Even if you wanted to try and get away from the World Cup hysteria that has stormed the nation in the past few weeks it's looking like you are going to have a tricky challenge on your hand.

Transport for London has announced the news that all football fans will want to hear, live results will be available on Tube platforms for people travelling on the Underground, according to reports.

The transport team has joined forces with ESPNFC to offer this service to the public that will kick off on Thursday as Brazil takes on Croatia.

Scores will roll onto more than 400 update boards in station concourses on the Northern, Bakerloo, Central and Jubilee Lines.

Speaking of the £100, 000 deal ex-England international John Barnes said: “There are often debates about the use of technology in football, but I think everyone will agree this is a good one.”

However, this won’t be good news if you were hoping to completely avoid the World Cup. Thanks to Transport for London you are going to know all the latest scores even if you didn’t want to.

As part of the deal, ESPNFC will bring football freestylers to Stratford, Charing Cross and Tottenham Court Road on Saturday in a bid to raise morale for the team ahead of their match against Italy that evening.

So, it only seems fitting to wish everyone happy travels from tomorrow onwards as the World Cup 2014 prepares to kick off.
