South Africa Plays On - OnlinePublished June 23, 2010
South African fans, duly proud of their team's first round performance, must now look for another team to support.
Sadly the dream is over for South Africa's green and yellow clad warriors. They are the first host nation in World Cup history to crash out in round one. Nevertheless, thanks to their downing of 1998 champions France -- in a last ditch but ultimately unsuccessful battle to qualify for the knockout stages -- the Bafana Bafana have departed with their dignity intact and the spirit of the South African nation uplifted.
In the words of The Citizen newspaper 'The party is still on'!
Who To Back?
Determined to carry on the colourful celebrations, South African fans are now wondering who they should throw their weight behind for the remainder of the tournament. Names like England, Brazil and Argentina are on people's lips. 888sport can help you make this crucial decision.
