FIFA World Cup 2010

Confirmed for BBC Two on 12 July at 8.30am to 9.45am

Saturday 12 July



An in-depth documentary looking back on the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, which saw Spain lift the World Cup Trophy for the first time.

The documentary is part of FIFA’s 14 World Cup films, which turn the spotlight on the seminal moments of the global spectacle that is the World Cup.

Having won Euro 2008 and sailed through qualification, Spain were heavy favourites in South Africa and they didn’t disappoint. After losing their opening game of the tournament to Switzerland, the Spaniards went on a six-game winning run, failing to concede a single goal in the knock-out stages. Their impressive form – and their tika-taka style – eventually saw them beat the Dutch 1-0 in the final thanks to Andres Iniesta's extra-time goal.
