As the World Cup sambas its way toward the final two games of the competition, we'll soon arrive at that awkward slump in the year where domestic football is yet to get started and striking up conversation with male strangers borders on impossible. It's at moments such as this you'll wish you had one of these under your arm.
This is the flat pack cardboard football table that Ikea wishes they'd thought of first. Fully portable, without need for glue or screws, the table even folds down into a box for easy transportation to your next game.
Players line up in the familiar 2-5-3 formation, with added details including beer holders (we're not sure how well the cardboard stands up to spills) and passive phone speakers (they make your mobile a little bit louder).
We've no idea how long it takes to put together, but the instruction manual doesn't appear to be too lengthy. Just watch yourself for paper cuts, and try to avoid kicking it in fits of passion if you want it to last into August. You can pick one up for £79.99 from Firebox.
