to cover World Cup draw live

It's the World Cup draw on Friday afternoon – and will be covering it live, minute by minute.

We'll be bringing you the group line-ups as soon as Charlize Theron draws the balls from the bowls, plus giving you background insights on the teams, the dangermen, and the stadiums it'll all happen in, amply illustrated with photos and videos.

We'll also be gathering together the worldwide experts who provide our regular blogs, from Madrid to Milan and Sao Paulo to Sydney, Buenos Aires to Berlin and Lisbon to, er, London. 

And we want your views. While the news breaks we'll be putting up polls and monitoring Twitter to gauge your reactions, and you can easily send in your questions and quips – the best will be published immediately.
