Top 10: Goals of South Africa 2010
1. Giovanni van Bronkhorst, Holland vs Uruguay
One of the great goals of the tournament, in one of the great games of the tournament, by one of Holland’s greatest ever players – turning out in his 105th match for the Oranje. The defensive midfielder only grabbed a handful of strikes in his international career, but this one will linger long in the memory.
A country mile from goal, in an area where only a cross makes real sense, captain Gio whips the controversial Jabulani hard and true into the top corner, helping to secure Holland’s first appearance in a World Cup final since 1978.
