That is when Gelson Fernandes scored a goal. It was during the second half (in the 52nd minute) and with it Switzerland pulled off their very first win against Spain.

Fans may not realize that Spain has only ever lost two games out of the last fifty played and they even had a winning streak going of twelve straight wins in a row.

This major upset makes the FIFA 2010 World Cup all the more exciting and nerve racking for fans, both those who were there (there were 62,000 at the match) and those watching at home.

San Francisco residents watching noted that Spain dominated the offense with 25 shots on goal with the Swiss having had only 9. The Spaniards also controlled the ball almost 75 percent of the time.

The only cards to be issued during the game were against the Swiss (four yellow cards).

San Francisco resident and major FIFA 2010 World Cup fan, Francis Witham, watched the game on ESPN. “That was definitely a major upset. You were sitting on the edge of your seat from that moment on until the end of the game.

JOHANNESBURG It’s the sporting event on everyone’s mind. It’s the FIFA World Cup final 2010 with Spain vs. Netherlands. No matter who wins, the organizers are promising viewers a spectacular closing ceremony that’s going to be high tech. It will have pop star Shakira performing, compared to the more traditional African based ceremony which began the tournament with the world’s eyes watching.

Jermaine Craig from FIFA’s organizing committee told press that the show on Sunday at Soccer City will be “more youthful and a bit more technologically advanced” compared to the opening ceremony on June 11. local time in South Africa, that’s two hours before the final match, which will be watched by millions around the world, kicks off.

Shakira, the pop star from Colombia, will sing the official anthem of the tournament, “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).” Shakira sang the same song at a June 10 concert for the World Cup in Soweto.

Will San Francisco residents be watching the closing ceremony?

“Absolutely,” says World Cup soccer fan and San Francisco resident, Francis Witham. “It’s been a very exciting few weeks. There have been quite a few surprises. Teams have been knocked out that many thought would win. Now it’s time to see who are the champions in the FIFA World Cup in 2010.”

San Francisco residents can follow the World Cup final on ESPN or at any of the sports bars around the city or they can follow news updates on local San Francisco station, KTVU. KTVU news comes on locally at 5pm, 6pm and 10pm.
