Confederations Cup 09: Spain v. South Africa Halftime Report

South Africa are the story here today, They have surprisingly excellent chances and some strong shots on goal, but they have failed to put the ball in the back of the net. They still have been suffering from poor shots and poor shot selection in some instances, but they have been holding their own throughout the half. Meanwhile, Spain are looking like a deadly snake couched in the grass, putting the ball in front of the net and looking to strike at any time. They have continually exploited holes in the South African defense, but their failure so far to finish has resulted in a 0-0 scoreline.

The second half will require a Spanish urgency to take this game seriously. If they attack wholeheartedly, they can certainly salvage the game in 45 minutes. South Africa cannot be unhappy at this point, but they have nothing to lose and will come out playing exactly like their last three halves of football.
