Spain, the BBC and South Africa…all winners in their own right.
Well done Spain. Not a fantastic final, but it was good to see the European Champions claim the big prize. What a feeling to celebrate your country winning the FIFA World Cup. One day perhaps, England…hmmmm.
Great job by the BBC World Cup team with Gary Lineker at the helm of mutli-channel coverage over the past 4 weeks. On top of the TV coverage, it’s been great to press that red button for highlights and Motty’s musings and to grab live games on the BBC website. As always, the BBC do great online with blogs, commentary bites and tweets mashed with live TV. Laptop, PC, TV or mobile we’ve been kept in the World Cup loop for the past 4 weeks. Going World Cup Cold Turkey will be tough. As will getting the vuvuzela out of my mind!
Buuuuuuuuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Good job South Africa. Great festival of football.
