Good thought process. As it was only a bit of fun while we await Bilbo's turn, the answer for those who are interested in in the spoiler below:

Spoiler:
When you place the emphasis on each word in turn, the meaning of the sentence is changed. So "I never said she stole my money" has a different meaning to "I never said she stole my money". Try it with each word and you'll see what I mean.

Sorry for the delay. On the verge of the Football World Cup, a few football related questions;

1. Which USA international has scored most goals for his country?
2. Which Australian international has scored most goals for his country?
3. What team links the two players who are the answers to questions 1 and 2?
4. Who won the very first World Cup in 1930?
5. Which is the only team to have played at every World Cup finals?
6. Name the eight different teams that have won the World Cup.

Good luck!

Yeah, I thought if I'm quick I might score the cheap points. But Belgium, seriously...

True. I have to admit I'm not a great football fan. I just typed down the winners I knew, and miraculously they added up to eight. (And without Bilbo's question I wouldn't even have known that there have been eight winners so far...)

8 quick points for doubleshuffle - all correct bar one quibble over one of the teams you mention above.

Some good guesses (and Belgium), but too late I'm afraid.
