The World Cup starts tomorrow with the matchup between host South Africa and Mexico. The match will be played at newly built Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg. Kick-off is at 10am Eastern Time.
History points at an upset victory by the South Africans here. Host-teams traditionally fares well if they are scheduled to play in the tournament opener. This situation has come up seven times, and the host-team has never lost in the first match of the World Cup.
