Time to lighten up guys. None of us are happy not to be there in Germany, but then as the Belfast Telegraph has already spotted, there are 32 countries in the race. If you can’t decide who you’re for let the Tele take the strain as they match your county with a World Cup country. I predict a riot in Dublin when they find out they are supporting England. But then again where better than the centre of the original English Pale (not to mention all that Georgian architecture)?
