FIFA WORLD CUP 2010: Day 12 (22 June 2010)

SOUTH AFRICA 2 - FRANCE 1

URUGUAY 1 - MEXICO 0

GROUP A:
You don't need to be French to understand the word "catastrophique", one term bandied in interviews following the French debacle at the hands of Bafana Bafana. From the outset, Les Bleus appeared deflated and after Gourcuff's tough sending off, South Africa made it 2-0 by halftime. The second goal was pure comedy, aided and abetted by a French defence comprising Abou Diaby, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and William Gallas, all Arsenal players. Arsene Wenger, be afraid, very afraid. Raymond Domenech: the ultimate sore loser. He 's just a loser, period. Mexico, for not even making an effort, will meet Argentina in the Second Round. Another automatic exit beckons. Rating: 3.5/5

SOUTH KOREA 2 - NIGERIA 2

ARGENTINA 2 - GREECE 0

GROUP B:
Argentina wrap up Group B in style and maximum points. Two late goals sealed a well-deserved victory, and Greece hardly challenged. Strangely at the 79th minute of both matches, all 4 teams were in a chance for qualifying. Even Nigeria, whose chase for a third goal proved ultimately fruitless, were not out of it. All 4 goals in the Korea-Nigeria match were from poor defending. Yakubu's howler from 3 yards has to be the miss of the tournament. As for the Korean sweeper Kim Nam Il, known as the "vacuum cleaner", he's just a sucker. South Korea gets Uruguay in the Second Round with some hope in their hearts. Rating: 4/5
