If you own a Google Home or Google Home Mini, you can amuse yourself by asking it a series of questions about the beautiful game. Just don’t expect especially insightful (or non-sarcastic) responses.

Below is a list of Easter Eggs that are currently live on the Home and Home Mini:

  • Is football coming home?
  • Do you like football?
  • Who’s your favourite football player?
  • Give me a football ritual
  • Give me a football chant
  • What country will you be rooting for in the game?
  • I don’t care about the World Cup
  • My team just lost the game
  • Who do you think has the best style in the World Cup?
  • What are you doing for the World Cup?
  • My team is now playing in the World Cup
  • Do you know any soccer expressions?
  • Do you have any good football tactics?
  • What do you think will happen this World Cup?
  • Who do you think will win the World Cup?
  • Tell me a fact about football

If you’re really bored, you can go through all of the queries above multiple times − Google says there are “a few responses” for most of the Easter Eggs.
