World Cup results – June 11

11 Jun

Host South Africa got the party started with the first goal of the tournament, thanks to a beautiful strike from Siphiwe Tshabalala.  Mexico tallied a late equalizer from Rafa Marquez, but it was a great start to the tournament for South Africa.  Uruguay spent the last 10 minutes or so frantically trying to keep France from scoring after Nicolas Lodeiro was ejected for his second yellow card of the game.  France couldn’t find the back of the net and group A will head into the second day of competition all square with one point each.

Group A Results
South Africa 1 (Tshabalala 55)
Mexico 1 (Marquez 79)

France 0
Uruguay 0

Group A Standings
