South Africa vs Mexico

June 13, 2010 by Victoria Rowe 1 Comment

We where all here at Starling Village Backpackers to witness South Africa vs. Mexico for the World Cup soccer match that opened the tournament. With both teams scoring one goal, each ending after overtime periods at 1-1. The South Africa vs. Mexico game featured several thrilling moments for the thousands of fans in attendance and us watching here.

Siphiwe Tshabalala you biscuit was the first player to score in the game and in this year’s World Cup as he put the ball in. South African fans had hopes of an upset of the Mexico team but the feeling was short lived when Rafael Marquez pushed in a goal to tie the score at 1-1.

There was a huge crowd of over 83,000 people attended the game of the 2010 World Cup tournament from Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. Brilliant!!!
