To get fans involved before the World Cup begins on June 12th in Brazil, FIFA held an online vote to decide the slogans for the 32 teams at this year's competition, which will be printed on each team's bus. Thanks, surely, to the work of rival nations' saboteurs, here is a list (in alphabetical order) of the ten worst ones.

"SOCCEROOS: HOPPING OUR WAY INTO HISTORY!"

Almost as sincere and encouraging as "G'day Sheilas, let's put another shrimp on the barbie!" Personally, I would've gone for "CONVICTS, ASSEMBLE!"

"PREPAREM-SE! O HEXA ESTÁ CHEGANDO!"
"BRACE YOURSELVES! THE 6TH IS COMING!"

Brace yourselves: apparently Brazil loves Game of Thrones.

"MI PASIÓN EL FÚTBOL, MI FORTALEZA MI GENTE, MI ORGULLO COSTA RICA"
"MY PASSION IS SOCCER, MY STRENGTH IS MY PEOPLE, MY PRIDE IS COSTA RICA"

My passion is soccer, my strength is American tourism, my pride is Costa Rica.

"COLORIAMO D'AZZURRO IL SOGNO MONDIALE"
"LET'S PAINT THE FIFA WORLD CUP DREAM BLUE"

サムライよ ! 戦いの時はきた !
"SAMURAI, THE TIME HAS COME TO FIGHT!"

What? Is Japan going to kill people? Has anyone checked if they brought swords with them? Someone needs to check. Check their socks maybe.

즐겨라, 대한민국!
"Enjoy it, Reds!"

In other words, "We're really just happy to be here."

"END STATION: 13.07.2014 MARACANA!"
"FINAL STOP: 07-13-14 MARACANA!"

A.K.A. "Above all else, we really value punctuality."

"UNITED BY TEAM, DRIVEN BY PASSION"

Not many people know that the American bus driver's name is Passion T. Johnson. And yes, aside from driving the team bus, he's also a porn star.
