I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

7th: GHANA

Ah, Ghana, dear dear Ghana. You should not be out so soon. You dominated against Uruguay. You deserved your win. Your place in history as the first African team to make the semis. You went for it. You showed skill. Maturity. Defensive solidity. You were the pride of Africa. You were a crossbar's width away from still being in. You were the victims of the 'hand of God' 21st Century style. You put your country on the map. You made the World Cup exciting. You will be the first African team to win the World Cup. You know it.
