You'd probably have to do it via a laptop or desktop then after resizing the picture via Photoshop (or MS Paint, I guess).

You might be able to upload it to photobucket from your phone. You'd need to register for an account if you don't have one already, but the site lets users resize images after uploading and also offers image links to make it easier to post to forums and such.

Hmmm. Those didnt come out the way I expected them to.

The twitter links here and here show some rather spiffy buses for these two women's teams.
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

World Cup bus slogans. Korea's is especially weak, whilst everyone else is hopping on their way to victory or painting the World Cup blue, the Koreans are turning up merely to "enjoy it". Fuck that, Syngman Rhee had the right idea when he told the team not to bother coming back from a game against Japan if they didn't win. "Win it or fuck off, Reds" would be a far better motivational slogan.

Algeria: Desert Warriors In Brazil

Argentina: Not just a team, we are a country

Australia: Socceroos: Hopping Our Way Into History!

Belgium: Expect The Impossible!

Bosnia and Herzegovina: Dragons In Heart, Dragons On The Field!

Brazil: Brace Yourselves! The 6th Is Coming!

Cameroon: A lion remains a Lion

Chile: Go Chile

Colombia: Here travels a nation, not just a team!

Costa Rica: My passion is football, my strength is my people, my pride is Costa Rica.

Côte d'Ivoire: Elephants charging towards Brazil!

Croatia: With Fire In Our Hearts, For Croatia All As One!

Ecuador: One Commitment, One Passion, Only One Heart, This Is For You Ecuador!

England: The Dream Of One Team, The Heartbeat Of Millions!!

France: Impossible Is Not A French Word

Germany: One Nation, One Team, One Dream!

Ghana: Black Stars: Here To Illuminate Brazil

Greece: 'Heroes Play Like Greeks'

Honduras: We are one country, one nation, five stars on the heart

Iran: Honour Of Persia

Italy: Let’s paint the FIFA World Cup dream blue

Japan: Samurai, The Time Has Come To Fight!

Korea Republic: Enjoy it, Reds!

Mexico: Always united, Always aztecas

Netherlands: Real Men Wear Orange

Nigeria: Only Together We Can Win

Portugal: The past is history. The future is victory.

Russia: No one can catch us

Spain: Inside our hearts, the passion of a champion

Switzerland: End Station: 13.07.2014 Maracana! Final Stop: 07-13-14 Maracana!

Uruguay: Three million dreams … Let’s go Uruguay

USA: United By Team, Driven By Passion

Weak, but still a notch above Chile's.
Brazil's... they seem certain that they will win. Talk of adding to the pressure (as if there wasn't enough of it already).

Disappointed by Switzerland's inability to commit to a consistent date format.

Compared to the rest, Chile's is actually quite good.

A few of them are actually alright. Algeria's and Japan's, anyways.

Chile's is great!

The African ones are all really good. A sign of a good world cup for African teams? Start with a good slogan and you can't go wrong!

Korea's is mince though. How did they decide and why did they not consult us?

I'm still surprised the Germans get away with stuff like that.

Similar things appear on mainstream election posters and no one bats an eyelid. Maybe it's just me.

I totally agree, we'd be awesome at picking a suitable slogan. :smt083

It's good of you to notice things like that but I personally don't see anything wrong with the German slogan in this case.
Neither 'nation', nor 'team', nor 'dream' carry the same sting of Volk / Reich / Führer. There isn't the same synergy
either. It's a simplistic slogan and something you can see an ordinary fan of any of the competing nations coming up
with.

A close association with, say Deutschland über alles would be a concern however.

As for Chile's slogan, in the light of what some of you have written I will do a U-turn and admit that Chile's is not the worst.
It's not the length of the slogan, it's how you use it. And admittedly Chile's is a lot less cheesy than many others. As for Korea,
I guess the questions of enjoyment should only be addressed once the act is done.

Maybe the bus slogan sounds worse in German, I heard it first on the TV this morning, but it is a very well known phrase and if I were German, I wouldn't want them using it for my team bus. There's this whole carry on in Germany of people, often football fans, wanting to do or say things that are illegal but doing it in slightly subtle ways, so that it isn't clearly illegal but the meaning is still clear. The respectable part of Germany should steer well clear of that by avoiding anything that looks even remotely similar. I don't know who came up with the slogan, whether the German FA, or FIFA or Hyundai, but I would want something else if I was German. They're already getting stick for covering up the "for fascists" bit of the "No football for fascists" sign at FC St Pauli for the friendly against Poland tonight. http://www.stern.de/sport/fussball/wm-2014/antifaschistisches-banner-abgehaengt-dfb-aktion-empoert-fans-2110271.html

It is a linguistic pattern you could use in many languages, but it crops up a lot in German for some reason. Maybe it just rolls off the tongue as they say. I remember this woman running for mayor in Potsdam for a very respectable party.

It seems a bit careless, which with these things it's probably best to err on the side of caution. Other countries do do it as well, so there is that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piF_2PQSkBM. But I'm not the only one who was immediately reminded of something else http://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2014/05/13/op-het-wk-heeft-duitsland-straks-ein-land-eine-mannschaft-und-ein-traum/ (site in Dutch).

Don't get me started on Deutschland über alles.


EDIT: Apparently fans made the suggestions and voted on the winner. Fucking great.

The Guardian website says that Chile's is actually the infinitely better and much more in keeping with the whole catchphrasing philosophy "Chi Chi Chi!, Le Le Le! Go Chile".

That is my new favourite.

Actually on the Guardian's list the Swiss one doesn't have "End Station" and only has the "Final stop" line. That would be disappointing as the different date formats show they've really bought into the whole catchphrasing thing...
