With Argentina’s Fans

Another great day in Johannesburg!

I was supposed to go visit the Apartheid Museum, but we ended going to the Argentina vs Korea game. It ended up being one of the most exciting games of the Cup so far, with a 4-1 final score.

Argentina’s people were the most exciting fans that I’ve seen so far, along with the South Africans. The whole stadium was covered with banners from Argentinian home clubs to pictures of Maradona and Che Guevara. The game was dominated by Messi and his boys from start to finish, and Argentina is now going to move to the next round.


Luc with Argentina’s finest.

The other story out here was the upset of France by Mexico, which adds to the high number of upsets that have been hapening so far in the tournament. Otherwise, it’s been quiet. It’s still really cold out here, so people tend to stay inside more than they normally would at a World Cup. Tomorrow, I’m going to the USA game vs Slovenia.
