The 2010 Fifa World Cup is underway in South Africa and the South Africa Broadcasting Commission (SABC) has upped its game. They recently launched their new state of the art studios with impressive technology that allows the sports anchors and analysts to analyze the games with precision and ease. Programs have been shuffled and shifted to accommodate the time slots of all World Cup games. Three games are aired live on SABC each day as well as repeat and highlight shows. And for those who can’t watch (don’t stress, SABC’s got you!)… SABC Radio 2000 will also bring all its listeners all the action of all 64 games in all 11 South African Languages, making sure that everyone is accommodated.

So far the world cup is still in the first group stages and the fans have already witnessed the greatest goals and saves of the FIFA World Cup.

  • Host nation South Africa settled for a 1 all draw against Mexico in the opening game.
  • The pressure is now on for Bafana-Bafana to win their next game against Uruguay on the 16th of June (Youth Day in South Africa). UPDATE: South Africa lost to Uruguay!!
  • Best goal so far of the tournament has to go to Bafana-Bafana’s Siphiwe Tshabalala who scored the opening goal of the match and the 1st ever goal to be scored by a South Africa player in the opening match (and to top it all off, he scored the goal on his 50th cap for Bafana).
  • Best save of the tournament so far has to be handed to Nigerian goal keeper Vincent Enyema, who gave Argentina’s Lionel Messi (the world’s best and most expensive player) a headache as he saved all his shots on target. However, Argentina won the match 1-0

Africa is representing and I hope all 5 nations representing Africa will make it through to the last 16.

Feel it, it’s here!!
