SA beats France 2-1 – 1st host nation not to qualify for 2nd round #WorldCup

Tshabalala SHOULD have scored, he had the hunger and determination, just never quite on target. First half Bafana were playing brilliantly, France was down to 10 men – seems that SA had a foot in the door to quallify to go through to the next round.

France’s goalkeeping was spot on in the second half. Seems to me France had more control in the second half of the game, scoring very quickly into the 2nd half. South Africa would have had to score an additional 3 goals to go forward to the next round.

Although not qualifying to go through to the next round, South Africa can be proud of their team today – they showed that they had what it takes to play world class soccer. A brilliant game, well worth watching, and although not a soccer fan, I am glad I did.

Way to go SA! Beating France was no mean feat!! Well played France, gave us the ‘run around’ second half 😛
