South Africa WCup Soccer

From the Washington Post:

JOHANNESBURG — It has been an inauspicious start for the six African nations competing in the 2010 World Cup, who have produced one victory, two draws and five losses among them.

Ghana stands the best chance of advancing to the final 16. And the prospects of host South Africa, the Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Cameroon and Algeria are grim.

But in the view of former president Nelson Mandela, the man most responsible for bringing the first World Cup to African soil, the tournament has succeeded because of the economic boost it has given South Africa and its promise of further uniting a country and continent that still bear scars of division.

“Looking at the World Cup and the impact it has had on our community and our country, he is fully satisfied with the investments that have been made on infrastructure,” Mandla Mandela said of his 91-year-old grandfather. “That alone has enabled us as a country to have a steady economy through this recession.”
