As hosts, South Africa qualified automatically for the 2010 World Cup, so there is no real recent competitive form to speak of. Having suffered some magerial turmoil in the build up, preparation could hardly be considered ideal for the world's 85th ranked nation. Carlos Alberto Parreira left for family reason, was replaced by fellow Brazilian Joel Santana, who was sacked shortly after by the SAFA, opening the way for Parreira to return.

With some talented players at their disposal, such as Everton's Stephen Pienaar, South Africa have a decent squad but in a very tough group alongside France, Uruguay and Mexico it is hard to see South Africa making it past the group stages.

For their opening match, South Africa are currently 2.87 with Bet365.com to beat Mexico.

South Africa's biggest weakness is goal scoring, but they have a tight defence, so expect a few scoreless draws on their way out of the competition.

South Africa are currently 81.00 with Sportsbet, which is probably an accurate reflection of their slim chances.
