Counting down the hours until the World Cup

bored woman

4:13pm 11th July 2018

As the hours count down to tonight's World Cup match, we're all desperate to leave work!

So much so, many of us have taken to social media to air our concerns about missing kick off.

Here's the best of the bunch!

Safety warnings from the emergency services amid the fun too;

Well if you are still at work and want to look like you're working hard at your computer, how about giving some of these a read?

2BR met with Joyce from Colne who got married on the day of England's last World Cup win in 1966.

We've also been getting updates from Russia as Blackburn fan Paul's currently in Moscow for tonight's match against Croatia.

And if you've got headphones - why not reminisce with some of our top footy anthems over the years?

And finally - find out what's changed since we were last in a World Cup semi-final back in 1990!

That should kill some time!
