2010 | Istoria Cupei Mondiale din Africa de Sud

Date:

Cea de-a 19-a Cupă Mondială s-a disputat în Africa de Sud între 11 iunie și 11 iulie. După o fază de calificare, care include un total de 204 de echipe naționale (un record), 32 de echipe ar primi un loc în turneul final, inclusiv națiunea gazdă calificată automat Africa de Sud. Slovacia și Serbia aveau să-și facă debutul în turneu.

Background
FIFA World Cup 2010 would be historical in terms of the location; it was the first time ever that the tournament was played in Africa (Morocco had been rather close to be the host in 1994, 7 votes against 10 votes for USA). But this time it was decided that the tournament would be arranged in Africa and consequently only African countries candidated for the hosting – Egypt and Morocco came closest in the bidding process.

The football audience that had followed the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup on television had been acquainted with the brass instrument named Vuvuzela, that filled the stadiums with a high and monotonic sound during the games. Since the appearance of Vuvuzelas disturbed a part of the spectators and conceivably the players as well a debate concerning prohibition of the Vuvuzelas arise before the tournament. No ban was, however determined.

Format
Formatul a fost copiat de la turneul anterior. Înseamnă că o primă rundă cu o fază de grupe formată din opt grupe de patru echipe va trece la un al doilea tur cu o fază eliminatorie.

Orașe și arene
Meciurile s-ar juca în douăsprezece orașe și în aceeași cantitate de stadioane (a se vedea căsuța „Orașe și stadioane” pentru o prezentare generală). Cel mai mare stadion unde s-a disputat finala a fost Stadionul Maracana (Estádio do Maracanã). Fusese reconstruit pentru turneu și avea o capacitate de 74.738 (care putea fi comparată cu capacitatea de aproape 200.000 în 1950).

turneu
Brazilia, Germania, Spania și Argentina au fost patru dintre cele mai mari favorite înainte de începerea turneului. Argentina a avut pe teren duo-ul spectaculos format din Diego Maradona ca antrenor și Lionel Messi. După performanțe impresionante ale echipei argentiniene, ar fi o oprire bruscă cu un 0-4 împotriva Germaniei în sferturile de finală. Brazilia ar fi, de asemenea, eliminată în sferturile de finală de Olanda. Spania și Germania, celelalte două mari favorite, s-ar întâlni într-una din Semifinale, iar rezultatul ar fi o reluare la finala Euro 2008 dintre cele două echipe.

În cealaltă semifinală, Olanda ar învinge Uruguay într-un joc oarecum brutal. Brutalitatea care a escaladat din partea Țărilor de Jos în finală ar fi trebuit să ducă la două cartonașe roșii.

Când Andrés Iniesta la prelungiri a marcat singurul gol din joc pentru Spania, s-a simțit moral meritat. Spania care a fost campioana europeană a reușit să câștige următoarea Cupă Mondială, pe care doar Germania de Vest o reușise înainte.
