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.

South Africa 0-3 Uruguay

The stewards are on strike. Fans were streaming to the exits with a quarter of an hour to play in this one. South Africa seem to be the hosts with the most problems. They're not going to make it to the knockout phase on the evidence of this, though they're not out of it yet the mathematicians will say. But this was a toothless performance, as toothless as they nearly left a Uruguayan striker after a second half clash. Whatever tactics were being employed by South Africa didn't work. The home side didn't look like scoring. The Uruguayans looked like they wanted it more, which surely wasn't the case. Maybe SA wanted it too much. They'll be SAD tonight.
