I had the pleasure of enjoying my last World Cup game last night and have to say it was a joy to watch the game as a neutral. Whilst I started off hoping Portugal might win it after their demolition of N.Korea, it quickly became apparent that a different Portugal team had rocked up for this game. I reckon the best I can say about them is that Spain were brilliant! Apart from Torres who's been ineffectual through most of the tournament the rest of them were great and what a pleasure to watch the likes of David Villa in the flesh. He really has been impressive in this World Cup.
It was great to do the Fan Walk from the city to the stadium with some mates and we had a good laugh. The vibe was brilliant once again. I really do think that Cape Town has done a stunning job at hosting its part of the World Cup and I think South Africa as a whole comes out of this event looking fantastic having achieved something that many said was not possible in Africa.

Portugal's goalie tested yet again. He was by far their best player!
