Who will Win the FIFA 2010 World Cup/Who And Which Country Won the 2010 World Cup
Who won the FIFA 2010 World Cup
UPDATE Who Won the FIFA 2010 World Cup
On Sunday 11th July 2010 Spain won the 2010 World Cup final against the Netherlands. In the match Spain were the team trying to play decent football - Holland trying to stop Spain. In the first half particularly Holland played dirty and committed lots of horrible fouls and at least two players should have been sent off by the English referee Howard Webb. It did get a little better in the second half and the game became quite close although Spain were the better side.
The game went to extra time and after the 116 minutes Iniesta scored a goal for Spain and I think the whole world rejoiced. It was a victory for football!
Well done Spain - maybe in England we can have as good as side as you (OK maybe that is being a little optimistic!)
Final Spain 1 - Netherlands 0 after extra time Iniesta goal 116th minute ref Howard Webb!

Looking at the Poll
The response to this poll has been great and as I write this there have been 222 votes in less than a month. Please share this this article with your friends and make sure they vote. I want to see who everyone in the world thinks will win!
So far it looks like Spain are the most popular nation by quite a long way with 20% of the votes, then Brazil with 15%, Argentina with 14% and then England with 13%! I have looked at this poll in much more detail in my hub titled Who You Think Will Win the FIFA 2010 World Cup

This section is about the countries which are expected to win as they often do well and have some great players.
Brazil are going to be popular and many people will probably think they will win the tournament this year as they have won it so many times. They have some incredible players too. However even in the group stages they have to face the Ivory Coast and Portugal who are both very good sides.
Spain will also be expected to do very well and I think they will at least reach the semi final and will very likely get to the final. With players like Fabregas, Torres and Villa along with many others they should be rated as one of the best teams in the world.
There are many other countries with good squads though who might be able to do well in the World Cup.
England have a very easy group and as always have some brilliant players. Fabio Capello seems to have helped a lot and now they could be an outside favourite!
Portugal are also a very good side with the fantastic Cristiano Ronaldo and can be a tough team to beat!
Germany don`t have that good a set of players but they always do well and as we all know the German`s never give up and are a very strong side who came third in the last World Cup although they were the host nation.
I think the Ivory Coast could be the dark horse though with a strong side with a few great players including Drogba. They could beat a lot of the favourites and get very far!
Other teams to watch out for include Holland and Italy who could both do very well. Also you can not write off Argentina with just a certain Lionel Messi, Tevez and a few other quality players!
South Africa may also be worth a mention considering they are the host nation of the 2010 World Cup
Lionel Messi Great Goals Video
Video featuring Lionel Messi, probably the best player in the world scoring some fantastic goals. The goals at the top are brilliant! Watch out for him at the World Cup!
Overall I don`t think there has ever been so many teams who could do so well in a World Cup with all the teams listed here being possible winners I think it could be a very exciting and nerve racking World Cup! With "weaker" countries like the Ivory Coast, countries who have not won for many years England, the favourites and the host nation among others there are many geniune contenders for the World Cup and many teams that could easily get to the semi final!
So there are my predictions for the World Cup.
My Opinion on Who Will the World Cup
I am hoping for England to win the World Cup but while they may get very far I think Spain will probably win the competition this year as they have so many strong players like Torres, Alonso, Villa, Casillas, Puyol, Iniesta, Fabregas, Pique and more who are all world class players and they are a very good side who also play decent football so I would not really mind if they won!
