Left work a little earlier today to catch this much hyped clash of "Drogba vs Ronaldo". We were lucky to get parking just on Main Street/Govan Mbeki really close to the stadium considering that we only left the office around 14:00 and the game started at 16:00.
From the colour of the clothes and flags, there definitely seemed to be a lot more Portugal support and the stadium erupted when Christiano Ronaldo ran out onto the pitch. I don’t agree with his man of the match award (I suppose someone had to get it), but his turn and shoot early in the game that rattled the bar was quite awesome to see. Both sides had some good chances, but Ivory Coast definitely had the best of them thanks to some great attacking football and skills. The score was still 0-0 and Drogba came on with 20 minutes or so to spare with a huge welcome from the supporters. Unfortunately even with him on the scoreline remained unchanged, but it was a hard fought and great game to watch in the group of death. Ivory Coast flew their flag high for the African countries and they are a side to keep an eye on in this tournament.
