Where to watch the World Cup in Toronto, by allegiance

So you want to watch your favourite soccer team beat their rivals in the World Cup, but without the pesky cheers from their fans. What's a Torontonian to do?

Luckily, thanks to the city's numerous neighbourhoods (that aren't shy about putting their preferences right on their street signs), it's relatively easy to find a place to watch the game among friends, no matter the time of day (or night).

While some areas are completely taken over by the games (we're looking at you, College Street), others are wonderful little pockets of football fever for the duration of the games, from its start on June 12 to the final on July 13.

Check out this list of places to watch World Cup games, by country, in Toronto, where they'll hopefully be serving geographically appropriate drinks and food. Did we forget your favourite watering hole? Let us know and we'll add it in (unless, of course, you want it to remain your secret).
