A few quotes from here.
"The world has now seen that South Africa is ready to stage the 2010 World Cup finals, which kick off on June 11 next year, world football governing body Fifa said on Monday.
On a scale of one to 10, South Africa's readiness for the 2010 showpiece, following the current successful staging of the Confederations Cup, rates an eight on Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke's scale."
...and regarding the so called robbery of the egyptian team :
'We mustn't sensationalise'Meanwhile, levels of crime reported since the beginning of the Confederations Cup are no different to previous Confederations Cups hosted by other countries, local organising committee head Danny Jordaan said on Monday."
I have been to all Confederation and World cups since 1994 and the levels of incidents in this cup are no different to other countries," he said.
He was addressing journalists along with Deputy Police Minister Fikile Mbalula in Sandton."The question of theft happens everywhere ... it has happened in Germany where fans were robbed."
He said it was unfair for international media to sensationalise reported crimes.
"We mustn't sensationalise because it's very, very wrong. You must base your report on facts. Charge us on our track record, not on what you think might have happened."
"It being an unfortunate incident, we are investigating. If you bring people into the hotel as friends you must bear responsibility for them. So if you invite people who turn out to be security-unfriendly then it is unfortunate because we can't follow you up until your room."
Newspapers reported that the Egyptian players may have been robbed by guests attending a post-match celebration in their suites. -- Sapa
