    If it was a world cup finals game it would very likely be sold out imo. Hell, even if it was just a qualifier or a friendly it would probably sell out. The warm up game against Mexico a few weeks back was nearly a sell out as well iirc.

    Two minnows playing...well, not so sure. But a world cup game, attendances should usually be very high no matter who is on show really.

    A lot of ticket holders ended up stuck in traffic apparently.

    An England WC game in England - would it sell out? Is that a real question?

    As for two minnows, hmmm, I reckon it would. Can't remember many spare seats at Euro 96.

    South Africa vs Mexico match pretty good to watch..... Not the precision passing etc of top players but still was exciting to watch.

    France vs Urguay was pretty boring..... fell a sleep sometimes during the 2nd half....

    Is free booze on offer or not?

    Because otherwise I don't think a league minnow vs minnow match would ever fill in a neutral location.

    Terrible matches all yesterday. If England fails to beat USA by atleast a margin of 3 goals, I will stop watching this WC till knockouts.

    It would here I think, unless it was played at an 80-90K venue.

    When the Olympics were here in 2000, the European Handball and Synchronised Swimming sold out ffs.

    Don't be so sure. You can't drink in the seats at English footy anyway,

    And there aren' really 'minnows' in the WC

    Euro 96 didn't sell out everywhere, contrary to my earlier post, but I think if it was a World Cup they'd fill up, footy attendances are generally higher than they were in 1996 anyway.

    Would have NZ & North Korea in that bracket, myself. Although NZ games would probs sell out anyway cos of the expats.

    The France Uruguay match was sold out, as is every match in Cape Town, not sure why the stadium wasn't full.

    Would suck if those people missed the game because they left home late and encountering crazy traffic

    I agree....

    It was the kind of solid, cautious game against potentially dangerous opponents that you expect from a team that has a plan.

    At least France showed a fairly solid defence in this game, which is what is needed to go far in the World Cup.
