More surprises in S.A

IN the run up to the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa, the likes of Spain, England, Brazil, Argentina, Italy and to a less extent, Germany, were touted as tournament favourites. But the way things are unfolding tells a far different story.

Switzerland pulled off the most shocking result of all when they defeated Spain 1-0.  Italy, who are also the defending champions, could only grind out a 1-all draw against Paraguay while Brazil survived a late scare to secure a 2-1 win over the unknown North Koreans.

Germany raised everyone’s hopes when they thrashed Australia 4-0 but then succumbed to a 0-1 loss against Serbia yesterday.

1998 winners France, who have still failed to score a goal from their opening two games, are on the verge of packing their bags.

I’m sure this is just the beginning. We are yet to witness more surprises.
