The World Cup 2010

by Uhur

When somebody says South Africa, I immediately think about the FIFA World Cup that took place four years ago. It was the first time it took place on African soil. This shows the fact how widespread soccer is throughout the world. This was a great opportunity for the country to introduce itself also.

For example, the first thing that comes to my mind, is the whistling in the stands. It can be heard quite good during the game between South Africa and Mexico (the first game of the World Cup):



It can be heard in the background, like big bees buzzing around. The fans made the sound basically during every game. The sound is made by a local instrument called vuvuzela, a meter-long horn made of plastic.
