Enjoy this photo blog of South Africa v Mexico, the opening game of the 2010 World Cup. Annoyed by the vuvuzelas yet?

FULL-TIME: 1-1 Decent game in the end. Second half better than the first. Thanks for watching.

Mexico’s keeper (who is a clown) celebrates their equaliser:

Marquez scores:

GOAL! Mexico equalise. Barcelona’s Rafael Marquez. Composed finish from six yards.

South Africa’s Tshabalala (centre) scores his side’s first goal:

GOAL! South Africa, the hosts, score the first goal of the 2010 World Cup! Siphiwe Tshabalala scored it. Triffic finish after swift counter-attack. Against the run of play really, though Bafana Bafana started second half with more intent.

Half-time, 0-0. Mexico should be in the lead, had much the better of the first half. Vela’s tap-in disallowed for offside. Correct decision.

Prince Albert, the royal named after a cock ring…

Giovani never looked this good for Spurs…

Hosts started very nervously but getting into the game more now. Gio Dos Santos lively.

    As usual Jum Buglin gets it completely wrong.

    If Rafa Marquez’ subtly disguised finish was scuffed then I’m a monkey’s brother-in-law.

    i would like to point that in the third photo from the bottom, the guy’s world cup novelty glasses look precisely like a cock and balls.

    not wanting to sound base but the guy is sporting an enormous and veiny erection on his forehead.

  5. Keith South Africa says:

    Paul and Ollie get out of my country, we don’t need jerks like you here!

    Spectator LOL isn’t that veiny thing supposed to be the world cup?
