Confed Cup: the up side for the African theme

Two days of Confederations Cup action have gone and Africa's reps have all lost.

Egypt played heroically but lost to Brazil while South Africa made a mess of great chances and drew 0-0 with Iraq.

Despite these setbacks for the African challenge, the fans at the tournament have been loud with their vuvuzelas and other noise-making devices.

It can only be in South Africa! Great atmosphere. If this is a harbinger of things to come then the World Cup next year would be one hell of a noise-maker!
