1. South Africa conceding is to paracetamol what South Africa scoring is to headache.
2. Cracking finish for the first goal of the tournament. Take a bow, Siphiwe Tshabalala.
3. Off The Post didn’t have to wait long for its first mention of the tournament. Just ask Katlego Mphela.
4. Vuvuzelas creating faux bum notes during national anthems is definitely going to be one of the comedy highlights of the tournament
5. Mexico should have been out of sight at half-time, but thankfully for the tournament they weren’t.
