Brazil, 2014
WorldCup 2014The 20th FIFA World Cup, june 12th - july 13th 2014.
South Africa, 2010
WorldCup 2010First World Cup to be held on african soil. This is the 19th edition of the FIFA Football World Cup, and has been held every 4 years since 1930, except during the second world war.

The 2010 edition promises to be one of the most competetive ever, with both asian and african football getting ever more progressed. After the qualification rounds, we are left with 4 teams from Asia, 6 from Africa, 8 from America, 1 from Oceania and 13 from Europe. Since Australia qualified in the Asian pot, New Zealand qualified from Oceania.

10 Stadiums have been built and modernized, from Polokwane to Cape Town to Durban.

As for the favorites, South America and Europe are always a force to be reckoned with, what can Maradona do with Argentina? Dunga with Brazil? And can Capello finally get an English team performing?

So get your earmuffs out, as we remember from last year, the Vuvuzelas will be out in numbers!
Germany, 2006
WorldCup 2006The 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany was number 18 in the history of the FIFA World Cup. Germany last held the World Cup in 1974. Italy defeated France 5–3 in a thrilling penalty shootout in the final, after full time and extra time had finished 1–1. It was the first time Italy won a World Cup match on penalties after three failed attempts.

Zinedine Zidane became the fourth player in World Cup history to score in two different finals, along with Pelé, Paul Breitner and Vavá, in addition to being tied for first place with Vavá, Pelé and Geoff Hurst with three World Cup final goals. In the final against Italy he was sent off in the 110th minute for headbutting Marco Materazzi. Despite the red card and the controversy that followed, Zidane was awarded the Golden Ball as the best player of the competition.

Host nation Germany defeated Portugal 3–1 to finish third. The 2006 World Cup was also one of the most watched event in television history.
Korea & Japan, 2002
WorldCup 2002For the very first time the World-Cup went in Asia. And for the very first time it was split between two nations, Japan and South-Korea. Argentina was the big favourite, followed by the title holders France, and as always Brazil. But this turned up to be the World-Cup were the favourites failed. Both France and Argentina failed to qualify through the first rounds. And an incredible comeback of Ronaldo helped Brazil to the final. In the final Brazil faced Germany and won 2-0 after two goals by Ronaldo.

Latest Match Comments
Italy - Brazil (1982)
The tragedy of Sarria..

Fed. Rep. of Ger. - France (1982)
Must have been an exciting match with four goals coming in extra time. Alas, this was in 1982 prior to all-sports cable networks or any genuine interest in the USA for this awesome game. The only televised match I saw was the final, NBC network

England - Fed. Rep. of Ger. (1966)
Doris Hay, when the English team was accused of cheating in 1966, immediately I thought of the 1986 World Cup and Diego Maradona's "hand of God" goal (essentially a goal that should not have been allowed) that helped Argentina eliminate England.

Italy - Austria (1990)
There was a player with the name Verga in his back, who was him?

Uruguay - Colombia (1962)
Falta en la nomina de uruguay su portero Roberto Sosa

Poll of the Decade
