FIFA has announced the winning slogans that will appear on the buses for each of the 32 teams at the World Cup in Brazil. As you might expect from a competition with a corporate tie-in, they are underwhelming at best and bad enough to hope the players walk to every game at worst. So, we've compiled a list of alternatives that the participating nations will hopefully keep in their hearts.

ALGERIA

Real slogan: "Desert warriors in Brazil."

Alternative slogan: "You think it's hot here? That's cute..."

Real slogan: "Not just a team, we are a country."

Alternative: "We're here to pee in your punch bowl, Brazil."

AUSTRALIA

Real slogan: "Socceroos: hopping our way into history!"

Alternative: "Socceroos: Hopefully our cutesy nickname lulls you into a false sense of confidence so we can maybe take a point."

BELGIUM

Real slogan: "Expect the impossible!"

Alternative: "Yep, he plays for us too."
