Here it is then, the ultimate World Cup drinking game.
In theory, it’s perfectly possible to enjoy the tournament without alcoholic beverages.
Just like it’s possible to walk from Canada to Brazil, in theory.
Follow the rules below for a suitable level of lubrication that will make England’s round of 16 exit to Poland considerably more bearable.
- Free-kick – one finger
- Yellow card – two fingers
- Corner – three fingers
- Woodwork hit – three fingers
- Goal – four fingers
- Red card – four fingers
- Penalty – four fingers
- VAR referral – see it off
- Manager controls a loose ball – see it off
- Pitch invader – see it off
TWO FINGERS IF THE COMMENTATORS, PUNDITS OR PRESENTERS SAY THESE:
- “Carnival atmosphere” and/or “Festival of football”
- “Just happy to be here/make it this far” — patronising as f**k
- “Mix of youth or experience”
- “Can’t write off Germany” — they are the holders and the bookies favourites, literally nobody has written them off in years
- “Dark horses”
- “Take it a game at a time” — as opposed to what, playing every game at once?
- “Group of death”
- “Couldn’t write a script like this” — The plot of ‘Interstellar’ involves the main character being propelled into a human-made tesseract in space to become a ghost from the past who passes on quantum data via morse code so that someone can develop a gravitational propulsion theory that allows humans to master advanced space travel. And a you’re telling me these scriptwriters couldn’t think of a team scoring an 84th minute winner against a team slightly higher than them in the world rankings? Get outta here!
- “He’s hit that too well”
- “Must-win game” — yep, that’s the general idea of football
FOUR FINGERS IF THE COMMENTATORS, PUNDITS OR PRESENTERS REFERENCE THE FOLLOWING:
- England’s penalty record
- Brazil’s ‘samba’ style
- Complaints about the ball
- People dancing/celebrating in the streets of a capital city
- Iceland thunderclap
- Ronaldo during an Argentina game
- Messi during a Portugal game
Enjoy, and remember, always drink responsibly.
