We on this side of the pond aren't allowed to see the first video.  The ball 
boy's goal is the strangest thing.  According to the NPR blog feed--those 
without cable t.v. must fall back on such sources--the U.S. are currently 
taking an uphill route in the game against Sweden; they gave away two penalties 
before scoring themselves.

Browsing NPR, I came across this, "Equatorial Guinea has also come under 
scrutiny for its players' eligibility. Just before the team's first game, FIFA 
suspended striker Jade Boho on the grounds that she had played for Spain within 
the past five years. And as sports analyst Stefan Fatsis told All Things 
Considered host Robert Siegel, "three of their players have been accused of 
being men."
Since those accusations arose during last year's African championships, two of 
Equatorial Guinea's players — who said they were sisters — have been left off 
the World Cup team."

Also they have a photo of the opening ceremony:


How would you describe the white balloons exiting the big inflated thing?
