Even more from BBC Sport
Fans have plenty to cheer about on BBC Sport

BBC Sport's World Cup website now has even more features.

When this site launched in April it was already the most comprehensive World Cup resource on the web.

Since that opening night when England played Paraguay, we have brought you more news and features as World Cup 2002 approaches fast.

And now, we have added even more to enhance your tournament experience and make it fast, fun and factual.

The additional features come as BBC Sport unveils a bumper package of features on TV, radio and on the BBCi interactive services.

Mini Motty

The new star of the website is multi-talented, about an inch high and wears a sheepskin coat.

Once you discover him, you will not want to be without Mini Motty - throughout the World Cup and beyond.

He will keep you informed of live match action, football news and more, picking up goals from your favourite team and updates from our award-winning team of journalists.

There is also a chance to beat Motty at his own Keepy-Uppy game, while the great man himself commentates on your progress.

And he does not have to be leaping about on the desktop.

If you need to keep him secret from the boss - or the family - then minimise him.

He will still shout out "it's a goal" at the appropriate moment.

Fantasy Golden Boot

Building on the success of our hugely successful, free Fantasy Football Monthly, we now bring you a World Cup game based on goalscorers.

More than 100,000 people played the Premiership game through the season.

The World Cup Fantasy Golden Boot game features the same combination of simplicity and great prizes.

All you have to do is choose the seven players you think will score the most goals during World Cup 2002, then sit back and watch the goals - and points - flow in.

Warrior is coming

The final member of our impressive three-pronged World Cup attack is the World Cup Warrior - a game which is sure to have you completely hooked when it appears soon.

Like all the great productions, World Cup Warrior even has its own cinema-style trailer which is sure to leave you wanting more.

Bookmark the page which contains the trailer - the game will appear there soon.

Already launched

BBC Sport's line-up does not end with these new features.

  • UK users can already sign up for SMS text message reports and features from the BBC, and help the Sport Relief charity at the same time
  • At the same time get the World Cup Daily Email - or add this option to your existing daily BBC Sport or News service

Still to come

If you cannot use Mini Motty to follow the games then BBC Sport Online will also offer four other ways of following live action during the World Cup.

  • Live text "clockwatches" written by our expert team of football journalists - all the action, minute by minute
  • Live scores - the basic facts including goalscorers, bookings and more
  • Simple discreet scores - our Desktop Scoreboard even includes a minimise function allowing you to follow the news in your taskbar
  • Match Talk - follow the scores and talk about the action with fellow fans

Our final new feature will be added just before the tournament - and will bring you a constantly updated listings service of when the action is on BBC TV and radio.

So stay with BBC Sport - you will not miss a kick, a card, an item of team news or anything else that moves in Japan and South Korea.
