I didn't say by hand, but if there were certain situations like the one 
you mention where a particular recording you know you wanted was going 
to get bumped by the scheduler, you could override that  behavior before 
the fact to get the results you want.  I think the "Reschedule higher 
priority" option will do what you want but you could also achieve this 
effect I believe by making the world cup your highest priority recording 
so that it doesn't lose out to other programs. 

Also, I think if you unselect "check for duplicates" in the recording 
schedule for the world cup, it will record any and all showings 
regardless of whether it was already seen which could help with your 
scheduling as it would never opt not to record a world cup showing 
because it was already recorded but depending on your # of tuners, you 
might get too many conflicts from repeat showings.
