South Africa's 12th man

Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys looks at whether the vuvuzela can help the Bafana's World Cup.



    South Africa's football team, the Bafana Bafana, believe the vuvuzela trumpets blown by their supporters can be worth an extra man on the pitch as they host World Cup 2010.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys goes to Soweto township for the hosts' opening match to see the noisy horn of Africa in action against Mexico.

    With qualification in Group A evenly poised, the Bafana Bafana and their 12th man could be here to stay.
