    Kinda surprised their isn't a thread up for this yet. Is that because South Africa didn't make it?

    Yes, I think that makes the most sense.

    Anyway... I'm tipping a Ghana win. Even though I haven't seen them play yet

    The ACN is only worth watching for the goalkeepers.

    Don't think anyone particularly likes Vuvuzelas tbh.

    I don't get the attraction of an instrument that I can recreate by pissing off a swarm of bees.

    Credit to the players, some of those pens under such pressure were brilliant. The Zambian players looked so small and young and nervous compared to the Ivorians, but they all did the job cooly, especially the one hammered into the top right, absolute stunning pen.

    Also, Herve Renard must be one of the coolest coaches in football, never flinched during the penalties once. Might be one of the sexiest too

    Well done Zambia, great achievement. But this tournament on the whole was pretty cack. Watched a bit of the semi-final the other night and there was hardly anyone in the ground ffs. Bit of a tired format and doesn't have the same prestige of other comparable international competitions, needs to have new life breathed into it somehow.
