The World Cup started on the 9th of June. If we take discussion found in online content (blogs, boards and usenet), we can determine the increase in discussion about a country/team comparing the time period before the competition started with that from the start to now. The graphic below maps these changes. One can clearly see Ghana has acheived the highest increase (4.4 times its pre-start volume). England is the country with the lowest increase (1.5 times).
The data compares the time period from May 1st 2006 to June 8th 2006 with June 9th 2006 to June 26th 2006.
