I never had high expectations for ITV's World Cup coverage, but I swear the TV was on for only three seconds before Jim Rosenthal came out with a faux-Aussie 'No worries'. The first of many, I fear…

Still: the Rambler's not-even-looking-at-fate-from-the-corner-of-my-eye tip for the tournament: watch out for group A. Out of Argentina, Australia and Ireland, any two could conceivably go through, and no one will want to meet them in the quarters. But that said, anyone who reckons Australia will roll over easily is a fool: what may count against them is that the opening game of the tournament is absolutely crucial for them.
