Weather: Brisk and Rainy

Today's weather has marked a return to the conditions we saw when we arrived in South Africa nearly two weeks ago. It is cold and rainy here in Bloemfontein, so much so that our customary pre-game training session in the stadium has been moved away from Free State Stadium so as to keep the field in good condition for tomorrow night. There's a lower chance of rain for tomorrow, with hardly any raindrops predicted around game time. It will, however, be in the 30s or 40s. Chilly!

Weather shouldn't be an issue - for us. This is the kind of weather we hope for when we play Mexico in Columbus in Feb, right? Our boys shouldn't have any problems. Spain on the other hand...

not too fond of the winter world cup...its all black coats in the stadium...hopefully fans will buy jackets with their countrues color for next year

I agree with SoBeTB, this could be an advantage for us. It would be nice if our FIFA luck was turning for the better, first a game without a red card, and now some advantageous weather. Whats next, not being in the group of death? Ah to dream.....

donovan, the weather is warmer in the coastal cities during the winter, but none of the CC games are happening in CT, Durban, or Port Elizabeth
