    South Africa police hope US gets knocked out early in World Cup?

    CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- South Africa's police commissioner said Friday his job will be easier if the United States is knocked out of the World Cup in the first round, avoiding the massive security challenge of a visit by President Barack Obama.
    General Bheki Cele told a parliamentary police committee meeting in Cape Town it was "50-50" whether Obama would visit Africa's first World Cup, but officials had been told that if the Americans make the knockout stage of the tournament then Obama might jet in.
    "One challenge is the American president, who is coming, not coming, coming, not coming," Cele said. "It's 50-50 as we stand. ... Our famous prayer is that the Americans don't make the second round. They get eliminated and they go home."
    Cele then paused and said, "Don't print that," to laughter from the audience that included members of parliament and police officials.
    "We are told if they go to the second or third stage, the American president might come," Cele said. "It's one big challenge that we will be facing."
    South Africa's top policeman said he had provisional confirmation that 43 heads of state would attend the World Cup, and "those 43 will be equal to this one operation" if Obama makes the trip. Cele said he met with a senior FBI official who said he did not know if Obama would travel to the World Cup.
