The 200% World Cup: Argentina vs Belgium, LIVE!

Good afternoon, sports fans. Edward and I are here from five o’clock on with a liveblog of the third quarter-final match at the 2014 World Cup finals, between Argentina and Belgium. Now, these two teams met in both the 1982 finals, when the then-defending champions were beaten by Belgium in the opening match, though four…

The 200% World Cup: The USA vs Belgium – Live!

The 200% World Cup: The USA vs Belgium – Live!

I’m struggling to think of a harder working team than the USA in this tournament, sports fans. They may not be the most technically accomplished team playing this summer, but they certainly put in a full ninety minutes in every match that they play, and I even suspect that there’s a chance that they might…

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast – Conspiracy! Conspiracy!

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast – Conspiracy! Conspiracy!

The 200% World Cup: Belgium v Russia – Live!

They may well be the great hope of many for this tournament, but there were times during their opening match against Algeria looked as if they might not be able to live up to the hype that has preceded them. Still, they got three points from their opening match and a win this evening against…

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast, Day 6 – Brazil Misfires

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast, Day 6 – Brazil Misfires

It’s difficult to imagine from the outside what the pressure on a host nation can be like at a World Cup finals. Host nations that might otherwise have not won the tournament have done previsely that before, and the pressure on Brazil is surely only pushed up a couple of levels because of the nation’s…

The 200% World Cup: Belgium vs Algeria – Live!

Football hipsters will be refilling their tankards with a favourite craft ale, neatly combing their beard and nervously smoothing down their lucky Keegan-era Hamburger SV shirt this afternoon, as the most extravagantly hyped dark horse team in World Cup history step into the fray. Belgium are the latest in a long line of international teams to be able…
