You may want to look at DeRossi's foul again.
DeRossi deserved the red card, Gourcuff on the other hand, didn't.

It's the rule to have the last group matches happen at the same time. Just read the summary of this game and you'll know one of the reasons why the FIFA thought it was necessary. This game is also known as the "non-aggression pact of Gijón" or the "disgrace of Gijón" in Germany.

Uruguay are one up! There's still hope for South Africa, if they manage to score two more goals!

Hurrah, I have been out-linked! Thanks for the clarification sir.

South Africa still have hope (though honestly, I think Mexico have been entertaining and it would be a shame to see them go), but they need to be careful. France still have offense, as unlikely as it may be to get going.

Come on, more goals in the second half SA!

I hope Uruguay scores a couple of goals in the second half and if South Africa does so too, Uruguay and South Africa go through to the next round.

2-0, probably going to be even worse..not one victory, not even one goal for France...holy shit.
I am glad that the SA fans have something to be happy about :D
I wonder what kind of excuse will they come up with when they return home...

Oh what a miss, fantastic play by South Africa, absolutely tore the French defence apart there, just a pity it didn't wind up in the top corner. I hope for SA's sake that miss doesn't turn out to be a goal which would have put them through to the last 16.

South African players telegraphing their moves, stuff I'D be able to anticipate on the field. No clue what's gotten into these bleues.

Agreed...they're winning 2-0, and yet they're still looking to score...and they probably will.

I was about to make a comment regarding this too, haha.

Come on SA make something of these attacks. It's open for you! No pointless strikes, just go!

Come on SA, what sort of goal was that to give away? Defence was a complete mess there, now short of a very dramatic last 20 minutes it looks like they may be on their way out of this tournament.

Either this was meant ironicaly and I missed it, or you're just not watching the right game. :P

Plenty of Vuvuzelas there.

Also: Shit! France scored a goal! >:(

Crap, cranky siblings have overtaken my television. Who scored for France? Are they playing better, or was it a fluke? Did the goal give 'em some juice?

It's good to see South-Africa is winning this match. They deserve a win in this tournament, even though it won't put them in the next round.

Also, France really embarrassed themselves this WC. Not only by their very poor performance, but also by their behavior. If they keep playing with an attitude like this I bet they won't even qualify for the EC in 2012.

And there it goes. Feel sorry for South Africa, but I don't feel sorry at all for France.

Good-bye, Domenech. And good riddance.

Tshabalala! You should've scored lad, final minute! Argh.

France weren't particularly improved by the goal, South Africa just lost pace really as they have done in previous games. So many chances though, they'll be disappointed. I hope the South Africans remain brilliant at the games though. A victory against France (albeit a bad French side) is still an achievement when you compare to the predictions people were making about SA beforehand.

Final score, 2-1. Uruguay and Mexico go through. Domenech looked as though he was going to go on a killing spree, and the South Africa coach was holding him back as Domenech listed his targets. Good luck to Blanc. France will need some new blood soon I think.

It was worse. He refused to shake his hand. That's like shooting someone in the back in a western.

Sweet lord, I had no idea. I only saw the SA coach holding his arm in a playcating gesture, as Domenech ranted on about something and was held back by the shrit and jacket from someone else behind.

What a COLOSSAL prick. Way to go out without a LICK of class, man.

Oh so that was what's up. Our reporter didn't know, he thought they were just discussing something.

That's kinda stupid though. You know people are gonna think you are prick for not shaking hands after the match and there wasn't any good reason not to do it (like if SA won unfairly).

I don't feel sorry for France either. I'm glad that they didn't win any match because they didn't deserve to be in the WC in the first place. I was watching Uruguay - Mexico, and I wasn't expecting Uruguay to win, but we did it anyway. Go Uruguay! :D
