England are in Group D with Uruguay, Costa Rica and Italy.

Important note - thanks to huge demand our supply of hard copies has now run out.

There will be copies available in Brazil for any travelling fans who have missed out, but in the meantime you can download a digital version absolutely free of charge in a range of formats.

What format is best for me? 

The guidebook is available in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats. Download the EPUB file for use on your iPad, Sony Reader, iPhone, Kobo, Nook, BeBook, Desktop Computer and other eBook Readers. The MOBI format gives the best results on Amazon Kindle, while the PDF is suitable for computer/laptop reading and requires Acrobat Reader, a free plug-in.
