This was moments after Bafana Bafana scored the first goal of the World Cup to make the score 1-0 vs Mexico. The room was unbelievably buoyant in that moment. Unfortunately Mexico evened the score a few minutes later. Still, I’m proud of Bafana for a great game.
Oddly enough I watched the game in a place that was set up by the French Consulate and had a lot of French fans there, hence the French flag.
