World Cup Teams 2014: Commentator's Go-To Stat
Wear green, paint face: supporters of the Desert Foxes seem especially keen on the greasepaint. Favourite chant is “One, two, three, viva Algerie!”
Be an attractive woman in a tight football T-shirt, wear a Diego mask or get a blue and white top hat.
Shorts (longer for formal wear). Shirt optional. Beer essential.
One of those skullcap helmets with the horns in red and yellow is a must. Bring a lot of red balloons.
Blue and yellow are the order of the day. Support of team has been a major touchstone of new nation’s identity.
Better get in that gym first. Bikinis for the ladies. Never really noticed what the male fans are wearing.
Get your top off and get yourself painted red, green and gold. Among the tournament’s most paint-friendly fans.
If internet image searching is a reliable indicator, by wearing a pointy hat (men) and not much more than a bra (women).
Big tall hats in the country’s yellow, blue and red colours. Carlos Valderrama wigs also go down well.
Slip on a poncho and make it rain with ticker tape. Look unimpressed if anyone asks you the way to San Jose.
Find your nearest greasy spoon cafe and nick all the red-and-white chequered tablecloths.
Contrary to popular myth, Panama hats actually hail from [country], and flamboyant headgear is an integral part of the [country] fan’s garb.
Head-to-toe Jacamo for the guys, baggy T-shirt and jeans for the girls.
[countrymen] fans have perfected the art of dressing as colourfully and extravagantly as they can whilst maintaining an expression of perfect glumness.
Heidi pigtails for the ladies, sensible casual wear for the gentlemen. Rudi Voller moustache optional.
Lots and lots of paint. Face paint, body paint, hair paint. As a rule of thumb, if your friends can still recognize you, apply more paint.
Togas, centurion helmets, sandals and shields are the order of the day. [country] fans won’t be complaining about the heat.
A penchant for face paint makes many fans look like a cross between the Blue Man Group and Kiss.
Green. White, Red. Everywhere. Your face, your hands, your clothes, your hair. Get it on there.
Almost impossible for an outsider to look like one so instead try & behave like one-basically overreact to every single incident, wave hands in air & look to heavens in disgust
Head-to-toe white body paint, sunglasses and an elaborate hand-carved elephant-head mask. Pretty straightforward really.
Women dress as geishas, men as sumo wrestlers. Everyone carries hand fans. Crank the enthusiasm up to 11.
For men: sombreros, face-paint, [country] wrestling masks. For women: often not an awful lot.
Head-to-toe in orange. If you don’t look like you’ve been Tango-ed, don’t even bother showing up.
Green & white face-paint, g & w Harpo Marx wigs, g & w clothes. Think Plymouth Argyle or retro, spearmint-flavoured, sickly confectionery, Pacers, formerly Opal Mints.
Red, green or gold vests, Glastonbury-style jester’s hats and acres of cotton wool to drown out the sound of the weapon with the bass drum.
Oligarch chic — £500,000 watches, no ties, pale blue shirts, stubble and the keys to your dreadnought-size yacht jingling in your bodyguard’s trousers.
Red and blue Taeguks face-painted on to cheeks, red shirts, pockets full of Lockets for the inevitable sore throats from all the screaming.
Pastel cashmere jumper slung around the shoulders Style Council-style, eternally sockless and with Ray Bans doubling as Alice band or red shirts, wineskins and comedy matador hats.
Hen party red stetson, stars, stripes, Uncle Sam costumes, khaki “pants” and tears to profess love of the “Ewe Ess Ay, Ewe Ess Ay, Ewe Ess Ay”.
Skyblue shirt, usual faces daubed up as flags, comedy tophats with proudly beaming sun emblem, the kind you would see on Tshirts at a 5am Hampshire field during an 89 Sunrise rave.
