South Africa beat Columbia. Can they win the World Cup?
There is a huge advantage to playing at home and South African supporters might be getting a little excited as a 2-1 victory over Columbia last night saw them go 10 games unbeaten, right before they kick off the most important month in South African football history. Could the fairy tale World Cup really have a fairy tale ending?
One thing is for sure; anything is possible in football and the unexpected usually happens. Look at the likes of Birmingham City surviving in the Premier League or Liverpool finishing 7th – nobody predicted these things could happen, but they did.
