A fine day with an exciting opener and a dry match
between two old champion teams.
Uruguay 0 France 0
100% boredom with Urugay being sort of the winner of day 1 with having survived
group favorite France.
South Africa 1 Mexico 1
Bafana's Man of the match Rat Siphiwe Tshabalala
wrote history scoring a fine 1:0 lead against the until then
dominating Mexicans where Snake Giovani dos Santos had impressed.
In the first half Mexico had all the chances, but failed
to covert until Goat Rafael Marquez had equalized. After that
Rat Katlego Mphela had a clear 100% chance to score the 2:1,
but had failed poorly.
That was the
game prediction ...
South African Bafana Bafana
is lead by Brasilian coach Carlos Alberto Pereira who was born in a year of the
Goat and who is struggeling a lot to get his hyper active men into shape.
in 1994 he had won the World Cup with Brazil and now his recepy seems to be a
mixture of aggressive Rooster, several elederly Snakes and a few Monkeys who might
emerge as his best key players for the Rainbow Nation.
His midfield brain is
Dog Steven Pienaar who plays for the FC Everton whilst the defense is built around
Rat Siboniso Gaxa.
Overall Bafana Bafana does not seem to be that well configured
for the Tiger Year World Cup, what also applies for team Mexico
led by coach Dog Javier Aguirre and his key players Rat
Cuauthemoc Blanco, Buffalo Guillermo Ochoa.
Mexico may have the better plavers
and system whilst Bafana Bafana may reach a draw thanks to fierce fighting and
a driving audience.
Prediction: Bafana Bafana 1 Mexico 1
vs. Uruguay will see again the low flying Gallic Dragon and his top guns
Snake Thierry Henry and Pig Franck Ribery who had suffered a recent loss against
China that points at a miserable shape at this cosmic moment.
is once again driven by coach Pig Oscar Tabarez and his ruler on the field Goat
Diego Forlan and Tiger Luis Suarez, the hot striker from Atletico Madrid what
seems like a very hard to defeat combination which is likely to win not only the
opener against France but also Group A.
2 France 1
