This 11 day extravaganza has been a showcase of some astounding soccer skills, fierce attacking, robust defending and a say die spirit. Besides this, some magical moments and dominating performances also form the highlights of FIFA world cup 2010.

Anyone could hardly forget the goal of Siphiwe Tshabalala (South Africa) which was the first FIFA world cup 2010 goal. From their onwards, started a fierce battle of skills and talent which marked the advent of soccer greatest event in history. Under rated teams performed exceptionally well , top contenders of the tournament seemed to be caught in a fix and some least expected teams turned the foils emerging as strongest contenders.
The earliest of all surprises came from Argentina, which under the coaching of legendary Maradona seems to have re discovered its football world. After a very hard time during world cup qualifiers and a testing of 108 players in 20 months, Argentina came out of the blues and became the first team to enter pre quarter finals. Next came in three times world champion Germany, which blasted Australian defense by scoring 4 goals in their first game of FIFA world cup 2010 match schedule. Most talked about side Brazil was no behind in spite of an average performance, they managed a win in their first game. The real Brazilian cyclone started against Cote de Ivorie where the five times world champion side showed their metal with a 2 1 win.
However, there have been a few shocking performances by some expected winners of FIFA World cup 2010. Defending champions Italy are facing the heat to cross the group stage. England failed to register a single win in their two matches and are struggling to make it through in the next level. Portugal appeared shabby in their first game against Ivory Cost and ended up with a draw. Another stunner came from Euro champions Spain. Considered as the strongest contender in this tournament, Spain experienced a humiliating defeat by Switzerland in their first game. The biggest shock of FIFA world cup 2010 came from former champions France, who are on the verge of becoming the first team to be knocked off from FIFA world cup 2010.
Under rated teams like Switzerland, New Zealand, Chile, Paraguay, Ghana etc performed exclusively to grab this opportunity of to perform at world stage. Till date the teams which have qualified for the knockout stage are Brazil and Argentina. The teams like Spain, Portugal, Chile, Uruguay, Mexico, Germany, Ghana are just a win away from next stage.

FIFA World Cup Soccer South Africa 2010 Germany Uruguay Battle for Third Place Paul Oracle Octopus
This weekends world cup fixtures will showcase the tussle between Group A and D on Saturday and Group E and Group H on Sunday. Funny but true that it is the first (Group A) and last (Group D)group of the first four groups (ABCD) and the first (Group E) and last group (Group H) of the last four groups that will be playing. So that leaves us with Saturday Groups A, D, E, and H. Today I officially decree that SADEH is short for South African Destiny Enthrones Holland.
Miroslav Klose summed it up best when he said that winning as a team is more important than establishing personal records during the world cup competition. Paul the oracle Octopus has selected Spain to beat Germany. However, predicting a winner is different from being the winner. It will indeed be a hotly contested game on a cold winters night in the nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth. My gorgeous daughter will actually be attending the game; how I envy her context.
Never on a Sunday means that you have not made it to the final. The fact that Germany and Uruguay will be playing on Saturday does not mean that the game is of lesser value; just that it is the playoff for third and fourth place. I sincerely hope that that known villain and soccer handballer will not play in this game. He does not deserve a spot on the team. I think Uruguay will be better off without him.
Uruguay from Group A, drew with France, beat South Africa and Mexico, beat Korea and Ghana beat Ghana, was beaten by the Netherlands and so Uruguay plays on Saturday against Germany. Germany from Group D lost to Serbia, beat Australia and Ghana and lost to Spain and so Germany plays on Saturday against Uruguay.
It will indeed be a sad game as the nostalgia will finally dim. Folks will realize that all good things have to end. All the hype, all the rush, all the adrenalin, all the tension twill soon be over for the next four years. I would like to wish Brazil well as they prepare to host the next world cup in 2014. I am sure that they will take many lessons learned from us fun South Africans.
And then we turn our attention to Sunday. Wesley Sneijder says Holland from Group E must win against Spain from Group H because he wants his team to win. The form guide would indicate that Holland is the only unbeaten team to play this weekend. Right now I am more focused on the closing ceremony because my nerves just cannot take it anymore. I have no nails left and that includes toe nails.
No matter what you say, think or do with your vuvuzela, the giant vuvuzela on the unfinished highway in Cape Town has been certified by officials of Guinness as the biggest horn in the world. Some say the noise is a nuisance, others say it disturbs the birds others say it is just black noise.
