    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.

    Yeah rekon nearly all of them would sell out.

    Two internationls I have been to are Jamaica v Australia, and Ghana v Nigeria (Amazing match at the home of football) and they were friendlies, would go to any game at the world cup to be honest.

    That first-match cracker may have gone to Shabalala's head a little, one feels.

    Uruguay giving it a real lash; SA barely getting a touch. Although Christ knows why Uruguay're playing in white rather than their usual blue. White closer to yellow IMHO.

    Deflection ruined the epic nature of it though.

    Definitely the best day so far, this one. All three games have been very entertaining.

    Yeah, would concur too.

    SA do look cod ordinary tho. Living down to their billing as worst host nation ever.

    Know he's not had the greatest season, but refuse to believe Benny McCarthy wouldn't have improved them.

    Basically, Saffa need France and Mexico to draw tomorrow, then they need to beat France and hope Uruguay beat or draw with mexico. I think.

    Teams have gone through with 4 points before, but they've also finished bottom of the group with 4 points before. Haven't they Hakon?

    Should have to qualify as hosts, I've decided after watching Saffa tonight. Might have spared us some irish bleating - not actually sure where the extra place came from itbt
