Retrospective: 10 Big South Africa FIFA World Cup Moments

Written by Kevin Mwanza

Ah, the South Africa FIFA World Cup. The world’s greatest players come together to play the world’s favorite sport on a massive world stage. The 2010 World Cup was exceptional and South Africa proved both an able and extraordinary host (with perhaps an above-average amount of local extortion and denial of urgent national issues, per the World Cup hosting norm – just wait until Rio…). Big moment after big moment determined the amount of time a nation’s citizens could justify singing their national anthem – and blowing the infamous vuvuzela. It will go down in soccer history as one of the best.
