This may seem slighly odd, but here goes. I just moved into a huge apartment which allows me more room for my treasured foosball table. The problem is that I'm in an extremely crafty mood and the foosball table is a little bland. My grand solutions is to make the table a representation of either a historic non-helmet football game or a long-standing rivalry. My only prerequisites are that the team logo's/flags are relatively simple so that they are easy to duplicate and that they are from either international or Premiership play. Any ideas?

I'm currently leaning towards Germany/Brazil as the 2002 WC finalists, but I'm a little leary of painting Brazil's flag by hand. (sorry I knocked you off the front page, WC2002 and wfrazerjr).

England vs Germany should do it. Easy flags and one of he longest running hate/hate relationships in football.

No prob, ttrendel. This is an intriguing post. I also hope you'll join us when the new SpoFi EPL Fantasy League starts up.

Holland and Germany if you want hate / hate. Leeds and Real Madrid would be good.

I think I'm leaning towards England/Germany. Thanks, squealy. Brazil is definitely out after I realized how hard it is to paint Ronaldinho across the back of one of the miniature players. I'll have to post up some pics after I finish airbrushing each side of the case with the respective flags.
