Spain were deserved winners of the 2010 World Cup, insists FIFA president Sepp Blatter.FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been analysing the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and believes that Spain were worthy winners of the tournament.
Speaking in an interview with FIFA.com, the 74-year-old supremo also added that the prize may have gone to either Africa or Asia for the first time in the past few tournaments, before reiterating La Furia Roja were worthy of the title.
He said: “We thought that the champions may have come from a new continent. [South] Korea were very close for Asia in 2002, and this time Ghana were two centimetres away from reaching the semi-final, but Spain deserved their title.”
Blatter added that he felt there were many hugely positive aspects of the inaugural African World Cup, and he saw the game develop on the international stage.
He continued: “I saw beautiful things, really. Football has become eminently strategic, and it is nice for the viewer that it is not just attack and defend."
