Kati's Tombstones in Soweto does exactly what it says on the tin - it sells tombstones, and it's run by Kati.

And with the turmoil surrounding various parts of the tournament in South Africa, it could not be a more apt place to be.

Bafana Bafana themselves are preparing for their game with France with only the slimmest of chances of making it through to the next round - indeed, they are a very long 33/1 to avoid being the first hosts not to make it out of the group stage.

And yet their problems are nothing compared to their opponents - the French squad utterly self-destructing, with coach Raymond Dominech warning some of his players may refuse to play.

Also in trouble is England's John Terry, who has apologised to Fabio Capello after publically criticising the team's World Cup campaign in a press conference.

Meanwhile the curse of play-acting is beginning to haunt the tournament following Kaka's dismissal and the Chile-Switzerland match

And the much-criticised Jabulani ball is continuing to cause nightmares for goalkeepers and be savaged by fans.

So what would you most like to get rid of from football - and bury six feet under?
