The World Cup hot dogs

Now that the World Cup is officially here, your focus will naturally be on football for the next month.

But there are other important things to consider. Aside from work and sleep and all that, you also need to think about what you'll be eating during the many games.

Fitzrovia's champagne and hot dog joint Bubbledogs has come up with a smartly constructed set of dogs that are neatly linked to some of the different countries involved in the tournament. No Bosnia though, we're afraid.

They're available now until the final and you can find more information here.

Here's the full list:

• England – the ‘Breakie Dog’

Crispy bacon, tomato relish, black pudding bits and a whole fried egg

New potato slices, beer-pickled onions, melted raclette cheese and mini-cornichons
