The ghosts of Belo Horizonte

There are ghosts in Rustenburg. The mining town in the north-west of South Africa hosts the Group C opener between England and USA, a game with a past that haunts the English and inspires the Americans. The Royal Bafokeng Stadium will echo with those ghosts on Saturday when the two countries meet for the first time on the world stage since a historic win for the Americans in Brazil 60 years ago.

The story is too old to be commented.
