According to S. Africa govt officials, the number of foreign visitors to the country hit the magical one-million mark. Moreover, World Cup had also created 130,000 jobs.

The mood in S. Africa is pretty gloomy after Ghana’s elimination from the World Cup. Ghana (also known as “BaGhana” or “Black Stars”) were the last African team in the World Cup but were beaten on penalties by Uruguay.  What a disappointing moment?!  

I wonder when we’ll see Ethiopians playing at this level. Let alone the World Cup, I long to see them playing for the African Cup! It has been ages since Ethiopia shined in the international soccer filed. Unfortunately we’re not blessed with a football federation which has willpower to see our boys in the international arena. All they give us is empty promise! I hope the govt also gives attention to the area it neglected for long: Ethiopian sport. (Ben)
