Wish you were here
The son of Abedi Pele will be in Soccer City this evening, but he won't be able to play any part in his nation's quarter-final with Uruguay due to suspension. He'll be missed, after emerging as one of the stars of this competition. The captain of Ghana's U-20 World Cup-winning team is a talented winger with a bright future ahead of him. His loss will be keenly felt.
zulu slang of the day
If you're at a game here with some locals, then you should expect a few cries of 'laduma' during the game. It's generally screamed when a goal has been scored, translating literally to 'it thunders' in Zulu.

Asamoah Gyan to score v Uruguay @ 3/1
Considering the Rennes man is the lone striker for Ghana and takes their penalties, he's sure to have quite a few goalscoring opportunities at Soccer City today.
