    Fully expect SA to get a 5-0 hiding in the opener.. The only embarassment we will face is our own team

    France got so lucky getting this group imo. Surely they couldn't even screw this up.

    Mexico and Uruguay to go through.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    South Africa will go through, I believe I'm right in saying no host has ever failed to get out of the group stages? I'm sure FIFA will see it neccesary that they make the second round at least, hopefully it wont be as ridiculous as what happened with South Korea in 2002 though.

    no way will SA ever get through.. Please don't think our soccer players will ever display the fight that our rugby and cricket players so on a regular basis.. I hope I get proved wrong, but we need to start beating sides like Namibia first..

    Nothing to do with abilty, all to do with politics, they'll make the second round and in most likely dubious circumstances.

    TBF to South Korea it was only in the latter stages they were the beneficiaries of some home town decisions. & when yer Italians are the victims....

    In the group stages Poland and Portugual were both dire, as evidenced by the fact the USofA advanced with the hosts.

    SA will go out; I'm convinced of it. There's a fortnight avatar wager on it if you're game?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    It's a bet then: if SA qualify I sport the ava of your choice for two weeks, if they don't I chose yours.

    Giovanni dos Santos's brother Jonathan was left out of Mexico's World Cup squad, which in turn has led Giovanni to throw the hissy fit to end all hissy fits and is strongly considering refusing to play for Mexico ever again

    Opening ceremony was so dire. Good news is, the game can't possibly be worse.
