About World Cup 2010

With more than 3 million spectators watching 64 matches, the 2010 World Cup was a month-long thriller for soccer enthusiasts. The 2010 FIFA World Cup was hosted in South Africa, which won the honors over Morocco and Egypt. Residents and guests of the first African nation to host the World Cup finals were treated to 32 men's national association teams. Nine cities played host to the matches in 10 venues across the country. The final match, played in Johannesburg, saw Spain defeat the Netherlands 1-0 in extra time. Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta scored the game's only goal in the 116th minute, cementing his reputation as one of the most talented players of his generation. He was named Man of the Match for his performance in the 2010 World Cup. Fans of the World Cup or any of the participating teams can indulge their passion for the sport with a 2010 World Cup poster, available from reliable sellers on eBay. Look for a new or match-used 2010 World Cup ball, or a mini ball for a striking souvenir of what Brazilians call "the beautiful game."
