fantasy football (ooh, aah) and it went like this:

  • enter the usual suspects, players who play for European teams and who are vaguely familiar
  • look for interesting names, like Fred, and Kaka
  • remember my Ghanaian workmate from London and add a few interesting sounding Africans
  • remember Google. Search for “world’s best defender” and “world’s best midfielder”.

Done. It’s not going beat my Group of cousins though, two of whom are football fanatics and the other is based in Berlin and already has his tickets sorted.

I always get a kicking in these things…
