Dead wrong in public once again, but at least I admit it.
The Mexicans had the best chances, but South Africa capitalized on their counter attacks. Siphiwe Tshabalala hit a beautiful goal into the far upper corner after a long run and the Mexican goalie had zero chance to stop it. The Mexicans came back to tie, but once it was 1-1, it looked like the South Africans were the team trying to win and the Mexicans the team trying to hold on. A great result for the allegedly over-matched hosts.
The last game of today is France vs. Uruguay. The French have a lot of great players and a truly despised coach. Uruguay is a complete question mark. I have no prediction. I looked bad enough on the first game, I'll wait until tomorrow to pontificate nonsensically on the U.S.A. vs. England match.
