The Telegraph has announced that its World Cup app for the iPhone has clocked up some 143,000 downloads and counting.

The paper says that it’s the third most popular free sports app for the iPhone and iPod touch.

All the latest news from South Africa is delivered by the program, along with expert analysis from the likes of Alan Hansen, Michael Owen and Adrian Chiles.

Integrated Twitter updates from Telegraph football reporters are also included, and the user can pick three favourite teams. The app will send an alert out when any breaking news arrives about said teams (and hopefully, that breaking news won’t be Rooney snapping his ankle in training).

Furthermore, the app doubles as an “interactive wall chart” (if you live in a wendy house, presumably).

You can start following your favourite teams closely by grabbing the free app from the iTunes store.
