Siphiwe Tshabalala

The Football Fives Podcast team is back up to four this week, and the focus of the show is a tournament that really wasn't very good. FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa was an unspectacular affair, won by a Spain team that perfected the 1-0 win on their way to an historic triumph against the Netherlands.

In amongst the five questions - Football Fives, innit - we ask whether the Spain were the right team to win the World Cup seven years ago. We start by picking over England's tournament, from qualifying to ignominious exit at the hands of Germany, and identify our biggest memories of the competition.

And, of course, we indulge ourselves. When we look back at a tournament from history, we like to spend some time talking about the games and goals we enjoyed the most. Slim pickings in 2010, maybe, but we manage it anyway. There were moments. There really were, we promise.
