South Africa v Mexico: World Cup Group A, Match 1
South Africa have looked good recently and this is the match that will determine the mood of South Africa for the rest of the month. If South Africa win today, it will breath optimism throughout an entire country, that something miraculous is possible. If they are beaten, the mood of a country will change, but only for a day or two.
A win for South Africa today isn’t life or death – but I promise you, if South Africa win, it will be something special. But they face a Mexico side that have looked very good recently. Having lost to England and beaten Italy, they have surprised a few on their way to South Africa, but we suspect, not themselves.
