The 2010 South Africa World Cup thread

And man, it's great that pot is legal in Holland. They're gonna need it.
The WC ends with lots of stuff for FIFA to ponder.

One of the most important is (apart from the use of technology): they have to find a way to make a WC when the best players (Robben, Torres, Kaka, Rooney) don't come to play exhausted and injured.

youre a dick. I feel bad for the players. they fought hard.
Still have no clue WHY, they took von Brockhorst out....he had been nails all game long.

Now I have some controversy here. The free kick right before the Iniesta goal....the Schneider free kick outside the penalty box, richeched off of Fabregas's back....instead of a corner kick, Spain was awarded the Goal kick....that led to the winning goal.

That is controversy there, that will not be talked about.

Umm...but that didn't lead to the winning goal. Dutch should have cleared the ball, but gave Fab a chance to pass to Iniesta. Dutch should have been awarded a corner, but not awarding it didn't lead to the goal.

Yeup...they have to make sure that there is enough time for players to recover from the league play.

It was a free kick, set piece, that went off of Cesc's back. Goal kick ball goes down to the Dutch side....goal.
Spain!

Wasn't Eliah on the left wing and got doubled and lost the ball prior to the goal ? It may have been a foul on Elias, but i think the freekick was a little earlier.
SPAIN! Long, long game. But the better team won. Spain allowed no goals throughout the playoff.

Bah, only good thing is seeing Iker Casillas lift the trophy.
