World Cup memories - on video



The wonderful spectacle that was the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa may have passed us by in a blur of colourful celebration, but that doesn't mean it has to be consigned to the 'out of sight, out of mind' bin. Here we've put together some of the more memorable moments, so you can come back anytime to relive the most fantastic sporting month in South Africa's history.

We will keep adding more clips over the coming days, so be sure to come back so as to not miss out on this incredible trip down memory lane.

Opening Ceremony
Fighter jets, vuvuzelas, a giant dung beetle and 100s of costumed dancers ensured that the tournament got off to a spectacular start at the stadium that resembles a calabash - Soccer City in Johannesburg.
Video clip
Tshabalala goal
The goal that got a country believing. A game in which tens of millions of South Africans lived every moment and this, without doubt, was the best of them. One of the goals of the tournament.
Video clip
Goal of the Tournament
Sometimes fate just steps in and says 'right, time to leave an indelible memory'. This stunner, from Netherlands skipper Giovanni van Bronckhorst in the early stages of the semifinal against Uruguay, is one of those.
Video clip
Top ten goals
From rockets to great teamwork, sublime footwork to bullet headers, they are all here in SuperSport's ten-best 'goalden' memories from 2010.

Video clip

Villain
Luis Saurez's 'save' against Ghana in the last minute of extra time, an act that denied Africa its first-ever semifinalist, and enabled Uruguay to go through to the last four following a penalty shooutout.
Video clip
Controversy
Perhaps the single biggest error of the World Cup, and one that will lead to goalline technology finally being brought into the game. Frank Lampard's clear equalising 'goal' against Germany that never stood.
Video clip
Controversy
While goalline technology may lead to more goals being awarded, it's not going to help this sort being disallowed. A disastrous decision that allowed Argentina to take a 1-0 lead over Mexico in their quarterfinal.
Video clip
Super Bloopers
Robert Green's howler against the US will certainly be the enduring blooper image from the World Cup, but there were plenty of others that derserve honorary mentions, not least of which Yakubu's horror miss against South Korea when it was easier to score.
Video clip
Magnificent Seven
Just one of those games when it's all too easy. After a 0-0 draw with the Ivory Coast, it was important for Portugal to bounce back in their next game. The floodgates didn't open - they completely fell off their hinges...
Video clip
Controversy
The ugly side of the game. Players acting like they've been shot in the face when tapped on the arm puts many people off the game, and here's a clear example as Brazil's Kaka gets a red thanks to some pretty awful acting.
Video clip
That's handy
Brazil's ace striker Fabiano joins the Henry and Maradonas of the world with this beautiful piece of handling before scoring a crucial goal against Ivory Coast. Now Sepp, about that TV-challenge technology...
Video clip
Extra time, Africa time
The highlight of the World Cup for African sides. Ghana's Asamoah Gyan keeps his footing, when many a prima donna would have collapsed, to score a glorious extra-time winner against the USA in their Ro16 clash.
Video clip
We wuz robbed
One of the great fightbacks of the tournament was robbed of a dramatic ending when a late 'winning' effort from the US against Slovenia was disallowed. All that replays showed were three good reasons to award a penalty to the unlucky States.
Video clip
A dream dies
It was a brave fight to the death, but ultimately SA's deserved victory over France was not enough to prevent them from becoming the first hosts to exit in the first round. Re-live all the drama from Bafana's final match.
Video clip
No, not that Diego...
They may have not been everyone's favourites coming in, but the man who couldn't hit a stage with a guitar for Manchester United almost carried Uruguay all the way to the final. Here are all five of Diego Forlan's goals.
Video clip
Out of Africa
All the drama as Africa's dream died, from 'that' penalty miss, to the cheeky winning chip in the penalty shootout, and the inconsolable Gyan as Ghana were eliminated in the quarterfinals by Uruguay.
Video clip
Heads, you win
For all Spain's top-class passing and possession football, they just could not break down the Germans in the semifinal. Cue some shaggy bloke to come up with an old-fashioned bullet header to clinch it.
Video clip
The Commitments
While England had a World Cup to forget, you can't question the commitment of someone like John Terry. Here he puts his head on the line with an outrageous attempted swallow-dive block against Slovenia.
Video clip
Top saves
While the goalscorers may get all the glamour headlines, it is defence - and goalkeepers in particular - that win matches. Here we pay tribute to the men between the sticks, who made some astounding saves in SA.
Video clip
Fans
South Africa provided the perfect setting for the fans from all over the world to come and celebrate in this great sporting festival - and boy, did they come to the party!

Video clip

Hit and miss
When it's a World Cup final, you expect a tense affair with not too many clear-cut chances. This one was proved no different, and the difference between winning and losing is seizing that precious chance....
Video clip
Oh what a tangled Webb
The jury is still out on referee Howard Webb's performance in the final, though no doubting the players made it a tough task. What we do know is there were a record 14 yellow cards and a red - and they're all here.
Video clip
Let's get this party started...
It's been a long time coming for the underachieving Spaniards, so when they did get to lift the trophy they were gonna enjoy it. Relive the moment when Villa, Iniesta, Xavi and the boys exploded with joy.
Video clip
Closing Ceremony
Superstar Shakira got the ball rolling, and some incredible special effects then had the world in awe as South Africa said goodbye in spectacular fashion before Spain and the Netherlands did battle.
