Hope not. Although it would be a shame to miss England being knocked out in the semis by penalty kicks.

Of course they will. All the hotels in Cuba will be showing the World cup via satellite TV and most will set aside a room with a large screen for England games. They did in 2006 so I'm sure they will in 2010.

Just trying to get my head round time differences. 5hrs?

1500 hrs (BST) = 1000 hrs(CUBA)?

1930 hrs (BST) = 1430 hrs (CUBA)?

or am I wrong?

sad I know but me and Mrs Toongod, went through our tours etc last night ensuring none clashed with England games.

Due to Time Difference

16:00 games are at 10:00

20:30 games are at 14:30

Hope it air conditioned inside.

My buddy owns the local pub that I go to.

He is south african and many many english go watch the saturday games there so I know just about everything whether I want to or not ... LOL

I know the groupings and and that Englands first game is against the US on the 12th.

Gato is going to be watching the Group G games I think ...But Potugal has Brazil and Ivory Coast to contend with in that group.
