Random World Cup Thoughts

A few things have caught my attention today, but nothing especially worth a full post, so instead I present you with some random thoughts on today's World Cup news stories.

Apparently Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has GUARANTEED that 'keeper Chris Kirkland will be in the England squad for South Africa 2010. Martinez said, I quote, "After working with him I can guarantee 100 per cent that he will be in the England squad".

This is more than a little strange as a) I wasn't aware that Martinez was England manager and b) as far as I can tell, Fabio Capello has never picked Chris Kirkland for an England squad.

Meanwhile, over at that bastian of sensible reporting, the BBC, is the shocking revelation that Ronaldinho might not go to the World Cup as he was left out of the Brazil squad for their final warm-up match in March.

Er, not much of a revelation considering that he hasn't been in a Brazil squad for over a year. Something which even the article itself admits. Good work, boys.
