John Carlin on the World Cup and how far South Africans have advanced

John Carlin, the author of ’Playing the Enemy’, says all those stories, promoted by FIFA, among others, about the World Cup being the 1995 rugby World Cup all over again, about healing racial wounds, uniting the fractured nation and so forth, were off the mark. ’It was much, much better than that. What we saw was just how united and racially healed South Africa really is, how far we’ve advanced since the nervy nineties,’ he says.
