South Africa did the very thinkable today defeating a reeling French team that was more in retreat than Frenchmen doing anything.
Unfortunately, the Bafana Bafana get squeezed by goal differential and become the first host nation to not advance to the second round. Then again, the South Africans might well be the absolute worst team as host nation of all time, so it's not ridiculous. Even still, they played solidly and Tuesday, with the rest of the world cheering them on against the dysfunctional French they pulled out a strong win.
They also feature this awesomely tattooed player. I can't figure out who he is, but he has some KICKASS tattoos and a nice beard combo too. A+ for style sir.
