World Cup Venn: Day 27

World of Sport

Welcome to World Cup Venn!

 From today onwards, all the questions will refer to the 2010 World Cup finals rather than relying on a trawl through the archives.

But the question will remain the same: who are these three teams, and what is the World Cup link between them?

We'll give out the answer at half-time in the matchcast of Wednesday's semi-final between  Germany and Spain.

 Yesterday's World Cup Venn gave you a slightly different question.

The 'players' were Italy's Roberto Baggio and America's Diana Ross.

And the answer? Both missed penalties at the 1994 World Cup.

Baggio missed the crucial final penalty in the shoot-out at the Rose Bowl that decided the final against Brazil, while Ross failed to hit the target from 12 yards during the opening ceremony at Chicago's Soldier Field.
