CAPE TOWN, South African soccer fans are among the most colorful, passionate and eccentric in the world, as visitors to the country during the 2010. The 2010 FIFA World Cup will be the 19th Fifa World Cup, the premier international football tournament. It is scheduled to take place between 11 June and 11 July 2010 in South Africa. The 2010 FIFA World Cup will be the culmination of a qualification process that begain in August 2007 and involved 204 and 208 FIFA national teams. As such, it matches the 2008 Summer Olympics as the games event with the most competing nations. Come the afternoon of 11 June, should you find yourself in the grandstand of the Johannesburg’s calabash-shaped Soccer City stadium, chances are you’ll be sitting next to someone sporting a bright yellow jersey, oversized goggles and a decorated miner’s helmet or “makarapa”, and blowing a bright plastic trumpet known as a vuvuzela. The United States then meets Slovenia at Johannesburg’s Ellis Park on June 18 and completes the first round on June 23 against Algeria in Pretoria.
The U.S. has never played either nation. finish since the initial World Cup in 1930, there were high expectation for the Americans at the 2006 tournament in Germany but they were eliminated in the first round with losses to the Czech Republic and Ghana around a tie with Italy. If the Americans finish second in their group, they likely would play Germany in the second round. If they finish first, they probably would advance to a meeting with Serbia or Ghana. “I think it’s one of the more well-balanced groups,” England coach Fabio Capello said. We’re going to have to be careful. All the games are difficult and we may start with the toughest game, since the United States will have a lot more time to prepare for the World Cup.
