South Africa World Cup Diary – June 11
Since I arrived in Durban, I was a little surprised at the number of football fans I’d seen. Or rather, hadn’t seen. I remembered from Germany ‘06, large groups of fans walking the streets in their jerseys and making noise day and night, but I hadn’t seen much of that in Durban. Add that to the last minute construction and clean up that was being done in the Fan Fest area and I was beginning to think that beyond the (amazing) stadium, Durban wasn’t really that into the World Cup.
Today, the first day of the 2010 World Cup started out quietly as well, but slowly built up as the day went on…
…and then this happened!
