Yes We Will Be Liveblogging the Afternoon Match

For US Americans who enjoyed the Iraq's close loss to España such as you can therefor also partake in the liveblog such as New Zealand and the South Africa.

We're gonna call this the worst match-up in all of the Confederations Cup. South Africa pretty much has to win as they face Spain in their group finale. Lest you think Spain has nothing to play for having secured passage into the next round already, think again.

A win or draw for Spain in that match, and they equal Brazil for the longest unbeaten streak in international play at 35 matches.

New Zealand couldn't get off the pitch fast enough against Spain, yet they held 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 leads over Italy in a pre-tournament friendly. Still, they're not very good. We won't fault people that don't want to scar their retinas. But if you are really desperate for any competitive footie then please come back for kick at 2:30 in the pm (Eastern).

I personally believe that most US americans are unable to watch this match because, ummm, some people out there in our nation such as don't have access to TVs at work, such as, working at bain, and uh, maybe goldman sachs, or dunder mifflin, and so we will not be able to tune in,

no Roy - I was working for a similar firm back east for a few years before I moved out to California - I just chose the name of two random hours-heavy corporations... my brother actually works for GSachs though...
