FIFA Calls on Twigz to Save World Cup Dreams

June 13th, 2014 | Posted by Boggle in Twigz

Panic spread through the World Cup scene yesterday as news emerged that the pitch for England’s opening group game against Italy, was ‘unsuitable’, and that Saturday’s game may not go ahead.  With less than 48 hours to go, organisers have made a desperate call to turf specialists at Twigz, to help them rescue the grass in time for this high-profile match.

“The players deserve a quality playing surface,” said FIFPro in a statement. “This isn’t the case in Manaus.”

The scorched grass is not what the England team are used to playing on

Groundsmen for the Arena Amazonia in Manaus, Brazil first tried to revive the burned out grass using fertiliser. When this failed they resorted to spraying the grass green in a slap-dash attempt to at least make the grass look nice.

When Wayne Rooney and fellow teammates voiced their concern about playing on a sub-standard pitch and potentially suffering irremovable green paint stains on their nice white shorts, organisers decided it was time to call in the Twigz team.

Twigz were unsure they would have enough time to repair the damage

Renowned for their gardening expertise, high quality tools and swift handiwork, Twigz immediately responded and deployed their very best team in a military-style operation to save the pitch.

The head gardener from Twigz has reported that they have a ‘big job ahead of them and will need all their finest tools to improve the grass’.  Already they have begun with the following tasks:

  • Raking off and removing the existing burned out grass
  • Laying bucket loads of a very special, super fast-growing grass seed that is especially suited to Amazonian climatic conditions
  • Using their tried and tested grass watering method of manually irrigating with watering cans every two hours

Signs of improvement can already be seen as the Twigz team work their magic, watering the grass by hand with mini watering cans

The chief groundsman at Arena Amazonia has admitted that his pitch was in “bad shape” and has shown his appreciation to the Twigz team by supplying them with a never-ending supply of ice creams as they work in the heat to complete their crucial work.

Team members and fans have an anxious wait ahead of them but it looks as though the team of Twigz mini gardeners have saved the day and England will once again have a chance to realise their World Cup Dreams.
