Of course we at Paddy Power don’t condone excessive consumption of alcohol (unless of course it’s on the boss’s company credit card in which case it’s fine) but the reality is that over the course of the next few weeks, you’re not going to care much about a decent chunk of the World Cup group games – not looking at any Iran v Nigeria in particular.
That’s where our World Cup Drinking Game can come into play. As the football hipsters in your company waffle on about how Switzerland’s hoofing the ball into the stands is actually quite admirable tactically, you can just keep yourself entertained with the amusing forfeits we’ve compiled.
It’s time for Day 3’s game which features four matches, but largely talks about one – England v Italy. That’s a little harsh on the other six teams involved in Saturday’s action, but if they want to feature more in the Drinking Game, they should get some players who lend themselves better to forfeits in Drinking Games.
The rules – and we use the word ‘rules’ advisedly because you can sack it off or just ignore it whenever suits you – are simple; every time on of the events mentioned one the drinking game actually happen, you knock back the amount of alcohol prescribed on the image. It’s designed for beer, but if you’re feeling dangerous, you could try it with a spot of vodka or Toilet Duck.
