World cup player watch delta force paintball

With World Cup fever in full flow, we’re looking back at some of the current crop who are representing and have represented their nations at this year’s prestigious event in Brazil who have visited Delta Force Paintball with their club teams. With so much entertaining football on offer, the 2014 World Cup has been a joy to watch – can it get even better in the final week?

Representing the Magpies at this year’s World Cup is Tim Krul, Louis van Gaal’s secret substitute weapon and penalty hero from the Netherland’s quarter-final match against underdogs Costa Rica, whilst both Moussa Sissoko and Mathieu Debuchy remained in fine form for France during their campaign which saw them eventually come undone by a dogged German side. All three along with their Newcastle teammates visited their local Delta Force Paintball centre last August, preparing for the 2013-2014 Premier League season with an epic team-building session – they finished last season’s campaign in a healthy mid-table place, and we hope our paintball day out helped towards that! Krul would have surely used his paintball-dodging skills towards that fantastic leap he made to save the final penalty…

Another recognisable legend of the English game, Rio Ferdinand, has recently called time at his Old Trafford career and has travelled to the World Cup as a BBC presenter – his old teammate Wayne Rooney did, however, become part of the squad and together they visited the Holmes Chapel Paintball Centre back in 2006, along with other famous faces including Ryan Giggs, fellow pundits Gary and Phil Neville and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. Rio declared that the “place was amazing”; he’s not the first or the last!

Ashley Cole may have missed out on the trip to Brazil and is on the way out of Stamford Bridge, but along with friends and former teammates John Terry and Frank Lampard, he rarely misses the opportunity to get involved in some epic paintball matches: check out the picture below of the guys visiting the Cobham Paintball Centre in 2008, one of our many London-based venues that operate around the capital. Whilst Terry and Cole watched England fail to progress from the group stages at the comfort of their homes, Lampard was indeed part of the squad that travelled with manager Roy Hodgson, only to see the nation’s hopes dashed after just three games - Luis Suarez had a big say (and bite) in doing so!
