Bet you didn’t know that the players at the World Cup have special balls.
Yes – these balls were designed by Dr. Andy Harland at the University of Loughborough. He spent four years researching footballs and designed ‘the roundest ball ever’, designed to maximize a player's skills.
The balls have been named ‘Jabulani’ which means ‘celebrate’ in Zulu.

Despite the special balls, I don’t think that the England team has anything to celebrate!

No - but we Irish do! I wish I were mature enough to sympathise, but I'm not, so i won't. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha etc.

They can make the ball as round as they like, but they still can't make football an interesting game!
