World Cup 2010 - Match day 1


Recommended Posts

Here we go then. 30 days of heaven and hell.

Opening ceremony under way

South Africa v. Mexico underway at 15:00 BST followed by Uruguay v. France at 19:30.

I'm expecting the opening game to be tight and probably a draw.

Looking forward to the evening match though.

The prospective french team looks very strong. It's hard to know how Domanech has managed to f**k it all up so very badly.

Watching the opening ceremonies for the first game, and the crowd is giving a great atmosphere. You really can feel the excitement in your living room.

Now, the whole spectacle is ruined by Sepp Fatter handing off the mic to Jacob Zuma the corruption king, while talking about "the spirit of mandela". The moment feels a little hollow with dumb and dumber up there

Dreadful call against the Mexicans.

They kicked a corner with a south african standing on the near post, yet somehow got called offside.

You have 2 have 2 players between you and the oppo goal - one is usually the keeper, in this case, he wasn't there so a correct call!

Is anyone else pissed of with those trumpet things yet, I've only watched 1 half and keep looking around for a blue-bottle!

It was called offside because it was offside. Excellent spot from the lino.

great finish for south africa's goal, mexico's equaliser was well deserved, so probably all in all a draw was a fair result. not a bad game but not the "what a fantastic start to the world cup, more of the same PLEASE" touted by the moronically insulting ITV commentator.

oh and those vuvuzelas? it's a RACKET. a horrible, irritating, highly unpleasant, head-ache inducing noise. will someone please teach the South African's some songs.

Not a bad start. Got a chance to test the new big screen TV in the office. Looks like it's working well :)

Nice job. Probably the owner.

I don't see either of these sides making it through, but it was fun to watch Blanco having stayed around the game too long. El centro gordo, con no futura.

Go Uruguay!

Wow, completely forgot about that.

And yes - agree about the trumpets. I'm close to watching the France match on mute.

No Malouda?

Living proof the France manager should be run out of their country!

That fool running France and Maradonna running Argentina......well atleast we have internal sabatoge hurting 2 strong competitors! hahahha

I'd take a Domenech/Maradonna love child managing England over the British media.

God what a bore that was. France v Uruguay looked for the main like two average, or even poor sides who cancelled each other out. until the sending off when france predictably failed to make the most of their numeric superiority.

of the two I think France have more potential, but if they continue to play like they did today, i don't expect them to get much further in the competition. malouda was wasted.

Good to see Gourcoff living up to expectations - i.e. crap. With Gourcoff, Ribery and Govou playing like that it is fair to say Mexico, Uruguay and South Africa will all be thinking they can qualify from this group. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see France going home after the group stages.
