Keeping up with fervid fans of football can be a chore for the duration of the World Cup, but with the Lazy Commentator's World Cup Info Board, that can all change. It is essentially a comprehensive cheat sheet that can turn people into instant experts on the subject.

Created by a true soccer data expert, Neil Charles, the Lazy Commentator's World Cup Info Board essentially "provides a team-by-team breakdown of all the nations and players participating in the World Cup," write Fast Company. Yet this online tool takes it to the next level by providing a slew of terms that can be used in casual conversations. For instance, click on 19-year-old U.S. prospect Julian Green, and it reads, "Green will be looking to the more experienced members of the squad for guidance."
