Top five conclusions: South Africa 0-3 Uruguay

Posted by - June 16, 2010 - Conclusions, Lists, World Cup

1. The euphoria of hosting a World Cup can only carry you so far. South Africa were really poor tonight.

2. Diego Forlan is a better footballer than we thought. We knew he could score goals, but he completely bossed the game this evening and weighed in with a great strike and a penalty.

3. Luis Suarez’s cotton wool-eating habit does get in the way of his football occasionally.

4. Pienaar and Dikgacoi is the most phallic-sounding midfield combination ever (although we would happily receive suggestions of other candidates).

5. Vuvuzelas seem to have a volume dial which goes down proportionality according to the number of goals conceded.

    Dude, it was 3-0.

    Still, #3 was funny! What was that guy doing running around with a mouth full of cotton?

  • Chris

    Final score was 3 – 0 🙁

  • Dean @ Footballgambler

    You’re definately right with point 5.

    Think SA are a poor side, they lack anyone up front. As do a lot of sides in this tournament.

    Why the heck didn’t they bring Benni McCarthy? Do they really have a better option despite his poor form lately?
