The team buses at the World Cup may be adorned with some bizarre slogans. Each nation’s shortlist of three messages has been selected. The decision is now down to votes from fans. The options for England’s bus are “Send us victorious”; “Drive forward as one”; and “Pride. Passion. Together”. None of these is likely to raise a laugh, but Panama could end up with “More than a dream, more than a canal. Panama is here to play”. Brazil’s shortlist includes “The nation of soccer cleats” – “cleats” meaning “studs”. One of Egypt’s options is “When you say Pharaohs, the world must get up and listen”. The Pharaohs is the team’s nickname. Senegal could have “Roar to the sound of the balafon”, which refers to a xylophone. One of Japan’s alternatives says “Fly like a dragon! Be win!” and mentions the national flag, the Hinomaru. Football’s world governing body FIFA has released the shortlists. All nominations came from fans. The tournament in Russia starts on June 14. England boss Gareth Southgate hopes his team stay long enough for their slogan’s paint to dry.
