The 2010 World Cup has, at long last, landed in South Africa. Argentina’s first match, against Nigeria, kicks off at 11am Argentine time on Saturday, and you can read the first of two previews of Argentine hopes and fears for the tournament to come here on ESPN Soccernet right now. Throughout Argentina’s stay in the tournament, keep an eye on Soccernet as well as the When Saturday Comes homepage and UK newspaper The Guardian’s Fans’ Network for all the latest from me (yep, I’m going to be a busy boy) and a few other crack Argentina-based bloggers, as well as fans of every other participating nation. As well as carrying links to anything I write elsewhere, HEGS itself will of course keep an eye on the domestic situation too, when I can be bothered to wade through transfer rumours for something worth putting up on it. If you’ve not already done so, there’s never been a better time to start following me on Twitter. Oh, and if you’re in Finland, the sports magazine Veikkaja (I hope I’ve spelled that right) has a special on Maradona, which I’ve contributed to. No, I didn’t write the piece in Finnish. I’m not that good.
