Yes! 1-0!

The defender left it far too open for him, well-executed.

Now get another one in!

Is it just me or is Cissé just about old enough to start doing denture adverts? I remember him from the game Championship Manager when i was in 10th grade, and i didn't buy him 'cause i fancied him as too old to develop. And that was way back when. lol@Domenec

I think the whole world is rooting for South Africa. Half of France included.

LOL red card to Gourcuff. This is going so well it's stupid, but i think the SAf player's in trouble... Hearts and minds, kids.

Too early to throw a guy out of the game for anything less than a head-butt to the chest, methinks.

Sure, it was a dirty foul, but it wasn't THAT intentional. He didn't aim for the guy's face with his entire body, his arm was already up from just trying to ELEVATE himself.

Same thing that happened to De Rossi back in 2006, colliding with McBride.

Yellow? Fuck yes. Red? Only if he'd already fouled another guy or two with the same obvious damage being done to 'em.

In this case, undeserved.

France - red card - foul involved arms/hands in the box.

Karma much?

Oh dear, and C-Hawk's right, Domenech's reaction was good.

I wonder if anyone other than Mexicans and Uruguayans are actually watching the other game and not this one. Kinda stupid to have 2 games at the same time, and it's also going to happen later today with Greece vs Argentina and Nigeria vs South Korea. What would have one more day of WC hurt SAf? Bad scheduling imo.

2-0, there's no way in hell France are coming back from this now, they look like they don't even care. In a way it's hilarious, but in another way it's a greater pity Ireland didn't get to SA, ok perhaps we might not have got out of the group, but I'd like to think we'd at least give it a better go than France have done.

My Dad was telling me that they do it to avoid what happened in '82's Group 2, where Germany and Austria knew the Algeria-Chile score in advance and just played a dull game that worked to both of their advantages. I'm not sure if that's correct, but it seems like it might be.

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! >:(
