    South Africa and the World Cup

     

    I spent 6 weeks in South Africa in June/July of 2010 during the World Cup.  I was lucky to make it to 8 different matches.  For me, South Africa will inevitably be linked to the greatest sporting event in the World and both will go hand in hand in memories:

     

    1.  South African fan supporting "Bafana Bafana"

    2.  Cape Town's Green Point Stadium

    3.  Uruguay's Suarez and his infamous handball

    4.  Portugual goalie Eduardo going for a save

    5.  Everyone's favourite noise maker, the vuvuzela

    6.  Budweiser:  The official sponsor of the World Cup

    7.  Dance party in Rustenburg after the US vs England Match

    8. US fan at US vs England

    9. US vs England--our rivalry is somewhat old

    10.  Soccer City Stadium
