Group C / South Africa vs. Saudi Arabia

SITE: Bordeaux. TIME: 7 a.m. TV: ESPN2 (highlights Ch. 34, 9 a.m.).

* ABOUT SOUTH AFRICA: For South Africa to advance, it needs to win, 2-0, and France must also win, 2-0. That may be asking too much.

* ABOUT SAUDI ARABIA: The Saudis have lost two games by an aggregate margin of 5-0.

* OUTLOOK: South Africa should win, but asking France to put two goals past Denmark's Peter Schmeichel is pie in the sky.
