    So who's following SA in the World Cup?

    D-day today, if they lose today's game they are out of the world cup, what do you think, will they get through?

    Yip, I think the France problems should hopefully play in our favour, but what happens after that? I don't think they have what it takes to get past the next couple of games.

    as long as we get thru to the final 16

    for every goal mexico goes down, one less we need to score by, so far we need to win by 5.

    its what this country needed, i have been to games and a few more to come

    Lets hope mexico gets a 3-0 whipping, makes Bafana's job easier!
    I think we could win if they Theko Modise out, he misses every good opotunity we get.

    At one stage I hated the Vuvuzela. But since the world cup started, I seem to have taken a liking to that noise maker. :p

    Dude I got a stack of those things lying in my store room, everytime we buy coke from Shoprite, they give you a free one. The reason why I had to hide them away is because, when ever the kids get hold of it, they play some battle game and end up beating each other up. :p

    Besides Bafana's poor performance, i think the World Cup has done wonders for our country,

    many of the tourist here would never have come here for holiday and would never had known what we are about.

    too true. i am not a major soccer fan, and i dont think i ever will be. sure, when played properly it is a game of incredible skill and talent and can be amazing to watch. however, the other part of soccer - the 'playacting' to see how well you can convince the officials that you have been fouled and thus earn your team an advantageous free kick/penalty - im sorry but that's plain cheating. the foul the other day on kaka a case in point - a clear case of deliberately setting up the player to earn him a red card, and thus force him to miss his teams next game.

    having said all that though, this world cup has united our country like nothing else really can.... yes a lot of money has been wasted, or could have been put to better use. i guess there are two sides to everything, there is some bad about this world cup, but a lot of good has come of it as well.
