Wall Chart Offers Rugby Fans Humorous Guide To Soccer World Cup

A frustrated soccer fan has created an irreverent wall chart to help rugby-mad Kiwis enjoy the 2010 football world cup.

Fanatical All Whites supporter, known as "Bobagio", says the poster was created after he couldn't find a decent World Cup wall chart that featured kick-off times in New Zealand.

"There was one I found, on a newspaper site, but it was a bit boring," he says.

The wallchart offers a humorous guide to the cup for New Zealanders who are less familiar with the Beautiful Game.

"This is a wallchart for the whole nation who will spend a week or so being massive All Whites fans." Bobagio says. "Most of them only know about rugby, so there's a little guide to watching soccer, and some little tidbits, ay."

The simple guide to the game includes a description of a football ("round as") and helps Kiwi's new to football wallcharts by inserting the All Whites scores for each game ("0"). "I've also helped by including the All White's kick off times." 

The wall chart, which is posted on Bobagio's website also contains some tongue-in-cheek digs at other finalists, including France ("cheats") and England ("long-ball merchants").

Asked if Kiwis might take offense at his jibes, Bobagio says: "It's not as if I'm having a pop at the All Blacks. Us Kiwi football fans are renowned for our sense of humour... we need one after all!"
