The 11th of July 2011 marks exactly one year since the end of the first Fifa World Cup on African soil. It was on that day that Spain rewrote the history books when they lifted the trophy for the first time after defeating The Netherlands 1-0 at a packed Soccer City in Johannesburg.
In the final, Spain, the European champions, defeated third-time finalists the Netherlands 1–0 after extra time, with Andrés Iniesta's goal in the 116th minute giving Spain their first world title.
