The best World Cup venues for fans of all national teams
Octoberfest Pub, Fulham, London
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Expect more than 60 German beers, bratwursts, oompah bands, lederhosen and envy-inducing
displays of footballing competence.
2. Saudi Arabia
Geese & Fountain, Grantham, Leicestershire
With Saudi being a dry country, it might seem fitting to watch with a glass of something soft. The Geese is recommended by teetotal pub-crawlers Club Soda for its range of alcohol-free beers and sparkling presses
The Old Red Lion Theatre Pub, Clerkenwell, London
Established as a Belgium supporters' pub, this is the place to come to cheer on Eden Hazard et al with a fine selection of beers.
4. South Korea
The New Malden, Pusan, South Korea
OK, so it's a long way to go for a pint and some fish & chips, but if you're after a British pub vibe with a bunch of South Koreans going crazy, this place will be tough to beat. Even if they haven't quite hit the nail on the head with the whole British pub name thing.
The Rose of Denmark, Charlton, London
A staunchly Charlton Athletic pub during the domestic season, The Rose welcomes supporters of all stripes, even putting up photos of away fans on its walls.

The Rye, Peckham, London
A pub that takes its sport seriously, with a big screen and a big garden, in the middle of the UK's biggest Nigerian neighbourhood. Expect fireworks here when the Super Eagles face Argentina on June 26 – a rematch of the 2014 group game in which the Nigerians narrowly lost a five-goal thriller.
The Carpenters Arms, Ascot, Berkshire
Run by French expats with a Michelin-star background, the Carpenters can offer an authentic French menu along with a traditional
lounge bar and sports TV. Allez, allez!
The Alexandra, Clapham, London
Nestled in the heart of Aussie expat-land, with seven big screens, there's bound to be a bonzer atmosphere in here when the Socceroos take on France on June 16. With a sport-obsessed nation still reeling from the discovery their cricket team are a bunch of cheats, will salt be rubbed into the wound?
The Belvedere, Acton, London
A Mecca for Polish sport fans and the venue for the I Love Polish Party, there will surely be an entirely wholesome kind of Pole dancing here if the White Eagles can claim a win.
The Famous 3 Kings, Fulham, London
How many Panama fans are there in the UK? To find out, head here for their game v England on June 24th – the award-winni
