"You're shit.. but your chicks are hot... you're shit..."

sung to the tune of Go West...by a couple of Aussies en route to the stadium.

Thinking back of the trip from Johannesburg to Nelspruit for the World cup game between Australia and Serbia, this song forms the soundtrack.

The day before the game we found our accommodation and headed down to the Fan fest to watch the South Africa Vs France game. France was in turmoil after some mutinous behaviour by some of their players and SOuth Africa needed to win by 4 goals, so tensions were high.

The Fan fest was a sight to behold and with a 2 nil lead South Africa looked the goods for by half time. Though they ended up with four goals they conceded so were eliminated. The party feeling in the Fan Fest was incredible though and an experience we'll never forget.

The next day it was our turn. Our boys also needed to win by 4 goals and although we played an awesome game, we also conceded so we were eliminated.

It was an incredible game though. One of the few times I have been deafened by the Aussie anthem, belted out by 30,000 Aussie supporters on foreign soil.
