The World Cup has officially kicked off with a 1-1 tie between host South Africa and Mexico.
This one game gave viewers yet another glimpse at exactly what the World Cup is all about. The hosts were given little chance to keep up with the Mexicans and showed that any team can compete at any time.
South Africa came out a little shakey giving up three solid chances that could have spoiled the opener for them but they slowly gained composure heading into halftime.
The second half gave all the little teams hope when a counter attack put South Africa up 1-0.
Mexico caught some breaks as the hosts continued to push the tempo but missed multiple opportunities and eventually gave up the equalizer.
No one gave South Africa a chance and they proved that no game is predictable in the futbol world.
Now fans can go on enjoying the festivities of the World Cup knowing that sometimes even the favorites need some luck on their side.
