There are basically two classic ways to open a major tournament. The first way is a serious shock, like when Cameroon defeated Argentina in 1990, or when Senegal did the same to France in 2002. The alternative is for a host nation to start with a bang, with a big moment — think Siphiwe Tshabalala in 2010, or Philipp Lahm in 2006.
