Spain heads to their first FIFA World cup
Posted July 9, 2010on:
FIFA World cup 2010 was full of surprises and great game, with new teams performing well and champions not reaching up to the mark. I was lucky enough to watch all matches in this world cup.
My favorite Italy, the defending champions and France failed to qualify the group stages itself. Italy has been my favorite for past 4 to 5 world cups. I still remember being in tears when Roberto Baggio missed the penalty shot in their finals with Brazil in 1994Worldcup.
Brazil were knocked out in the quarter-finals by the Dutch team. I didn’t feel the Dutch played. They were easily letting go off all chances to score more goals. England and Argentina were smoked out by Germany.
This World cup the best matches were displayed by the German side, scintillating display by the Joachim Low’s young team. Sadly they were defeated by, the European champions and FIFA ranking #2, Spain. I guess Mueller might have bought a difference but nevertheless, the La furia roja did play real well.
Another interesting news in this World cup was Paul the octupus :-), predicting all the matches, which just adds to the fun 🙂
My favorite striker in this World cup is Diego Forlan of Uruguay. I do like all the German players, a well sycnhronised game.
So now the Spanish team head for their first world cup, playing against Netherlands. Both the teams haven’t won the World cup so far. Germany will be playing against Uruguay for 3rd and 4th positions.
So 2 interesting games ahead and lets wait and watch who carries the 18 carat and 6.175kg gold trophy. Also whose gonna win other awards like Golden boot(top scorer), golden ball (best player) etc.
Let the best team win!!
