But it is only now, months after the World Cup has been over and the fans have long gone home, that South Africa can finally access how it moves forward and how it overcomes the huge number of challenges it faces.
The feeling of national pride and unity engendered by hosting the World Cup did not last long. Job losses are on the rise and South Africans really begin to feel the impact of the global recession.
