Best Teams of the 2010 World Cup
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
They should have won. They beat England 4-1 and Argentina 4-0. Spain beat all their knockout opponents 1-0. Plus Germany got to 3rd place without captain Ballack and star keeper Rene Adler
You will see, they will become champions in 2014 for sure and get their 4th star on their beautiful black shirt.
Nobody thought that Germany would play this kind of mesmerizing game in the WC. But they did and they did it quiet impressively. If they lift the WC, I won't be surprised.
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!
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.
They really deserved to win and they did it. Look at Germany - this team looked the most powerful among them all but they looked Nothing in match Spain : Germany.
Even when Cesc Fabregas and F. Torres were not on the team, it was fantabulous... Villa, Xavi, Iniesta, Pique, Puyol, Ramos, Casillas, Valdes, Xabi Alonso...
Undoubltedly, the best...
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..
Holland are playing great this year especially with sneijder, van persie and robben, they havnt won it yet and I belive they should this year.
I like the Netherlands because they play very well, but don't have that arrogant attitude like lame Brazil has.
Netherlands has the best players of the world cup of this year and I think they will win the final agains Spain... $ you NETHERLANDS!
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 baby tevez and messi omg they're the bomb
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.
I'm Italian, and support Italy, But I'm gonna have to say Uraguay, they made a turn around. They didn't even qualify last World Cup and this one they made it to the quarter finals
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
Uruguay has a great quality in attacking as it has one of the best strikers in the world! love Uruguay!
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...?
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!
Their flair, technique and passing game open holes in any teams defense, not to mention their superior positioning and improvisation plays.
Brazil is the best team in the world by far the other teams don't even know how to play soccer. BRAZIL all the way.
Better than france and italy... going out in the group stages!
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! )
Things could have changed but the referees sucked this world cup!
They could have beaten Argentina, but the referee was against them
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 rules and Ronaldo didn't play well because he was too busy thinking on the baby...
Portugal got robbed by spain villa got lucky the ball came back to him after he hit the cross bar
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.
Still had a great performance even though a little bit sloppy
Cahill is boss 4 the win
Only team that didn't lose. Went into it 78 in the world and are now 54. The best in my view.
Did not lose or win a game, this shows how well a small nation like New Zealand can do at big sporting events
