Finally, it falls to me to write a World Cup post. I thought I was doing quite well, avoiding it for five days to give me a chance to swot up on this football lark. Now's my chance to display how very knowledgable I am about it all now.

Coming up

We've got three interesting matches today. First up, New Zealand take on Slovakia. Thanks to Gavin and F1 Wolf I can provide you with this information: New Zealand are really supporting their country, which is great considering that football is not a big thing down there. It's the first time they have qualified since 1982, but they're taking on a country that have qualified for the first time this very year.

Next up, the Ivory Coast take on Portugal. I have actually seen Portugal play before, as they were the team I watched beat us on penalties in whatever international competition we were watching many years ago. I remember them being quite handy around the pitch. I distinctly recall Ronaldo being quite annoying, but the BBC reckon his performance has fallen to average at the moment, and he did not score in qualifying at all. The Ivory Coast are otherwise known as the Elephants, which I don't think is a particularly inspiring name for a team, although I would like to see elephants playing football. They're coached by Sven, who if I recall correctly, used to stand like a statue at the side of the pitch for England, so erm, good luck to them.

The final tie-up sees Brazil take on North Korea. If the Brazilian football fans are anything like their motor-racing counterparts, we'll be deafened by those vuvuzela horns. Brazil must be the outright favourite for this match, and my sources (eh-hem) suggest that they have a fully-fit squad as well. That'll be the first one of the tournament, I reckon. North Korea's team are apparently shrouded in mystery, which sounds about right.

Who's on when

Here is the timing for the three matches. If you're going to watch just one, I would go for the Portugal one, but perhaps you think differently? Let us know.

  • New Zealand v Slovakia - 12:30 (GMT +1)
  • Ivory Coast v Portugal - 15:00 (GMT +1)
  • Brazil v North Korea - 19:30 (GMT +1)

I'd also like to note that the matches are on BBC, ITV and ITV in that order, because otherwise I leave it to the last minute to find out and end up scrabbling around to locate the coverage. This page is undeniably useful.

That should do it for now, I suppose. I hope I haven't let you all down too much. There are still plenty of days of coverage to come, so if you fancy writing a guest post for an upcoming World Cup day, please let us know. Otherwise, you'll end up with more posts like this. See you in the comments!

    By the way, I am going home early to watch Portugal vs. Ivory Coast, but I set the tape for it just in case...

    When I tried to do that, I get a listing saying elfenbenskysten vs. portugal - sounded like something out of a Tolkein novel...

    It is so polite for the NZ match to be on at a reasonable hour. I have decided to make a start on my All Blacks scarf while watching the All Whites. It seems the right thing to do.

    I hope Brazil thrill today, though I feel torn since I feel like supporting N. Korea just because they are yet another Asian team.

    But most importantly: MORE GOALS!

    Any foul against you. Includes:

    badly timed tackles

    body checks

    handballs

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 11:56

  • Amy15/06/2010 at 11:59

    is this like F1 where it's bad to cheer when your opponent blows up? Or tennis where you can't clap if someone double faults? Because I'm quite enjoying it when Slovakia miss.

    Football is when you can throw away all sense of hypocrisy. I am pretty sure the Slovaks will ROFL should you concede.

    Is that v-tek fellow named after a honda engine?

  • Amy15/06/2010 at 12:05

    I get nervous when they kick it towards their own goal. Why do they do that?

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 12:07

    I get nervous when they kick it towards their own goal. Why do they do that?

    Because sometimes there is no way forward and it is better to back pass than to give up possession.

    A badly done back pass can result in a goal though, so it must be used with caution.

  • paul15/06/2010 at 12:07

    That was more like it

    No, third or fourth from them...

    Ball possession exactly 50-50. Nicely balanced this game.

    Injury time...

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 12:16

    why is the 45 minute half not over.

    Because there is 1 min added time.

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 12:40

    Possible. The other guy (off-ball) was definitely off-side so the linesman may have misjudged there. Too bad since the referee's decision is final.

    Haven't heard of any of the North Korea players, though apparantly one is called the Peoples Wayne Rooney. If they say so...

    They've got some rather snappy names.

    The BBC are having an album together of each team with a person standing next to a member of that team. Here's England: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/world_cup_2010/8630688.stm

    Beckenbauer slagging off England for playing route 1.

    http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/world-of-sport/article/9282/

    ForChristine's benefit Franz Beckenbauer is a bit like Jackie Stewart and route 1 means thumping the ball from the defence to the strikers rather than passing it on the ground.

    If any of my tv looks like that, I'll never watch again.

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 19:29

    I like Brazil though. They always seem very "you might score 4 goals, but we'll score 8"

    Yeah well not against N. Korea. Not even 1 yet. :P

  • RG15/06/2010 at 19:29

    Yeah well not against N. Korea. Not even 1 yet. :P

    Maybe they'll remember they are Brazil and not Germany in the second half.

  • Steven Roy15/06/2010 at 19:30

    Yeah well not against N. Korea. Not even 1 yet. :P

    Blame NK. They have to score their 4 first.

    I think they are going to be sneaky and wait to the last minute and only score one. Typical sneaky commy trick

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 19:30

    Germany may have cursed the usual flowy teams to act like them while they perform their own silky skills.

    Sneaky, but the world would laud them if they manage it. ;)

    But before that Korea gets a corner.

  • Steven Roy15/06/2010 at 19:40

    Yes. Then NK have to attack properly rather than just defend and another 4 will go in

  • Steven Roy15/06/2010 at 19:40

    What a goal. Maicon

  • RG15/06/2010 at 19:40

    How the hell did he score from there?

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 19:40

    Oh goodness me! Brazil goal!

  • Christine15/06/2010 at 19:41

    Weird angle!

    Ridiculous, what a ridiculous goal.

    Finally I say something that actually happens and is not immediately disproved

    Easier just to say 'You can't save'

    He should have done better, didn't cover his near post well enough.

    Goalkeep should be a verb. If this was a football site that would go in the dictionary. If we had one

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 19:46

    It seems the only frailty in the defensive N. korean squad is the goalkeeper.

    I am sure the people's goalkeeping college has produced many ready made replacements

    Their striker for one...

  • Marilene Riddle15/06/2010 at 19:50

    That may be because they take too long to cross when attacking.

    Not sure but he was beng put on the stretcher with his leg at a very odd angle

    Agreed. But as compared to previously, N. Korea was guilty of not closing down their opponents.
