France 1 – 2 South Africa


You’ve got to love France at the World Cup. It’s either diamonds (1998, 2006, 2018) or dogshit (2002, 2010). Presumably this means they’ll die on their arses at Qatar 2022*. In 2010, the Bafana Bafana were the lowest ranked team, aside from North Korea. Even with home advantage they’re not going to beat the French are they, though? Well, Zinedine Zidane and Nicolas Anelka laid into their coach and Patrick Evra boycotted training, even before Yoann Gourcuff got sent off in this. So yes, they are going to beat the French, actually.

*They actually didn’t do too badly. Don’t know if you heard about it.
