Well done SA. You made us proud!

Well Soccer fans it has come and gone, it's hard to believe that the 2010 FIFA World Cup is over...

I am here before you and I can say that I am proudly South African, I'm extremely impressed with the way South Africa handled this event. I know of so many people that were skeptical about the potential of SA to pull off an event of this magnitude, but I am glad they were proven wrong.

Well done to Spain for taking home the cup, although I was rooting for Netherlands to take it! I did hear people complaining about the quality of the match, but I found it a very enjoyable match, I believe people were expecting too much from this match, both teams are after all human.

Now all eyes are on Brazil for 2014 and I can't wait to see what they deliver and I wish them all the luck in the world, I'm also hoping for a 5 star performance from Bafana Bafana! Making me even more proud than they did this year!

Actually before we get to Brazil for the soccer, I don't know how many of you are Rugby fans like I am but I can't wait for the 2011 RWC in New Zealand I think that the Springbokke can make history and take the cup a 3rd time! Anyway that is what's been on my mind, feel free to post your feelings and speak your mind in the comments section

Until later...

Fifa 2010 Finals

Netherlands Vs Spain...

The World is watching, everything has culminated into this, the single match to decide the World Champions of Soccer. As an South African I have to say I am very impressed with the way we handled the world cup, in the start I had a very apathetic attitude towards the whole concept and I have to say that my opinion changed when I saw the people in the streets celebrating this great event.

That being said that after my home team Bafana Bafana did not make it all the way I decided to put my faith in Netherlands and they have not disappointed at all and I am sure they will be taking the cup home, despite what Paul is saying about it.

Feel free to leave your comments about your favourite teams or any predictions you might have for the game. Good Luck Netherlands you can do it!

Until later...
