World Cup Photos: The Greatest South African Orphan Quote Ever

by | 18th, June 2010

READY for the Greatest South Africa World Cup quote ever? By an orphan?

In between the football, various millionaire footballers and telly pundits have been partronising the locals by saying how joyous they are. The faces shown are always black because joyous Boers are, obviously, hard to find.

Alan Shearer sat on the BBC sofa and opined that South Africans are just so-so happy-happy that they don’t care if they win the World Cup. That was said after they’d drawn their first match with Mexico.

But the best quote of the tournament is from Thambo Mzuli Aged 6, who seems to be media savvy and on message.

The England World Cup squad visited an Orphanage in South Africa, where they met Mzuli, Says she:

“It’s so great to put a smile upon the face of those who have no hope, and no prospects for the future”

Ing-er-land.
