Players not happy with World Cup ball

Several players are going all out against the new World Cup ball, with more than one comparing it to those bought at a supermarket.

And this time it's not only goalkeepers who are complaining. Strikers, defenders and midfielders are also lashing out at the Adidas ball just a few days before the monthlong tournament is to begin in South Africa.

The ball is called Jabulani, which means "to celebrate" in isiZulu, but not many are celebrating it so far. It's hard to find a player who is happy with it, and those who don't like it are not saving adjectives to describe their feelings.

very entertaining opening game, unlucky for south africa who probably should've sealed the win, but i think the draw was a fair result for that one.

france and uruguay should be a good one too

Just finished watching the first game... Damnit. I was really pulling for South Africa to get the W, but I guess a draw isn't to bad either considering how much Mexico was suppose to be.

This 2nd game will be a fun one.. Watch out for Uruguay.
