We decided to take part in the general excitement over the World Cup (or Coup Du Monde as I prefer to call it for some reason) and set up a sweepstake.
Danny is the only bona fide football fan at Message. Well, a Chelsea fan anyway. So he went through all the international teams with Chelsea players and eventually picked Ivory Coast (or Cote d'Ivoire as I prefer to call it for some reason) on the basis that Drogba may be fit enough to play and beat the world single-handed...
Talking of wildly misplaced optimism, I've plumped for England. Melita has chosen Brazil (or Brasil as I prefer to call it for some reason) and boldly predicts a final showdown against the Three Lions. She's like the John Motson of Message.
We've got a second sweepstake running alongside, wherein we predict how far England will get in the competition. Naturally, I've gone for them reaching the final. I know. But I still remember Bobby Moore so I just can't help myself.
