Chad's Uncle Jack's co-worker Riann is South African, so he and his wife, Yvette, were going to join us for the Italy game. Instead his company sent him to Korea for work the whole time we were there - bummer. So Yvette brought her brother Gerhard. We met them at a Thai restaurant at the beautiful V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Yvette and Gerhard's father was a pharmacist! Colleen's friends Candice & Paul joined us for dinner and the game as well. (Thanks Gerhard for dinner!)
Jen's friend Stephanie works for McDonald's and as a major sponsor of the World Cup we were able to buy tickets from her. Our seats were in the 9th row! (Thanks Stephanie!)
With Alan's newly developing camera skills, some of these pictures are better than the one's the professionals take. Here is the Italian team standing right in front of us during the National anthem.
And after their goal.
