Security patrols in South Africa are on high alert today after UK intelligence sources claimed they had uncovered details of an al-Qaeda plot to wreak havoc and destruction at this summer's World Cup which starts on Friday.
The information relates to a plan to carry out a terrorist attack during the Saturday evening Group C game between England and the USA - al-Qaeda's two principal enemies.
With Algeria also in the group, al-Qaeda operatives have been able to sequester themselves in and around Cape Town under the cloak of being fans of the north African country, and without fear of being questioned by the police.
There are thought to be as many as 6 of the terrorists in the Cape Town area, and any one of them could 'mingle in' with supporters and detonate himself inside the stadium.
Thousands of English fans have already bought tickets for the USA game, and many more are expected to travel down to South Africa on Wednesday and Thursday 'just for the aggro', although the UK government has confiscated the passports of 3,200 known troublemakers.
David Cameron had also authorised the dispatch of a crack squad of the British Army's finest death's head commandos into South Africa by parachute, to root out the evildoers, although the whole contingent were arrested when they accidentally landed on the runway of the main airport at Johannesburg.
Prediction: England and USA 1 al-Qaeda 57
