Les Dark Bleus

Les Dark Bleus

For those Scots who are left, again, to watch the greatest football tournament on earth at home you may be pondering on what football team to support.

Of course there are the obvious and tired choices of “anyone playing England” ie. Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica but if you can put away comic and historical grudges there are a few teams to choose from.

I don’t anyone will begrudge Brazil support, especially if they turn on the samba style. For good reason they are the neutral’s favourite. There is also Argentina with Messi, Arguero, Tevez etc and the technically supreme Spanish (although admit it, they are boring us now).

I don’t mind the English doing well especially as they have so many Liverpool players however i can’t see them getting out of the group. The Belgians and Croatians both qualified from our qualifying group and in a roundabout way their success may reflect well upon us.

There are also a slew of minnows to go for. Costa Rica, Honduras and Algeria will all be imbued with a Scottish underdog style.

But for those who want to support a team in dark blue we have the French, who obviously trying to garner some sort of Caledonian zeal and fight have opted to play in Scottish style away shirt. It may look more like our rugby shirt but it will do, especially with a skull full of cheap ale, sitting in front of the box.
