Nico Rosberg has a kick about with German striker, Lukas Podolski.

The World Cup has thus far treated fans to a fantastic spectacle, with great drama, breathtaking goals, beautiful typography and some unexpected results. Wait a second, beautiful typography? Why yes indeed.

Did you know that in 2006 Dalton Maag claimed the team with the best typography won the World Cup? No, me neither, but renowned typography blog Font Feed did, and they have put together a fine post detailing everything you ever dared ask about typefaces used in this year's most exclusive football competition.

Who would have guessed that Italy's team shirts use a custom typeface called Crepello? Or that Ghana's strip features another called Olembe? Designer Paul Barnes goes into some detail in Font Feed article about his work for Puma Pace and the thought processes that went into creating some of the custom lettering.

For the African series of numbers I was interested in making letters that had an element of the handmade and the brush stroke. I had seen at previous African Cup of Nations how the fans enjoyed displaying loyalty, by painting their bodies and writing the names of their favourite players.


Paul Barnes

I bet you'll never look at a back side of a football player the same way again. Typography rocks the World... Cup.

Who's playing who

Today will see another three games played in South Africa, and after the diabolical display England put on yesterday, I'll just be glad to see a decent match being played out between competent nations.

Saturday's schedule looks like this:

  • Netherlands v Japan (12:30 GMT+1)
  • Ghana v Australia (15:00 GMT+1)
  • Cameroon v Denmark (19:30 GMT+1)

Here's hoping Australia fair better than in their opening match against Germany. As ever, do let us know who you're supporting and what predictions you have for the games ahead.

Yesterday, the sound of parping vuvuzelas was temporally drowned out by unabashed booing of Rooney & Co. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on whether fans should stick by, or stick it to, the teams they've travelled so far to see.

    .... does england have the "Crapello" type face then??

    (sorry it had to be said...)

    ..... looking forward to the first game of the day! Hopefully will see a few goals...

    About the booing: My friend looked into the cost of going to the world cup and she reckoned it was in the range of £3000-£5000 to go. If I went and saw a game like that last night (probably the worst since they played Sweden in Euro 92) then I would boo my head off. And it's arrogant of Rooney to think that we wouldn't either!

    I was thinking the last time England actually played well for the full match against decent opposition... and I think it was Croatia last September.

  • RG19/06/2010 at 18:38

    How old are Rommedahl and Tomasson, I swear they've been around forever.

  • RG19/06/2010 at 18:41

    Goooal Cameroon! Samuel Eto'o

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 18:43

    ah well,

    nice to see amateur hour is returning to the world cup - that was truly atrocious stuff by the danish defence

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 18:43

    They have quite a lot of colours for their kit.

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 18:44

    that Danish back line is as flimsy as a sweet tasting pastry

  • me19/06/2010 at 18:44

    They have quite a lot of colours for their kit.

    and a quality typeface.

  • me19/06/2010 at 18:52

    they look like they're wearing yellow wellies on our screen :)

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 18:53

    they look like they're wearing yellow wellies on our screen :)

    Wellies:

    Great for endorsements - awful for playing football with

  • me19/06/2010 at 18:57

    denmark know their limitations. i wish we did.

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:02

    no-one can finish for cameroon :(

  • RG19/06/2010 at 19:04

    Good start...gone a bit flat now though

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:04

    GOAL!

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 19:04

    Great goal!

  • RG19/06/2010 at 19:04

    Good start...gone a bit flat now though

    And then Denmark score...

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:04

    defence were nowhere

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 19:04

    Denmark scored

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 19:04

    Good goal al the same

  • Pat W19/06/2010 at 19:04

    wow

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:05

    wow

    (erm, yeah watching this instead of listening to Joe... will catch him later :) )

    the beauty of on demand media :)

  • Adie19/06/2010 at 19:05

    Tad offside?

  • Pat W19/06/2010 at 19:07

    the beauty of on demand media :)

    I went to rewind Dr Who because I missed the first 10 seconds, but then I realised it was on BBC1..

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:12

    wow!

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:13

    wasted chance.

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:13

    omg!

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 19:13

    post got in the way....

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 19:13

    Blimey. It's all going on in this match.

  • RG19/06/2010 at 19:13

    Deary me. Shoulda shot himself surely?

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:13

    how could neither team finish something like that!

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 19:13

    Deary me. Shoulda shot himself surely?

    That would be a bit of an over-reaction.

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:14

    and again. love it :)

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:14

    Deary me. Shoulda shot himself surely?

    That would be a bit of an over-reaction.

    :)

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:14

    shocking from the keeper.

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 19:23

    Why do they look so miserable??

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:32

    they want to swap shirts at half time?

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:34

    a chance already.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:34

    right, time for football :)

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:35

    right, time for football :)

    camaroon are suddenly looking impressive.

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:36

    foul?

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:36

    foul?

    risky.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:36

    camaroon are suddenly looking impressive.

    I have had it on in the background but not been totoally concentrating, seems a good game though

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:36

    foul?

    He got the ball, lucky he did otherwise thatd been dodgy

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:42

    ouch. banging heads.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:46

    Oooh, a julubani ball just landed in my road

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:47

    did I just hear that Gronkjaer is playing?!!!

  • RG19/06/2010 at 19:48

    did I just hear that Gronkjaer is playing?!!!

    Jesper Gronkjaer? I think so...

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 19:49

    GOAL!

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 19:49

    just as i was about to say it was going to be a draw...

  • RG19/06/2010 at 19:49

    Oooh, I come back and Denmark score.

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:49

    nice left foot

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 19:49

    great shot

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:49

    Jesper Gronkjaer? I think so...

    He has to be, like, 38 or 39 now surely. I remember him playing for chelsea about 8 years ago!

  • RG19/06/2010 at 19:50

    He has to be, like, 38 or 39 now surely. I remember him playing for chelsea about 8 years ago!

    Only 32. I was shocked earlier when I found out that Jon Dahl Tomasson was only 33...

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:52

    Only 32. I was shocked earlier when I found out that Jon Dahl Tomasson was only 33...

    Mind = blown

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 19:57

    Very well controlled play from Cameroon then, shame it went to nothing

  • me19/06/2010 at 19:58

    save!

  • me19/06/2010 at 20:02

    was that manager once in the fine young cannibals?

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 20:03

    didn't know roland lee gift had changed career

  • me19/06/2010 at 20:04

    :)

    that's him. same person :)

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 20:04

    sweet

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:05

    great save!

  • me19/06/2010 at 20:05

    another great save. keepers doing well tonight.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:07

    No direction on the header, boo. cmon camerooooooon!!

  • RG19/06/2010 at 20:08

    As it stands, Netherlands are the first team to qualify for the knockouts... Cameroon are the first team out.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:09

    That sums up bendtner for me so much. Player out wide free, shoots himself.

  • me19/06/2010 at 20:10

    that man must have such a headache!

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:10

    ouch!!

    Aw he fell over getting up

  • RG19/06/2010 at 20:10

    Owwwwww. That hurts.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:12

    Oooooooh.

  • me19/06/2010 at 20:18

    camaroon's goalie may as well get up there. 10-1 down won't make it any worse.

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:21

    Awww, unlucky cameroon :(

  • RG19/06/2010 at 20:21

    Aw well, cheerio Cameroon

  • me19/06/2010 at 20:22

    well done denmark. camaroon played better i reckon, but the squandered so many chances.

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 20:22

    Aww, poor sad players.

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 20:23

    so are cameroon out?

  • RG19/06/2010 at 20:24

    so are cameroon out?

    Yep, and Netherlands are through.

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 20:25

    Yep, and Netherlands are through.

    What a shame

  • Christine19/06/2010 at 20:28

    Do Cameroon still have to play another game even though they're out?

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/06/2010 at 20:29

    Do Cameroon still have to play another game even though they're out?

    Yep - could effect who finishes 2nd

  • Lukeh19/06/2010 at 20:29

    Do Cameroon still have to play another game even though they're out?
