Haitian Jonel Daphnis came to South Africa with two plans - one his girlfriend knew about, the other was a secret.
Daphnis's American girlfriend, Emily Nichols, was a soccer player during her teen years and it was their dream to watch the World Cup live.
So, along with their parents and Emily's sister, they came to South Africa ahead of last week's opening game which they attended.
This was the first plan.
Then Daphnis began to implement the second - proposing and getting married to his varsity sweetheart.
