Today a year ago, Spain won the 2010 FIFA World Cup at Soccer City, beating Holland 1-0 in the final, and these are some of my favourite memories of the 19th edition of the biggest show on earth !!
For 5 glorious weeks, this was my home away from home. Working at the International Broadcast Centre during the 64 matches was a fantastic experience.
I will never forget the moment when Mario Kempes signed my book. He who scored 2 goals in Argentina’s 1978 triumph against Holland in Buenos Aires.
On my way to the Round of 16 clash in the fabulous Soccer City, Argentina vs Mexico.
Under a full moon, amongst the Argentina fans, watching Diego Armando Maradona pacing the touch line. Utterly unforgetable.
Friends for 20 odd years, eventhough we supported opposing teams in the final !!
Indeed a once in a lifetime experience, thank you to everyone who help make it a success. Let’s do it again, soon !!
