World Cup 2010: South Africa 2-1 France

By on Jun 22, 2010 in Art, Latest | 2 comments

Twelve years ago, at their own World Cup finals, France comfortably beat South Africa in their opening group game, going on to become the sixth nation to win the tournament at home.  Today South Africa became the first hosts in the 80-year history of the competition to fall at the first hurdle, but their blushes were somewhat spared with this spirited display against an abject French side in their last game under Raymond Domenech.  Twelve years is a long time in football.

But even six months, or two weeks, can prove to be epic, as our resident buffoon Dotmund attempted to demonstrate in lieu of an in-depth written report.  We are sorry.
