Yup, those horns were unbearable.

Awful game. Really boring. Some things to say. The grass looked too high and too dry, which doesn't help football, IMO. Aside this, the pitch didn't look in good conditions anyway, things to improve for the WC.

They played rugby on the pitch about a week ago, which was a terrible decision. It's usually a perfect pitch for playing football.

The organization should take care with these details.

BTW, I was surprised not to see the stadium full of people. A bit sad to see some empty seats. Isn't this tournament attractive for South Africans?

It was full, they just didn't sell any tickets for the first few rows.

Yeah was 100% sold out, but for security reasons the front few rows weren't sold. It's all bullshit because Ellis Park has always had spectators in the front few rows when it has been sold out before.

South Africa will probably be in an easier group next summer, expect more boring matches.
