Nice surprise to switch on twitter and be greeted by Sky Sports telling me that they're showing games from this year's World Championship - live from Qatar.
Starts today with the hosts playing Brazil - then four more live games tomorrow as we head to the final on February 1.
France, Denmark and Spain are the favourites, with Croatia always being worth an outside punt. Bet365 have Qatar at 16/1, presumably thinking that home advantage will help them out. Chile and Iran are your comedy 5000/1 outsiders.
