FIFA 2010: The Final Chapter

July 11, 2010

Viva Espana…. 1-0 ….. Congrats Spain!!

 After a one month long historic event, the finals are here. The final chapter of 2010 edition of worldcup will go down in the history books as a new champion will emerge and will become only the eighth country in the World Cup’s history to become the winner of the coveted cup. While Netherlands has been in the finals two times earlier (1974, 1978) but the victory has eluded them on both the occasions. For Spain, this is their first time in the finals and are hot favorite to win the cup, even Paul-the psychic Octopus predicts them to win. Whoever wins, it’s going to be a spectacular game of football. Netherlands has been unbeaten this world cup and if they win the cup, they will emulate Brazil’s record  of winning all the games in the Worldcup. If Spain wins, they will repeat German history in 70’s to win both the Euro and World cup in succession. And in the end, whoever wins, South Africa has already won. They hosted the event with great success amidst all kinds of criticism, skepticism and whining complains (vuvuzelas, jubulani balls, heights of stadiums and so on). Skeptics went silent but not the vuvuzelas. Thanks South Africa for hosting successful Worldcup and showing us the colorful world of Africa and being such a wonderful host. People will take away more than memories and vuvuzelas from Africa, people will carry forward the idea of Ubuntu as well, that’s the hope. Finally, the beautiful game of football is the winner. Where politicians have failed in bringing together the fragmented world to agree on one thing, sports has the strength to do so and Football Worldcup has done that again and again. One Game, One Cup, One Month, One World…. Let the game begin, let the flags wave and let’s rejoice the beautiful game that is Football!
