The last this I want to talk about in this post is the football world in 2010 as a whole. There has been a bunch of stories that will be remembered for a long time from 2010. Inter Milan won their first Champions League title in over 40 years, Spain won the World Cup for the first time, Two unlikely contestants, Russia and Qatar won the bids for hosting the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, Barcelona beating Real Madrid 5-0, Portugal beating Spain 4-0 after Spain won the WC, Torres ending his goal drought and Liverpool’s victory drought against Chelsea and many more.
Even though there were many great things in 2010, some could argue that there were many embarrassing events throughout the year, the referees. Throughout the EPL and World Cup, there were many mistakes that the refs made and many accused of cheating. Either way, we will remember the greatness of 2010 as we await the New Year in football and hope for the best.
