That video has become unavailable in the 12 minutes since you posted the thread. :(

Really? RUBBISH! :(

Muntari scored a last minute cracker as well. And Ghana hit the bar/post 3 times in the first half.

Try any of those.

African teams continue to have pretty rubbish strikers and goalies.

Just thought I'd point on that BBC Sports Interactive are showing a lot of the matches.

On Freeview it's channel 301 but I think if you press your red button on BBC1 and go to BBCi (or something) it'll go directly there.

I was watching a few matches today and they were entertaining enough. Although the standard of play isn't totally on par with the Premiership, it's still fun to watch. They aren't totally inept at football, just a bit slow to play at times. There's plenty of chances though and seems to be very attack orientated so a lot of end to end footy going on.

Lovely header by Manucho for Angola. And he SA goal was a cracker as well.

Keeping IS dodgy though.

Good game that Morocco v Guinea. Crazy 6 minutes just after half-time.

I took the team to the quarter-finals but I couldn't get us to the semi-finals.


Arrogant much?
