The World Cup started in Cape Town's brand new stadium this morning with a match between South Africa and Mexico. Guess who I was cheering for?
No hosting country has EVER lost an opening match! Ever!
South Africa's Siphiwe Tshabalala's goal gave them an early lead but Mexico's Rafael Marquez tied the game for a 1:1 draw. I did not get to see it but I will have to tune in for their second match.
