Game one in the books... South Africa: 1 - Mexico: 1
Mexico dominated the run of play, but my God are they susceptible to the counter attack. El Tri' also lacks a quality finisher. Most of their early possession was negated by horrible, inaccurate shots on goal.
All the Mexican fans are too busy blaming the referee for making the (utterly correct) offside call that "robbed" them of a goal. Strangely, they fail to acknowledge the fact that a Mexican defender pulled a South African player down by the shoulder in the penalty area. He managed a shot on goal, but it was weak and easily saved. Shoulder to shoulder challenge is fine, but the Mexican clearly reached out with his right hand and pulled the South African's left shoulder.
I'll definitely be rooting for Uruguay to beat France, since Les Bleus are Les Cheats.
"Purgatory's kind of like the in-betweeny one. You weren't really shit, but you weren't all that great either. Like Tottenham."
I'll try being nicer...if you'll try being smarter.
