Confederations Cup Semi-Finalists: South Africa, Brazil, Spain and USA
South African fans will be heading back to Ellis Park in droves to support their team in their semi-final against Brazil.
Spain will take on USA on Wednesday night in the first Confederations Cup semi-final, and South Africa will be up against Brazil on Thursday night.
This after a dramatic Sunday night of soccer, in which USA beat Egypt 3-0 in Rustenburg and Brazil thumped World Champions Italy 3-0 at Loftus in Pretoria.
Brazil made winning look easy against Italy, with a double coming from Luis Fabiano, and an own goal from Italian defender Andrea Dossena to seal the fate of the Azzurri.
Now Bafana Bafana fans will go back to Ellis Park, where South Africa played to a goaless draw with Iraq in the Confederations Cup opening game, to watch South Africa take on the South American champions.
