If you can’t make it to South Africa for the World Cup, you can at least take a virtual tour of all the stadiums before you watch the 3-D action.
Google has a 3-D tour of all 10 World Cup stadiums and the nine host cities on Google Earth or Earth View in Google Maps. You can also see Street View images of seven of the 10 stadiums.
The 3-D tour offers views of each stadium and flyovers of the host cities. Plus a drumbeat. Fans curious about this weekend's England-U.S. match should start with Royal Bafokeng Stadium, above.
