Late addition to World Cup squadÃ¢ÂÂ¦
Leading football website FourFourTwo.com has announced that it's added to its World Cup squad Ã¢ÂÂ and unveiled a new-look image just in time for South Africa.
The new Features section collates football's finest analysis and blogs, while adding to the firepower up front with a promising new-boy: The FourFourTwo Lists.
The hulking, swarthy Lists Ã¢ÂÂ already being described as "a dangerously pleasant way to waste time while waiting for the World Cup" Ã¢ÂÂ collates Top 10s like the Best Goals of USA 94 and Best Players of Spain 82, embedded with video players for a boss-annoyingly full package.
FourFourTwo has also called up Talentspotter, its sister site dedicated to rating and slating players, now replete with a World Cup section describing every player in the 32 squads. "TS", as it's known among the squad, now sits alongside the other offerings on the main FourFourTwo.com site.
And although FourFourTwo will continue to bring all the latest news Ã¢ÂÂ via the website, Twitter and Facebook Ã¢ÂÂ it will also provide lighter options during the World Cup with a new Games section.
Among the less serious pursuits on offer are a Top Trumps game Ã¢ÂÂ playable online by one or two players Ã¢ÂÂ and a World Cup Fantasy game. (Those unsure about Cameroon's full-backs are politely pointed at Talentspotter.)
With the latest news now bolstered with serious analysis, dozens of exclusive interviews, discussion-worthy classic videos, wonderful competitions and finger-temptingly fun games, FourFourTwo.com now has a squad capable of challenging for all the honours.
And there's even been a new look created for the World Cup, giving you more options and making it easier to get around the site.
FourFourTwo: making the World Cup better for you.
