The 24th is the better option in terms of the world cup schedule.? Matches start at 9pm BKK time so we should be finished by then anyway but if it goes on later than that it's Solvakia v Italy and Paraguay v New Zealand so its not a total disaster for football lovers to miss the start of those games, unless of course anyone is a citizen of any of those nations.
There is the possibility of a 2nd round fixture of Italy v Netherlands on the? 28th at 9pm depending on how they both fare in the group stage which would be an attractive fixture not to be missed.
Of course we all know England will win the world cup anyway but its interesting to see the other teams spend a month toiling in the sun for it all to be in vain in the end :-)
