WORLD CUP France vs South Africa


Strutting into the stadium dancing and singing, Bafana Bafana turned its final game at the World Cup into a rollicking party for all of South Africa.All that was missing was enough goals to see them through to the next round.

For France, Tuesday’s 2-1 loss completed a miserable meltdown. With each team needing a big win to have any chance of moving on from Group A, both stuck to character. South Africa played eager and aggressive soccer. In the end, neither survived the group stage. But Bafana Bafana players left with their heads held high.

Bongani Khumalo scored in the 20th minute when he outjumped France midfielder Abou Diaby to knock a cross from Siphiwe Tshabalala into the net with his shoulder. Mphela doubled the lead 17 minutes later, outmuscling defender Gael Clichy to reach a low cross from Tsepo Masilela and knock the ball across the line.

WORLD CUP Netherlands vs Japan

Netherlands and Japan failed to impress in the first half, resulting in a 0-0 score at half-time in both side's second match of the group phase. Oranje then broke the deadlock after the break and Japan were unable to restore parity in the remainder of the game.

The Dutch have now collected six points from two games and are sitting in pole position to qualify for the next round. Japan have three points from two matches and need a result in their final match if they are to survive the group stage.

Oranje started the match the better side of the two and got their first chance of the match after eight minutes of play. The referee had no choice but to award the Dutch a free kick in a dangerous position after a foul on Robin van Persie. Wesley Sneijder stepped up to take it, but his shot sailed over the bar. Dirk Kuyt then tried his luck with an acrobatic bicycle kick after a cross from the left, but his shot was blocked by the Japanese defence before being cleared into safety.

The Asians then made a foray into Dutch territory in the 15th minute. Defender Yuji Nakazawa created some space down the left and tried his luck from 25 yards, only to see his shot bounce wide at the far post.

The Dutch did open the score after 53 minutes of play though. The Japanese defence failed to clear the ball and Sneijder fired home the loose ball from the edge of the area. Oranje failed to break through Japan's defense but Sneijder made a goal after the break.

WORLD CUP Ghana vs Australia

The Ghanaians moved a point above Germany and Serbia after fighting off a determined bid by the Australians, who lost striker Harry Kewell to a red card in a sensational first-half penalty incident.

The Australians, trying to rebuild their World Cup campaign after a shattering 4-0 first-up loss to Germany, now have the tough task of trying to beat Serbia on Wednesday and hope Germany are beaten by Ghana to reach the knockout round.

Ghana hit back to cancel out Australia's 11th-minute opener with striker Asamoah Gyan's 25th-minute penalty and both teams had chances at either end to win the pulsating encounter.Kewell was red carded for handling on the line of Gyan's fierce goal-bound shot - the ball hitting his upper arm. Italian referee Roberto Rosetti immediately pulled out the red card as Kewell and his Australian teammates remonstrated his decision.

Gyan sent Mark Schwarzer the wrong way with his penalty attempt to level the game and leave Australia to play a man down for the remainder of the match.

WORLD CUP Germany vs Serbia

Germany forward Lucas Podolski is guilty of missing a penalty in their 1-0 defeat against Serbiahas branded himself "the idiot" having failed to convert from the spot.

Joachim Loew's side, reduced to 10 men following the sending off of Miroslav Klose, were beaten thanks to a Milan Jovanovic goal, and despite having chances, the Germans were unable to take anything from the game. Podolski, who has 39 international goals to his name, believes that the team's failure to claim a point from the game is largely his fault.

Germany now have three points from two games and really need a win from their final group game, against Ghana, to qualify for the last 16.

WORLD CUP England vs Algeria

An inefficient England was deadlocked in a 0-0 draw with Algeria after 75 minutes of their World Cup Group C match. England looked far from its best even as the team pressed forward. England’s passing was errant, with midfielder Steven Gerrard particularly wasteful.

Algeria looked happy to sit back and look for opportunities to counterattack, but Rafik Halliche had to be alert to head clear a cross by Aaron Lennon intended for Wayne Rooney. Halliche also blocked a shot by Emile Heskey off a rare England break.

Frank Lampard had the best chance of the match in the first half, but his left-footed shot from 12 meters was well saved by Algeria goalkeeper M’bohi Rais Ouhed.

WORLD CUP Slovenia vs USA

Maurice Edu kicked the ball into the net just before the 86th minute. American players jumped around wildly, thinking they had capped a historic comeback, turning a two-goal, first-half deficit into a 3-2 victory over Slovenia but referee Koman Coulibaly of Mali had called it off.

Perhaps Coulibaly will never explain himself. Perhaps it remains one of those unsolved soccer mysteries.

Donovan and Michael Bradley scored second-half goals that did count, and U.S. hopes to reach the World Cup’s second round remained alive with a 2-2 tie Friday night.

World Cup Switzerland vs Spain


Gelson Fernandes scored on a rare Swiss attack, giving his team a stunning 1-0 upset Wednesday over European champion and tournament favorite Spain.

It also provided a thrill at a tournament that has seen few surprises and just 25 goals after the first game for all 32 teams. Eren Derdiyok created Switzerland’s big chance in the 52nd minute by surging through the center of Spain’s defense and rounding Iker Casillas. Gerard Pique’s desperate tackle stopped Derdiyok, but Fernandes pounced on the loose ball and forced it into the net.

At the final whistle, Fernandes fell to his knees and raised both arms to the sky. The entire team then went to the small section of Swiss fans in the Moses Mabhida Stadium and saluted them as they cheered and rang alpine cow bells.

WORLD CUP Chile vs Honduras

Chile secured a first World Cup win in 48 years by edging Honduras 1-0 on Wednesday through a late first-half goal from striker Jean Beausejour.

Chile began brightly as they sought a fourth victory in six clashes with the Hondurans and midfielder Matias Fernandez went close off a third-minute free kick. Chile were on top territorially and it took Honduras 18 minutes to create an opening close to goal only for 101-cap Carlos Pavon to disappoint with a weak shot that trickled wide.

Persistent Chile pressure finally paid off when slick passing outside the penalty area created space for Mauricio Isla on the right flank and his low cross was turned in by Mexico-based Beausejour. Honduras pushed Edgar Alvarez forward for the second half but the early exchanges followed a similar pattern to the first 45 minutes with Chile exerting far more pressure as they sought the cushion of a two-goal advantage.

WORLD CUP Germany vs Australia

Germany began their quest for a fourth World Cup in devastating style Sunday with a 4-0 victory over Australia in their opening Group D match.

Forwards Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose gave their side a 2-0 halftime lead. Australia, who started both halves brightly and battled gamely throughout, played the last 34 minutes with 10 men after Tim Cahill was dismissed for clattering into Bastian Schweinsteiger.

In the eighth minute, Ozil found Mueller in what looked to be an offside position and his cutback allowed Podolski to smash the ball into the net via Mark Schwarzer’s flailing arm. Klose should have doubled the lead in the 24th minute but he blasted wide when Podolski’s cross left him free in front of goal. With the Australian spirit sapped in the second half by Cahill’s sending off, Mueller got his reward for a fine performance on the right flank when he found space in the box and screwed the ball into the net off the post in the 68th minute. Cacau, who had just replaced Klose, completed the scoring two minutes later after Ozil had beaten the offside trap to play in the striker to drill the ball into the net.

WORLD CUP Serbia VS Ghana


The opening game of World Cup Group D was won by Ghana, who scored a late penalty to win over Serbia whose lack of discipline was ultimately decisive.

The first half failed to produce any goals, there were chances at either end. It was an inauspicious start for the Ghanaians, but they would soon enjoy efforts of their own through a spectacular long-range volley from Anthony Annan and a free kick hit wastefully over the top by Asamoah Gyan. With quarter of an hour gone, a fierce driven centre from Kwadwo Asamoah had to be blocked away from the six-yard box by Nikola Zigic following a corner kick, continuing the upbeat and open beginning in Pretoria.

Serbian's
defense was under pressure from Ghana’s relentless attack. A moment of madness from Zdravko Kuzmanovic cost the Europeans as he inexplicably handled a long cross in the box. From the penalty spot, Gyan cracked a shot into the top left hand corner.

Kuzmanovic had a shot at immediate redemption but leaned back and shot hopelessly over from the edge of the penalty box, consigning Serbia to an opening game loss, though it could have been heavier as Gyan struck the post in stoppage time.
