SIDESWIPE – AskGavino made some bold predictions about the FIFA World Cup. How did things work out? Ghana came within a whisker of being the first African side to ever reach the semi-finals but Gavino was right that no African team would reach the final. Sunday’s finalists, Spain and the Netherlands, were both in Gavino’s “only seven countries can win in South Africa” category. The others were Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Italy and England. The latter was Gavino’s overall pick, but they flopped with a tactical horror show against Germany that saw them defeated 4-1. So, overall, a reasonable set of predictions. It was good to see host nation South Africa perform well despite not reaching the knock-out stage. All the great publicity South Africa has received should help project this soccer-mad country to greater economic prosperity – we certainly hope so. Good luck to the finalists on Sunday!
