Three Things We Will Never Forget About The 2010 World Cup

In yesterday's final, Spain scored the only goal in the 116th minute, getting a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands. Thus, Spain achieved the country's first-ever world championship, and became the eighth team to win the World Cup.

Though the South Africa 2010 World Cup is over, soccer fans will probably never forget:

1. “Goal! Goal! USA!” Landon Donovan’s stoppage-time score against Algeria was the high-water mark of the Americans’ solid run.

2. Hand of not: Luis Suarez took the most beneficial red card in history in the quarterfinals, clearly handling a sure Ghana goal late. Asamoah Gyan choked on the ensuing PK, giving Uruguay a road to the semifinals.

3. Star-struck: Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo was average at best; Argentinean Lionel Messi looked good on the field, but didn’t score any goals; injuries limited Didier Drogba; Michael Ballack didn’t even play. It was not an auspicious tournament for some of the world’s brightest lights.
