Fans voted for their favourite FIFA World Cup™ game from the past nine editions, and the eighth of those winning matches – Uruguay-Ghana from South Africa 2010 – streamed ‘live’ in its entirety on 11 May.
Uruguay entered the game having finished top of a difficult Group A that contained hosts South Africa before edging past Korea Republic. Ghana, meanwhile, became the third African side to reach the quarter-final stage of a World Cup having dispatched of USA in the Round of 16 after extra time following a second-place finish in Group D. This led to an epic quarter-final at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg on 2 July 2010.
