What will be the legacy of World Cup 2010?
Spain has beaten The Netherlands in extra time of the final of the football 2010 World Cup. What will be the legacy of the tournament?
The World Cup has seen some surprise results, including early exits of leading contenders such as Italy, France, Argentina, Brazil and England. Smaller teams have fared much better than expected.
The tournament has not been untouched by controversy. A Newsnight investigation has revealed that Fifa was warned the games could be subject to match-fixing.
The next World Cup could also see a shake-up in the refereeing system, after officials failed to spot a goal by Frank Lampard in England's match against Germany.
Have you been following the World Cup? How has it affected the place where you live? What did you think of teams' performances? Is the final result a good thing for the smaller countries who performed well? Is football due for a shake-up?
