    JOHANNESBURG – Landon Donovan insisted the Americans had a historic victory “stolen” from them after their dramatic World Cup comeback to tie Slovenia 2-2 at Ellis Park on Friday. “They [the officials] stole a goal from us,” said Donovan, who launched the U.S. revival with a brilliant strike at the start of the second half. “It was a good finish and a good goal. It was the guy’s [Coulibaly’s] first World Cup and maybe he got caught up a bit. This is the World Cup and you can’t just take away a goal from a team like that.” With the...

    World Cup 2010: North Korea's secret society exposed to the world's gaze By Rory Smith Last updated: June 15th, 2010 There are three things you need to know about North Korea. One: they are not called North Korea. “Among the 32 teams of the World Cup, we are the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” said the country’s football coach, Kim Jong-Hun, a man who clearly despises convenience in all its forms. “And I do not think we should be called by any other name.” Right. The second thing you need to know about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is...

    SNIPPET: "The North African terror group al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb has threatened to attack this summer's World Cup games in South Africa. "How amazing could the match United States vs. Britain be when broadcasted live on air at a stadium packed with spectators when the sound of an explosion rumbles through the stands, the whole stadium is turned upside down and the number of dead bodies are in their dozens and hundreds, Allah willing," reads a statement the group published in a recent issue of the Jihadi online magazine Mushtaqun Lel Jannah (Longing to Paradise)."

    South African police will have a shoot to kill policy at next summer’s World Cup in a bid to cut gun crime. The war on weapons is called Operation Wanya Tsotsi, which translates as: “You will soil your pants, criminal.” Deputy minister of police Fikile Mbalula warned armed criminals that officers were entitled to open fire at them. He said: “If you are a criminal and you are gun-toting, our message to law enforcement officers is clear – shoot to kill.” “We say we are going toe to toe, tooth for tooth, nail for nail with the criminals.

    A giant calabash, the traditional African cooking pot, is rising from the red earth between Johannesburg and Soweto. Two thousand workmen toil into the night to make sure that the vast structure is ready to welcome 94,000 spectators at the opening ceremony of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, two years from this week. Across the country, foundations are being laid for the first African cup and the biggest party in South Africa since the fall of apartheid. The Government has seized on the occasion to sink billions of pounds into a creaking infrastructure built for white minority rule but hopelessly...

    South Africa is going to build a new high speed train but it will not be ready for the 2010 World Cup deadline. Known as Gautrain, it's project leader Jack van der Merwe said yesterday that it will not meet it's deadline. The R20bn project was scheduled to start contruction this year but the financials were not completed in time and this has delayed the project. Van der Merwe said they hoped to reach financial closure in about three to four weeks time. After that, it will take a further two to three weeks for construction to begin.
