The World Cup isn't for everyone. Although the majority of jisp are avid England supporting, foam finger wearing  enthusiasts - we are all aware of the many hours the World Cup can claim over the next few months, especially for those uninterested in football. Program schedules are interrupted, pubs are busier and  family film time on a Thursday evening  changes to watching Robbie Williams perform 20-year-old songs with a Russian Opera singer. Whether you like, love, or loathe the World Cup, here are 9  distractions  available on the high street!


9. Game of Scones – Debenhams – £10.99

‘The struggle for the Iron Scone has begun..’ Is the anticipation for Game of Thrones becoming too much? This is the perfect filler to keep you away from the World Cup. All men must dine.

8. Love Island Clothing Range - Primark – Various £££

You either love or hate Love Island, there is no in between. It's that time of the year that the office is full of bizarre quotes that just don't make sense, the mention of names you wish you never knew, and a heated conversation between the nay-sayers and Love Island enthusiasts. If you are a true fan, the 2018 range is a perfect opportunity to show your love every day, not just at 9pm.
