Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys reports from Johannesburg as the prospect of a dream World Cup run by the hosts' Bafana Bafana team turns to dread that South Africa will be the worst-ever home nation.

Even a victory against 2006 runners-up France in the last group game may not be enough to see the hosts through.
