Italy has won the final of the "Real" World Cup 2006 but the Ultimate Online World Cup Battle is still being contested...

Congratulations to Italy after their victory over France in today's World Cup final in Berlin. "Forza Italia!" ;-)

The "real" World Cup is now over but the Ultimate Online World Cup Battle will go on. Continue to support your favourite team and push the online ranking of your nation on the way to the next World Cup in 2010!

On the day of the World Cup final 2006 the online Top 10 nations were as follows with about 400,000 total fan goals scored:

1 Australia 14.7 %
2 Germany 14.7 %
3 Poland 10.9 %
4 England 9.9 %
5 France 7.8 %
6 USA 6.9 %
7 Ukraine 4.0 %
8 CŰte d'Ivoire 4.0 %
9 Netherlands 3.2 %
10 Brazil 3.2 %

Congratulations to Australia who was battling hard against Germany for the last days. The title of the current World Champion was changing every day between those two but at the time when the World Cup 2006 final had finished, Australia was in the lead by 68 goals. Congratulations to their interim Online World Championship Title! Germany missed the interim title by only a few goals but they are the "World Champions of the hearts" anyway ;-)

However, the battle will go on and you can still push your team to the top! Show which nation has the best football fans!!! Is it your flag that is shown in the current World Champion spot? It's up to you to score goals for your nation...

You can check the current ranking of all nations here.

We wish you a lot of fun on FlagTheDonkey.com - even after the World Cup 2006 final !!!

The "Real" World Cup 2006 has just started today and over 200,000 goals have been score already...

The World Cup 2006 has started today in Germany. Yeah!!!

"Jetzt geht's looooos!!!" ...that was German for: "It has started" ;-)

We saw a great opening match and Germany had a really good start into the tournament. Congratulations!!! But right in time Germany also took the lead in the Ultimate World Cup Battle online. Breaking the 200,000 goals barrier the German fans have shot their nation to the top position and replaced Poland as the current World Champion. Poland has lost its first real match against Ecuador. Is this symptomatic?

We don't want to go that far but now the time has started your teams need the most support. Help your nations to score goals online! Which country has the best football fans? Invite your friends to prove it...

The online fan battle has become really close again. Check the current ranking of your nation and shoot till you drop!

The World Cup has just started and the thrill is getting bigger and bigger. In the stadiums, in front of the TVs, on the streets and online on FlagTheDonkey.com...

We wish all countries a great tournament! Good luck!!!

The Ultimate World Cup Battle is getting ultimately exciting!!!

It's thrilling to watch how the World Champion is changing almost every hour on FlagTheDonkey.com!

This morning Mexico was in the lead, but in the afternoon the other nations came back and pushed their teams to the top. The Netherlands were the top team for quite a while but then things changed every hour... The donkey started to get a bit confused for who he should score the goals with all those different players around the world but he managed to concentrate and not to shoot in the wrong direction ;-)

A leading group of 5 nations had established and at the end of the day the current percentages of goals were as follows:

1. Netherlands 11.7 %
2. Germany 11.7 %
3. England 11.6 %
4. Mexico 10.9 %
5. France 10.2 %

You can check here for the complete ranking list of all nations.

Thanks to all the participating fans out there FlagTheDonkey.com has become a very exciting website and we are curious how it will go on. Keep on supporting your teams as you did today... That's what we call real football fans!!!

It's time to go to bed now after this tough day and the donkey needs to relax a bit as well.

See you tomorrow...

This is how it all started...

We have launched our website today and the donkey is very impatient to score goals!!!

We are two soccer fans from Berlin who wanted to create a new exciting idea in the context of this yearís World Cup. Michael works for a Marketing Service Company and Marcel just graduated from university.

We had the idea of FlagTheDonkey.com on a very special Sunday afternoon in the beginning of April 2006... ;-) The whole concept just popped into our minds. We quickly found a team of friends, who were fascinated by our idea as well and decided to help us. Time was running fast towards the World Cup 2006 and we had to work hard during our spare time after work to get the low-budget project going. About one month later FlagTheDonkey.com was born...

We are very curious about how much you all out there like it! Letís make FlagTheDonkey.com go round the world and be something very special in World Cup history.

If you should have any questions, please check out our FAQ or feel free to contact us. You may also register for our newsletter to get updated on whatís happening on the website.

Thanks for Flagging the Donkey! Be real fans and have fun!!!
