The BBC will broadcast all its World Cup games live on broadband, it has announced.

The adventures of Wayne “Roo” Rooney, David “Becks” Beckham, Frank “Lamps” Lampard, and Michael “Michael” Owen, and other nations' top footballists will be available for UK users' desktop delectation when the tournament starts next week.

The stream will carry the same commentary as the Corporation's over-air broadcasts. The Beeb will be restricting the service to licence fee payers in the UK however.

They'll be four-minute highlights for every single game too, which will be available on-demand.
