The first team out

Don't get me wrong: I was absolutely delighted that Denmark won 2-1 over Cameroon, and that we are now looking forward to a thrilling match between Japan and Denmark about who gets to the last-16. Howver, the lions of Cameroon proved quite domitable, and are the first team of the World Cup to be certainly out (Nigeria for instance, still has a theoretical chance). It is a pity that it is the great Cameroonian side, and well, it certainly augurs badly for African teams: South Africa and Nigeria have a slim chance pf progressing ; Ghana will be facing a tuff match against Germany; Algeria are up against a difficult USA, while Côte d'Ivoire will have to do their best against Brazil and North Corea.
It is looking difficult for African teams during the first World Cup in Africa. I heartily hope Ghana makes it though!
