Johannesburg – JSC

 WHAT a way to open the World Cup. The noise of the crowd was awesome and the play was nonstop. Tshabalala’s goal was excellent, but South Africa’s defence let the side down when Mexico equalised. South Africa hit the post late on, but they have impressed the world and shouldn’t be overlooked on their home turf.

Zakumi: “Oh but for the width of a post.”

P92: “You guys did much better than I thought, and what a goal to open the tournament with.”

Zakumi: “Bring on the rest!”

Cape Town

 NOT a great game to watch, but both sides did create chances. Nicolás Lodeiro was sent off after a poor tackle on Bacary Sagna with ten minutes to go. Both sides must up their game if they wish to have any impact on the knock-out stages.

Zakumi: “We can have these two judging by this game.”

P92: “Don’t get too confident mate, but I can see your point.”

Tomorrows games are:

  • South Korea vs. Greece, ITV 12:30
  • Argentina vs. Nigeria, BBC 1 15:00
  • ENGLAND vs. U.S.A., ITV 19:30
