World Cup predictions for today’s Group H and Group A games featuring Spain, South Africa and some other teams

Some accounts reckon the New Zealand v Slovakia wasn’t half bad – still glad I missed it; not even Drogba and Ronaldo could prevent a stalemate; and Brazil are functional with occasional dashes of brilliance – this should give the other contenders some hope. So what about today’s World Cup games?

Honduras v Chile (Nelspruit) 12.30pm

It’s the battle between Central and South America. Whoever wins will catapult themselves up the table in the race to finish second to you know who. I think Chile might just shade this one due to their experience and because they have ex-Liverpool winger Mark Gonzalez in their ranks. OK, I’m only joking about that last bit.

Prediction: Chile WIN

Spain v Switzerland (Durban) 3pm

While they are expected to steamroller pretty much every team they meet, the favourites came unstuck during last year’s Confederations Cup. That said, they’ve still only lost one game since the Spanish Armada, and that was in, well, it was a long time ago. I’m not expecting a slip up today.

Prediction: Spain WIN

South Africa v Uruguay (Tshwane/Pretoria) 7.30pm

The hosts are determined not to become the first to fail to reach the knock out stages. Uruguay, it seems, are equally determined to win their first World Cup match in 20 years. This is my match to watch today.

Prediction: South Africa WIN

After yesterday’s games the World Cup Bafana Bafana 2010 prediction success rate has jumped to a much healthier 7/14
