Oh swing low sweet chariot on that fateful day in Bloemfontein 2010. England, playing in red, went down 4-1 in a game marked in FIFA controversy and German dominance. Could it just be that FIFA will bring in a video empire, a third-eye linesman after this match? I think this is a real possibility. Come Brazil 2014. Just you wait and see!
Whatever the outcome of this fateful match, the Bloemfontein crowd and the hospitality of the host nation shone through once more. Viva South Africa and viva Bloemfontein ayobaness!
