First and foremost, the vuvuzela is the new world’s torture instrument, as millions of people described it. This instrument that sounds like a bees swarm has all the chances that will never step across South Africa’s borders while many countries already adopted extreme measure against vuvuzelas. For example, vuvuzela is banned from the Wimbledon, from the next year’s Rugby World Cup, from the Standard Liege’s home games and even in Scotland at a music festival. Moreover, bet houses allow people to place bets on whether the vuvuzela will be banned or not in Spanish intern championship.
Speaking of annoying things, many football supporters from around the world have killer thoughts when it comes to Paul, the Oracle Octopus. Paul is not a regular octopus, it is the one that guessed which teams Germany defeated and even guessed that Spain will be the new World Cup winner. And the octopus from Oberhausen never had a single mistake. Germany supporters even created lists on how would they eat Paul, fried or in salad, and even created an anti-Paul anthem. Paul was in media’s attention all this time and now became the most known octopus all times.
The Jabulani ball. Some say it was a mistake, some say all teams played with the same ball. I try to stick with the second ones while I believe that no matter how bad the ball was, as a great team that should not be an obstacle in trying to rank as high as possible in the charts.
Now, if we are to talk about the players’ quality, well, the expectations were higher. This year players have not dedicated as in other years to football, and this was seen on the field, see Fernando Torres as a bad example. The games were under the quality we were used too and many surprises occurred during this World Cup. Among its, those that worth a remember are : England, France, Italy and Brazil that deceived their supporters while leaving the WC maybe too early. But after seeing their matches, it seems that was not too early at all, it is just their value this year.
Another surprise, this time in a good way, was the Uruguay placement among the top 4 teams in the World. They struggled to get there and they succeed. As for the finalist, it was a premiere for Spain to reach the final and also to win the World Cup. However, both Holland and Spain did a great game but the World Cup reached in the hands of the ones that deserved it the most : the European champions, now both European and World champions – Spain.
