From it’s humble beginnings in 1930 the Soccer World Cup has grown to be one of the most spectacular sporting events in the world. The 2010 World Cup promises to be the planet’s biggest sporting event ever. Well over a billion people are expected to follow the month long tournament between the world’s top 32 soccer playing nations.

Who will be the winner when Mexico takes on South Africa in the Football World Cup 2010? Personally I think South Africa will win because of the advantage of playing in our home country and we are used to the climate. Former Charlton forward Bartlett suggested the “spirit inside every African” and the various African expatriate communities in South Africa will ensure huge support for each home nation, with fans of one African side rallying behind another once their team has been knocked out.
