South Africa, ranked 87th in the world, is going to try to avoid being the first host nation to lose the opening game. Yeah, right. Mexico, ranked 17th, is not as strong as it has been in years past. Still, it should be no problem for the El Tri to beat the Bafana Bafana (The Boys). I don’t think it’s going to be much of a game. Prediction: Mexico 4, South Africa 1.
