Reports have recently surfaced in South Africa of a controversial plan by Fifa to give permission to 31 'other teams' to compete in the 2010 World Cup.
According to the reports, these 'other teams' will be easily identifiable by their distinct lack of Englishness, and will supposedly have just as much of an opportunity to win the competition as the Three Lions.
Despite assurances in the British Tabloid press that only England would be permitted to win this year's World Cup, it appears that the tournament will live up to its 'international' reputation by featuring star players from all around the planet, rather than only the familiar English heroes of Emile Heskey and David James.
Information about the other countries competing in the tournament is available from all good news agents. Although it probably isn't.
