"The new World Cup soundtrack: The Vuvuzela"

In today’s international press review, we look at various World Cup gaffes.

The World Cup is on the front page of several international newspapers, including Le Parisien, The International Herald Tribune and The China Daily.
 
The Daily Mirror focuses on the South African horn, the Vuvuzelas. Many football players and fans have complained about the noise they made. The tabloid talks about the origins of the instrument.
 
Meanwhile, Robert Green has made the headlines in the British press. The English goal keeper let the ball creep into the net during in the game against the US, on Saturday. His gaffe was reported in The Independent, The Daily Telegraph and The Sun, to name but a few.
The Canadian newspaper The Vancouver Sun refers to Green’s mistake as the “Hands of Clod”, comparing it to Maradona’s “Hand of God” in the 1986 World Cup.
 
The Guardian talks about another blunder: a broadcaster accidentally switched to an advert during the game and more than a million fans missed the England goal.
 
The other top story today was the legislative elections in Belgium. The Flemish paper De Morgen talks about “a new Flemish lion”.
Bart De Wever’s separatist party won nearly 30% of the votes… According to Le Soir,
the NVA is like a “tsunami that will change the face of Belgium”.
