Thirty minutes and counting down…South Africa and Mexico are starting off the Cup today in great home court fashion. The game has been widely publicized and so has the Cup! The historic day is here, the home country finally getting their first home court for hosting the Cup and the country is buzzing with energy. The bid for South Africa was announced 6 years ago, so a long-awaited day is finally here. Hopefully South Africa shines with the world watching!

Also playing today is France vs. Uruguay. This historical game is a familiar feeling to the Uruguayan team, since winning the very first World Cup and hosting the Cup in 1930. The first World Cup was held in 1930 and only had 12 teams in the tournament. So this second game of the day is as it is a reinactment of the 1930s games.

My piks for the day are- South Africa and Uruguay.
