About Wesley Sneijder and His Performances at 2010 World Cup   by Sally Green

Wesley Sneijder was born on 9 June 1984 in Utrecht. To some extent, we can say his football talents and achievements may owe to his special football family. His father was a football player and his older brother Jeffrey and younger brother Rodney played for Stormvogels Telstar and AFC Ajax respectively.

The Dutch footballer Wesley Sneijder currently plays as a midfielder for Italian Serie A club Internazionale. Sneijder was awarded the Johan Cruijff Award for "Young Player of the Year" in 2004. After graduated from Ajax Academy, he first played for AFC Ajax and Real Madrid and then he signed for Internazionle in 2009. His performance was pretty well so he won the European Treble in his first season including Serie A, Coppa Italia and UEFA Champions League. Wesley Sneijder made his debut in April 2003 when he was 18 as a regular player for Dutch national team and represented his country at European Championships and the remarkable 2006 World Cup. Now he is representing the Netherlands soccer team at the 2010 South Africa FIFA World Cup.

If you pay attention to the competition you should be surprised by his wonderful performances even the good performances of the Dutch national soccer team. The victory of Dutch against Uruguay 3-2 naturally advanced them to the finals where they will face Germany or Spain. In this match Sneijder scored a significant goal in the seventieth minute, it was his 5th goal at 2010 World Cup which put him on the same level with David Villa. When they came across Japan they win 1-0 by Sneijder's shot. Then in the round of 16 Dutch against Slovakia, Sneijder scored in a 2-1 victory. In the quarter finals against Brazil, he also provided what was at first thought to be an assist for the first goal, but was later credited with the goal. Because of these achievements Sneijder was named man of the match on FIFA's website three times. Now who will be the champion of the 2010 World Cup will be announced, will he scored the 6th goal? Let's look forward to his good performances and the exciting final match.

Thousands of fans and tourists are expected to descend on South Africa to watch their favorite teams take centre stage in their national team uniforms. Overall, an estimated six billion people will watch the matches worldwide.

The CEO of the World Cup Organizing Committee, Dr Danny Jordaan admits that it's been a tough road at times, but he finds inspiration in the men and women who have worked tirelessly to ensure they go from the planning to the playing stage. "When you look at them and you look in their eyes you get a sense they've all decided, 'we won't let you down, we won't let the country down', and that they're going to make this work," says Jordaan. He hopes that when the final whistle has blown, Nelson Mandela and the many other freedom fighters will be smiling in the realization that the World Cup was delivered by both black and white coming together, that all their efforts and sacrifices were not in vain...

This World Cup's mascot is Zakumi, a cute leopard with green hair! He was born on the 16th of June 1994, the year that apartheid ended. The 'Za' in Zakumi is the international abbreviation for South Africa and 'kumi' means ten in many African languages. It also means 'come here' in some southern African languages. The green and yellow colors of the mascot stand for the host nation's flag and playing strip. Zakumi's designer, Andries Odendaal, explains that the animal's green hair was designed to provide camouflage on the football pitch.
