JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - SEPTEMBER 12: The South African national soccer team plays a friendly game against Uruguay at the Ellispark stadium on September 12, 2007 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The team, ranked 77 in the world, has had a history of bad performance and more than ten coaches since 1996. Carlos Alberto Parreira, the legendary Brazilian coach, now coaches them and he has the tough task of building up the team until 2010. Soccer is the most popular sport in South Africa, and because of the upcoming World Cup 2010 in South Africa the interest is increasing. For the first time the World Cup will be held on the African continent. .(Photo by Per-Anders Pettersson)....
