Ok here is the WC thread but I am sorry for the title. It is the best I can come up with. LOL First up at around 9:45am Toronto time is Mexico vs South Africa. unfortunately Mandela will not be there because of the recent death of his great granddaughter. Condolences to him and his family.

There is a special on Robin Island on CBC right now, and how the prisoners loved the play football/soccer.

The driver of the car which overtuned and killed Zenani Mandela has been charged with drunk driving and may be charged with culpable homicide. Zenani turned 13 on June 9th, and as a result of this tragedy Mandela will not be at the opening game.

Scoreless at the half. Such manners. Nobody wants to be the first to score for '10.

enquiring minds want to know ... who's arizona rooting for this game?

Giovanni Dos Santos is really good; lots of potential in that kid.

Final score: 1-1
South Africa really deserved the win, IMO. That post hit will haunt Mphela for a while. Mexico was messy - their defense sucks & their goalkeeper is a complete joke. They really should've put in Chicharrito & Blanco earlier; they really made a difference in the last part of the second half.
