JPN 1 CMR 0: Three haiku

Count to thirty-eight:
Honda’s left foot brings warmth in
Bloemfontein winter.

Cameroon must know
defeat means more than a win:
Cold days lie ahead.

A match of no fire:
Losers and winners both score
on Gubbometer.

World Cup Gubbometer

1=. Algeria: 1
Cameroon: 1
France: 1
Japan: 1
1=. Slovakia: 1
1=. Uruguay: 1
7=. Everybody else: 0

(NB. Teams are awarded one point every time they take part in a game so mind-numbingly tedious that it would almost certainly have been last on Match of the Day had it been a Premier League fixture. There are no other rules.)
