The World Cup slogans are a mess. Argentina's claim to be "not just a team, we are a country" is a mere statement of fact; Belgium's rallying cry of "expect the impossible" has scant regard for logic or good sense; and England's abomination – "The dream of one team, the heartbeat of millions!!" – manages to squeeze two extraneous exclamation marks into a sentence that means nothing.
A few of them are nearly there. "No one can catch us" sums up Russian foreign policy with some accuracy and the deceptively simple Cameroon slogan "a lion remains a lion" will at least give the opposition something to ponder. But most of these are dire. Can you do any better?
Can you improve these 32 slogans? Please
