i will be leaving england on the 19 june, i will therefore miss england last group game and any further games, i am going to thiland and the time difference means some games could be around 2-3 am, will they be shown in thailand and will there be somewhere to watch it? anyone in the same boat?

From what I have heard, the bars in Thailand have been given special permission to stay open to show the later time World Cup matches. Don't worry I would bank on nearly all bars showing the matches, the Thai's love their football (you can't get away from Premiership football when it's on!).

All matches are being shown on True cable network and in dual language commentary too. Most bars will probably advertise the fact they are showing matches too, so don't worry!

Never fear, you can watch more football inThailand than pretty much any country in the world - It is awesome ... I remember one Saturday watching 6 premiership games at once in a bar while my mates at home could only listen on the radio LOL

Omg, can I just say that I love all you European footballers, worried about being to watch the World Cup on vacation! We lack that kind of devotion here in the States. Right on!
