, which should be your regular reference point for various player and country profiles in the build-up, and a host of features during the tournament. Below is the playlist Marc and I built for the piece, and I'll link my country profiles and any other doings as they go up. Boa torneio todo o mundo
Update: Here were my preview pieces on Cameroon, Spain and contribution to pre-tournament expectations, but do have a browse across the site. Some great pieces on the tournament's epochal moments, and good to hear it will break out of its world cup chains and become a regular football blog too.
