Today is the day: the opening ceremonies and opening match of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. While the U.S. team is already in Rustenburg (two hours north of Johannesburg), where they will train today, the crush is at Soccer City in Johannesburg, where South Africa will play Mexico at 4 p.m. local time, 10 a.m. in Philly. The Opening Ceremonies will precede the game and include approximately 1,500 performers.
