The 200% World Cup: Brazil 2014 By Numbers

Our resident obsessive-compulsive Dotmund has been busy drawing other things biting other things, and so has let World Cup artwork slide. Which is a relief to everyone.

The 200% World Cup: The Group D Final Round – Live!

As with both of yesterday’s group finales, this afternoon’s pair of matches feature three teams battling over the two qualification spots and one useless team who are already out.
