The day has finally come for England’s world cup campaign to start! After a slightly dull opening day to the world cup with France and Uruguay in a 0-0 and the host nation South Africa drawing 1-1 with Mexico we can hopefully expect more goals today. Argentina are playing Nigeria and I want to see Messi back to his best after Mourhinho managed to make him look human in the Champions league semis, and I certainly hope that England can at least put three past our friends across the Atlantic.
With every brand jumping on the bandwagon and definite proof that football sells, Slazenger have released this replica of the ball used in the 1966 world cup final. In a tag-line to influence us to buy it ‘Maybe – just maybe – it’ll bring some ’66
World Cup magic this way’. I doubt it, but it’s quite a nice idea and piece and is only about 10 pounds more than a standard football.
