Guatemala might not be one of world football's powerhouses but they provided another confidence booster for South Africa who beat them 5-0 last night. It is now 11 games unbeaten for Bafana Bafana with the opening game of the World Cup just 10 days away. Mokoema earned his 100th cap ahead of his country's final 23-man squad being named today.
Opponents of South Africa beware of the following:
1. 90,000 crazy home fans
2. Deafening noise in the stadia making it impossible for team mates to communicate
3. Temperatures dipping to near zero in the evenings
4. Playing at 1800 metres can be a nightmare
5. Underestimating the hosts of any World Cup can lead to your first round elimination
