South Africa, Midfielder
You wouldn't want the host nation to have to pin their hopes on one man but South Africans will indeed be looking to their talismanic midfielder Steven Pienaar to at least get Bafana Bafana into the knockout phase. Pienaar is coming off his best season yet for Everton, in the English Premier League, and will be the fulcrum from which South Africa's best moves will surely spring. Watch for him to get in on the action via key assists and even the odd goal. Whether it will be enough to see South Africa through the group is another question.
