Blatter gives South Africa thumbs up

By Yamkela Xhaso

Fifa president Sepp Blatter has given South Africa's ability to host the 2010 World Cup finals next June the thumbs up.

This follows the successful hosting of the Confederations Cup. Blatter acknowledged that there have been problems, but said the local organising committee will solve them before the World Cup.

He says South African fans deserve a Fair Play award for their tremendous support.

Blatter says the United States shone by reaching the final against Brazil, while Bafana did well to meet Spain in the playoff for third place
