Inside your Weekend Express & Star

Soccer, samba and, err, Sturridge - welcome to World Cup Weekend.

From the Wolves-mad local girl who upped sticks to Rio to chats with Lineker, Dixon and Chiles, we've got more footballing goodness than Stevie Bull blowing a vuvuzela.

We've got every fact, stat and big name you need when it comes to the world's greatest sporting event. There's an in-depth look at the TV coverage, a look back at the 1966 final and features on Three Lions, Escape to Victory, Match of the Day and Fifa.

Editor Keith Harrison looks back at 10 things he misses from "proper" World Cups and all the travel, fashion, home and food pages have a Brazilian twist.

But if you're a football widow, fear not, we've got a survival guide including the best alternative events when all the big games are on and also a list of at-home spa treatments.

On the sport pages, former Cameroon international Roger Milla takes centre stage and talks reuniting with Gazza.

Don't miss it. We've gone Brazil nuts.
