Last Friday I noticed and posted an article on the crime, disease and transport problems in South Africa. According to the journalist, next year’s World Cup should be moved to Egypt or Antarctica or Neptune. I forget which. The point is it should go anywhere other than the actual location.
In the interests of balance, here’s another article from the same newspaper. This one has a slightly different perspective. Personally, never having been to South Africa, I can’t say whether this contribution has more or less credibility than last week’s. However, I do know this tournament is in danger of being blighted by fear before a ball is kicked. What do you think?
