Slovenians top Group C

Ghana's joy was particularly sweet in the pineapple-growing village of Oboadaka back home, where around 200 people danced after watching a World Cup match live, many for the first time, thanks to a television powered by solar energy.

The day belonged to Slovenia too, however.

Having not won a game in previous showings at Euro 2000 and World Cup 2002, the Slovenians danced for joy after going top of Group C following England's 1-1 draw with the United States.

Off the field, South Africa 2010 has had a successful start, with little trouble beyond minor robberies of journalists and a few injuries in crushes at fan parks, despite pre-tournament fears of violent crime.

With millions around the globe glued to the world's most watched sporting event, there were riots in Bangladesh after a power outage cut off the soccer feed, causing 30 injuries.
