I think I respond your discussion lately. We have all know that the result is draw by score Mexico 1 and Republic of South Africa 1. I think, Mexico could be the winner if their goal in first half was not annulled by the referee. Overall, the game was very interesting. Perhaps, Republic of South Africa's player played under pressure since they act as the host and be accused win the game. This situation make the players in high tense. If they played more relax, it's possible to won the game. They have to learn from the first game in other to win in the next game.

I think draw is fair for them guys. Definitely We know mexico have some good young talents whereas south africa just have some veteran talent like pienaar. But this match held in their home so perhaps they have more spirits to give the best performance.

I'd vote for Mexico though South Africa will benefit from home crowd support.Unlike past Mexican squads,this year's team is bolstered by a growing number of players groomed in tougher European leagues.There are rising stars like Giovanni Dos Santos and Carlos Vela as well as a core of World Cup trusted veterans like Rafael Marquez,Gerardo Torrado etc.South Africa, on the other hand have a tough game ahead of them because if they lose,they'll risk the ignominy of becoming the first host nation to fail to advance out of the first round.South Africa will look for leadership from the speedy midfielder Steven Pienaar and the captain Aaron Mokoena, but its biggest advantages could be pride, emotion and the support of full throated 94000 fans.Lets keep our fingers crossed!!
