I’ve always enjoyed the Boston Globe’s Big Picture series – though I don’t actively follow it: today, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a link to this week’s Big Picture set, “Soccer in South Africa”, on the SARocks website. So, check out all this week’s Big Picture photos here. To whet your appetite, however, two of my favourites:

Spain won 2-0 but both teams qualified for the next stage of the tournament. (PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOU/AFP/Getty Images)
