Parreira promises 'hell' for Mexico

Carlos Alberto Parreira promises 'hell' for Mexico

Posted: 11 June 2010 Time: 07:42 am

Bafana Bafana head coach Carlos Alberto Parreira has promised Mexico "hell" when the two countries clash today in the opening match of the Fifa 2010 World Cup. 

"It will be war," declares the Brazilian. "We respect Mexico but we are not afraid. We want to deliver and we gonna give hell to any team that will play against us on the ground, including today's match," he says.   The 67-year-old, a veteran of five World Cups as coach, envisages some nerves from the two teams as most opening World Cup matches he's watched previously are usually "a lot of pressure".   "I have seen many World Cups as coach and working for Fifa and the opening game from my experience is a lot of pressure. The opening game is always the tough game and it is intimidating for both teams, because the whole world is watching you. The whole country is involved so we want the boys to win as much as the pressure will be big.   "We want to enjoy the game and I know it is not easy to enjoy the game playing against a team so good as Mexico. But the good thing about Bafana now is that we have a face, we have an identity," he says.   Parreira also revealed the players are probably relaxed heading into this encounter against the 'El Tri' as he's been allowing them some free time with their respective families.   "We are not in a prison. We are not in a military. The families, the wives, the kids or whatever it is they have been coming to the hotel. Every now and then we also give them free time to go to their homes to see their families. It is important that they refresh their minds and this is not an army. But now that we are starting the chances of seeing their families will be small," Parreira adds.

Three Greek World Cup players had money stolen from their hotel rooms and Chinese journalists were robbed at gunpoint, officials said on Thursday. The incidents in the crime-plagued host country follow the armed robbery of Spanish and Portuguese journalists at a lodge north of Johannesburg on Wednesday.

Police said a group of tourists from Canada, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Tanzania returned to their bus at a visit to a wine estate outside Cape Town to find nine passports, two digital cameras, a laptop and $500 cash missing. A case of theft had been opened, a statement said.

I just hope there're not going to point finger at Naija like they usually do.

Okocha is not a true african , you make such negative remarks about what is supposed to be africa's world cup , would it have been any better if it was hosted in Nigeria ? No , so instead of criticising and being negative , rather sit quietly in your corner and keep your negativity to yourself . Nigeria had a chance to bid for this world cup but did not fearing their lack of infrastructure to host this showpiece , we are hosting it because no other african country could , instead of being negative be proud to be african and try to enjoy this world cup . Obviously there will be crime , everywhere where the world cup is hosted crime will be evident , as tourists it is also their responsibility to try and keep themselves and their belongings safe , be smart to be safe !

I sense a bloody boring night today after the loss to Mexico. Looking at our last line of defence, Mokoena was supposed to be replaced by Booth or Sangweni. That guy I dreamt commiting fouls in dangerous areas.

Lets be honest, Parreira is trying to cover himself, inside his mind he knows exactly that he made a big mistake by not including Benni, Nasif, Erasmus, Pattison and Bryce Moon. Take a look at the Mexico line-up, those players play for the big teams in Europe and our line-up consists of ordinary PSL players. Only three players play abroad. This is a joke. We are no match to The Mexicans. Lets wait for Parreira's comments after the loss. We are going to break the record of the first team in the history of the World Cup to be walloped in the opening match.

My brother, you sound like you already lost hope and that's not what we need here in S.Africa at this point in time. Maybe in Botswana your country of origin. You are a coward and you know what they say about them, they die million time before the actual death.

I'm convinced that you are totaly clueless about soccer because even today you still think that to be in the BB team one has to play in Europe. Well let the brother educate you starting with your Bennie, he has been on the sideline for more than a year now and sometimes not even making the bench. Nasief is a good defender but does not possess any quality that the selected defenders do not have. Erasmus, Moon and Pattison were given a chance and since me and you were not in those camps we are obviously not aware of their performance in those camps so what we can do is to shut the hell up and support the selected players.

Lastly, we can only have a certain number of players in the team which is 23.
