Elmo didn’t get any joy yesterday when his Egyptian side collapsed in the last minute against Uruguay. Mustafa Hadji and Karim El-Ahmadi found no joy against Iran either. Can Mile Jedinak bring some World Cup joy to the Villa camp with a positive result against France, one of the favourites?

Still, it’s a Villa influence at the World Cup. That’s something to enjoy, and we’ll all be backing Jedi and his boys. Hopefully!
