hotly tipped

Based on the opening day of World Cup 2010, the following commentary tropes look like being strong favourites to dominate the tournament:

- The 'colourful' native support.
- Their 'child-like' enthusiasm.
- References to (implicitly barefoot) villagers watching games projected on sheets.

Those watching in stadiums may well fare better, as the stewards' first aid training will hopefully cover anyone patronized to within an inch of their life.

If the words 'marvellous natural rhythm' pass Clive Tyldesley's lips at any stage my head may explode.
