Gooooal! Everyone seems to be in on the current World Cup action – even Princes William and Harry are attending a match tomorrow. But what about your pets? You don’t want them missing all the football (or soccer) fun, right?

Thankfully, one British company has unveiled a couple of slightly impractical creations that let your pet show its team pride – if you happen to live across the pond. Notably, there’s the hamster pouch by Pets at Home (about $2), a tiny sleeping bag-like koozie that envelops your littlest pets in the English flag. It’s “a great way to let your hamster celebrate the World Cup and keep him safe and warm,” reads the company’s website.

Other cute Cup-themed items include a “Come on England” dog cap (about $2), dog bones featuring the faces of some famous British footballers (about $2), dog beer and soccer ball-covered collars, beds and more. Too much? Nah – the World Cup only comes around once every four years.
