Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina…



Green Point Stadium Cape Town – Table Mountain at Sunset 


Chancellor Angela Merkel can barely watch… (believe it…) 

what a cool lady! After the first goal she looked around, then stood up 

almost apologetically and applauded in a very ladylike fashion. 

A few goals later she could care less – jumped up and gave hand shakes all around 

smiling widely :mrgreen: 

(I’m sure she felt like doing a Mexican Wave all on her own 😆 ) 

After the win she planted a big kiss on Zuma’s cheek – 

(earlier in the day Zuma Zuma captained a charity team in the Unity Cup tournament, donning a blue and white strip… :mrgreen:


“Die Mannschaft” celebrates 31-year-old central defender Arne Friedrich’s FIRST goal ever  

on his 77th appearance for Germany!!! 


Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer – almost always on his knees (if not flat on the grass) 

sacrificing every bodypart for some of the most brilliant saves in this WC. 

In one word: BRILLIANT!! 


Thanking the crowd for their support after a 



Immediately after Argentina’s 4-0 quarterfinal loss to Germany on Saturday, Maradona was understandably upset. And according to Argentina’s Diarios y Noticias,  he let a group of German fans know it. A translation of their report: 

 “Argentina national team coach Diego Maradona had an altercation with German fans after the end of the match that marked the elimination of said team from the 2010 South Africa World Cup. 

Apparently upset over post game celebrations by fans located behind the Argentinian bench, Maradona approached and scolded them, until Dalma, one of his daughters, entered the field and contained him.” 


It’s a shame the man who has entertained us all over the last few weeks with his exuberance and delightful antics had to get involved in something like this. He would go on to say that this loss was “the most disappointing moment in my life” which shows just how devastated he must have been as he walked off the pitch and saw German fans in red and yellow wigs partying like it’s Oktoberfest in July right behind him.

    Blitzkrieg kry ‘n hele nuwe betekenis na dese. Sjaaim, die arme strepieshempies het totaal gechoke…nes ‘n ander span van dieselfde dorp wat toevallig ook strepieshempies dra 👿

    8 goals in twee wedstryde is one hell of a record vir die world cup knock-out wedstryde.

    Lyk my die Germane teen die Kaaskoppe is nie so vergesog vir die final nie
