World Cup 2010 – it’s not over yet

An entire month of football culminates in a victorious England side. Well, maybe not, but you can relive it however you like with these World Cup extending ideas

They think it’s all over. It is now. But it doesn’t have to be…

Football Manager Handheld

£7, iPhone/iPod Touch

You doubt Fabio Capello’s ability in the role as England’s manager, but who are you to talk? Football Manager 2010 will answer that. Even if your walk doesn’t match your talk, this pint-sized version of the colossal management series is bound to be more entertaining than reliving another defeat through the sports section on the commute.

Adidas World Cup 2010 official match ball

£150, www.adidas.com

Need an excuse for poor performance? Blame the ball. That’s the way the professionals do it. Now you can, too. Drop £150 on the official match ball, take it to the park and see if you can whack it straight between the posts. Remember: it was all the ball’s fault.


Start a Facebook campaign

You want Fabio Capello to lose his job. Then you want him to turn up at every footy fan’s house and apologise personally. If Facebook can help Rage Against the Machine knock X Factor off the top chart spot for Christmas, anything’s possible. Start your campaign, get your mates on side and massage the media massive. Job done.
