Redemption and Greed: the 2010 World Cup
The 2010 Fifa World Cup will take place from June 11 to the July 11 this year, in South Africa. It is the 19th World Cup and the first one hosted by an African nation. It will be the biggest sporting event eve, rand over a billion people are expected to follow the 32-team tournament, won four years ago by Italy. Such a huge event will be exciting, over-analyzed and inevitably fraught with problems.
