South African rugby team
South Africa is famous for having held the Soccer World Cup in 2010. It was held for the first time in Africa. Then, I am going to write about the popular sports in South Africa.
In South Africa, soccer and rugby became famous by Britain at the time before independence. And even now, these two games are the most popular in South Africa.
The rugby team of South Africa achieved the host country championship as a host country of the Rugby World Cup in 1995. The ability of their rugby is world top class!
You should also observe the capability of their soccer team. They may not have achieved good results at the Soccer World Cup yet. However, because of the Soccer World Cup in 2010, people in the world are observing the soccer team of South Africa.
I think that countries like South Africa, which has a sport as an identity, is wonderful.
