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.

Ghana 1-1 Australia

The Aussies were reduced to ten early on again. Why Kewell protested so much at what was a deliberate handball is a bit of a mystery. You've got to take your medicine in those situations and hope the ensuing penalty is blasted miles over the bar.
