The World Cup cometh

The FIFA World Cup (awarded 1974–Present)Image via Wikipedia
Taking a look at a little booklet about the FIFA World Cup (not other lesser sports), I thought I'd check if there was any chance of following England's progress. In fact it's looking quite good. (please check with other guides before finalising your arrangements!)

The 3 games we can be sure of are:
  • England v USA. Sat June 12 @ 7-30pm
  • England v Algeria. Fri June 18 @ 7-30pm
  • England v Slovenia. Wed June 23 @ 3pm
If England win group C, the next game is Sat June 26 @ 7-30pm
If England are 2nd, the next game is Sun June 27 @ 3pm

Ok then it gets complicated if you're optimistic enough to think we might get this far. I think the following is correct, but please correct me if it's not.

If they play on Saturday and win, the 1/4 final would be on Friday July 2 @ 7-30pm.
If they play on Sunday and win, the 1/4 final would be on Saturday July 3 @ 3pm.

The July 2 match leads to a semi-final on July 6 at 7-30pm
The July 3 match leads to a semi-final on July 7 at 7-30pm

The World Cup Final is Sunday July 11 at 7-30pm. Should be back from Evening Prayer. Dream on...

It's worth noting that some churches are planning to show the final live as part of their Sunday evening service. I think that's certainly worth a shout, and I'm sure we could arrange that for you technically.
