Best Teams of the 2010 World Cup

Jhrwwe

The Top TenXW

1Germany

You will see, they will become champions in 2014 for sure and get their 4th star on their beautiful black shirt.

Questions of their ability were raised, many predicted a last 16 exit against england. their all around skill, pace on the break, many thought they would tire themselves out. But germany answered the questions of critics with authority, scoring 4 goals in 3 different games, beating "better" teams of the tournement. Unlucky against Spain, they deserved a penalty, which could have changed the game - ACG

They would have trashed Spain like Argentina and England 4:0

Best team of the tournament who showed the world what well drilled n well coached team capable of beating anyone in spite being a young squad and the believe in each other without standout player, a brand new style of German football... all teams watch out

2Spain

They won the 2010 FIFA World Cup for heaven sake! Torres and Villa were amazing, Puyol and Ramos are the best defenders, Xavi played well, Casillas, champion goalkeeper and Iniesta, scored the champion goal that led to Spain winning the 2010 FIFA World Cup! - phantomtheimmortal

What a Midfield! Xavi, Alonso, Iniesta. They maintain possession like Gods with Villa and Torres to finish. Topped off by an incredible defense, especially in versatile Ramos, this is one of the best teams of all time.

SPAIN is just an awesome team. Dude, WHAT is so special about Germany...? Oh well, this comment is for Spain, no others. "Spain, you rock! " (and I am not even spanish! )

The team won, if you didn't choose Spain you're an idiot.

3Netherlands

Netherlands is the only country who has won all matches until now in this 2010 World Cup competition. That says enough. Germany scores a lot, but like Vin Diesel said: "It doesn't matter whether you win by a inch or a mile, winning is winning. " And as last! Brasil got ASSKICKED by the Netherlands, while they where 1-0 ahead. No further comment..

The Netherlands are owsom!
And they won from Brazil. And with Sneijder, Kuit & Robben we will win. We are alredy in the finals, I mean Urugay. Come on, we are gonna win.

Holland are brilliant undefeated and with great players like kuyt, van persie, snider and robben just class (by the way how did usa even make dis list)

Netherlands should've won but Robben missed the chance ;( - STANCAKE

4Argentina

messi may not have scored in this world cup.. but without him, so many goals couldn't have happened.. and tevez, the power in his shots... magnifiscent team.. they just didn't have good finishing in this world cup...

this is the best team beating southe korea 4-1, beating mexico 3-1 and qualifying and best of all won all matches of world cup 2010

Many great players like Messi. Although some of the footballers are old, but whatever this is still the best World Cup team

argentina is the best country, the best team, the best all. argentina is the best in all ways! :D vamos argentina carajo

5Uruguay

The player of the tournament: Forlan
Uruguay provided the most enjoyable games to watch in the entire tournament, from their game against ghana and their game against netherlands and their game against germany, incredible team

They have to be higher on this list. First of all, they finished in fourth. Also, they played excellently to get there, knocking off teams such as Mexico, South Korea and Ghana. Finally, they were led by the Golden Ball win, Diego Forlan. - Blueyays

They might not have the most well known or particularly talented players in the world but they have great passion and pride playing for their country (unlike England or France)

Uruguay has a great quality in attacking as it has one of the best strikers in the world! love Uruguay!

6Brazil

Brazil is and always will be the best team in the world (in my opinion). They fought well against Netherlands but couldn't pull it off, sadly. Brazil played good, but Netherlands played better, so what can I say...? - mattarous

Although Brazil lost to Netherlands, it doesn't matter. With respect to strategy and individual performance, Brazil is still the BEST! GO Brazil! The way this country plays is what you call real football! - kusanagi_sanasara

Their flair, technique and passing game open holes in any teams defense, not to mention their superior positioning and improvisation plays.

Brazil will always be the number one in my book. - MissScorpio

9United States

They may not have played with the sophistication of Spain, the counter-attacking symmetry of Germany or the pressing skills of Uruguay but they were pleasant on the eye, extremely fair and not the usual cynical approach in today's game. Well done... (I'm Irish so no bias! )

we voted for u.s.a. because they are the most awesome soccer team in the world and have good foot work and even thouhgt they lose they stick together no matter what and together we will win!

They should have beaten ghana they were good but just didn't want to play defense early they had a win taken away from them what can yah say (not the ghana game) - dabulge

Things could have changed but the referees sucked this world cup!

10Mexico

MEXICO THIS TIME AROUND REALLY HAD THE SQUAD TO BE ATLEAST IN THE TOP 4, BUT THE COACH JAVIER AGUIRRE DIDN'T CARE FOR THE TEAMS BENEFITS, HE PUT INJURED VETERAN GUILLERMO FRANCO, INSTEAD OF EXCELLENT FINISHING YOUNG TALENTED JAVIER HERNANDEZ, EVERYTIME HERNANDEZ WEN'T IN HE SCORED, THE COACH WAS JUST BRIBED WITH AN OFFER BY FRANCO'S PEOPLE THAT IF HE LET HIM PLAY, HE WOULD BE ON THE WAITING LIST TO COACH IN THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE, SO BASICALLY THE COACH WANTED MEXICO TO BE OUT OF THE CUP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. PLUS THE ARGENTINA GAME WAS A ROBBERY, THAT GOAL CASUED MEXICO THIER COOL, THE MEXICAN TEAM OBVIOUSLY PLAYED BETTER, SMOOTHER, AND SHUT DOWN MESSI, YOU SHUT HIM DOWN YOU SHUT DOWN THE PLAYS, AND THUS THE ENTIRE TEAM. MEXICO GARAUNTEED TO SHOCK THE WORLD IN 4 YEARS TIME. BRAZIL 2014 HERE WE COME. - skullgangjewelz

they rock.. they have really good and sexy playerz... I'm sure they are going 2 win 2014 world cup fifa

They could have beaten Argentina, but the referee was against them - TheAhiru17

The Contenders

11Portugal

They played 1 ranked Brazil and tied, even though the brazilian side should of been down a man foran intentional last man hand ball, then they played 2nd ranked Spain and lost to an offside goal, plus got no calls in their favor especially Ronaldo which was knocked around.

portugal played very nicely. but anyway they were better than argentina portugal lost only from 1 goal argentina they lost the match with 4 goals. if that match was draw so surely portugal was the winner of world cup I love cristiano ronaldo.

portugal is far out the best time... the only team in this world cup to score 7 goals in one match... no other team compares to them... they got cheated out by stupid decisions made by the ref... everyone else who disagrees with me can go to heck

Portugal rules and Ronaldo didn't play well because he was too busy thinking on the baby...

12Italy

Still had a great performance even though a little bit sloppy - robertoantonioortuso

Italy should have gone to the last 16 because when they were 2-1 down against Slovakia Fabio Quagliarella scored a goal which was given offside when it was clearly onside.

13Australia

Kennedy and his gang rox!

Cahill is boss 4 the win

14New Zealand

Did not lose or win a game, this shows how well a small nation like New Zealand can do at big sporting events

Only team that didn't lose. Went into it 78 in the world and are now 54. The best in my view. -

Beat Italy, the team that won the last World Cup - madcat701

Defied all the odds against them

15South Korea

South Korea reached top 16 game for the first time in other country worldcup (expedition game)

16South Africa

They beat France and it was the first time in history to do so

17Serbia
18Japan

Yeah..that's true..but I think Japan should be in 11 or 12 rather than Top 10 broww...
