    Whose failure are you supporting?

    It's World Cup tradition to pick a first team and a second team to support, and everyone has a favourite underdog, but which team are you watching in the hope that they are horribly belted and leave the pitch already making a noose from their shoelaces?

    For me it's the USA comfortably. I'm never a fan of their sports teams at the best of times, and for some reason I find their mere presence at the World Cup somewhat irritating. They're in an unpredictable yet tough group, and I see a return of 0 points as a distant yet plausible (and desirable) possibility.

    France, but somehow they got one of the easiest possible groups.

    I've decided to adopt a patronising "hope they do well as they're not very good" attitude to Oz.

    No prize for guessing Scaly's answer to this one.

    Mine? England would be fun, just to see the immense overreaction of the media. Especially if they did so to Germany.

    Wouldn't mind an Italian failure, either.
