Vice Presidents Hope for US-South Africa World Cup Final

Published June 15, 2010

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — The U.S. vice president and his South African counterpart share a dream: their nations meeting in the World Cup final.

Before going into private discussions on climate change and rebuilding Haiti, Joe Biden and South Africa's Kgalema Motlanthe discussed the serious business of football. Motlanthe was the first to raise the possibility of a U.S.-South Africa final, to which Biden responded: "From your lips to God's ears."

Later Saturday, Biden will attend the first U.S. match, against England, before returning to the United States. Biden is wrapping up an African tour that also has taken him to Egypt and Kenya.
