MEDAL AS RECEIVED BY THE SPANISH PLAYERS AND STAFF ON THAT FAMOUS DAY IN JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA ON JULY THE 11TH 2010
COMES WITH OFFICIAL BAG
Extremely desirable winner’s medal issued for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and awarded to a player, coach, or staff member from Spain’s national football team. Gilt, 104 gm, 58 mm, by Bertoni of Milan. The front depicts the World Cup trophy in relief with raised text, “FIFA World Cup”; and the reverse features the raised text: “2010, FIFA World Cup, South Africa.” The handsome medal hangs from its original blue FIFA ribbon.
The finals of the 19th FIFA World Cup were held in South Africa between June 11 and July 11, 2010, marking the premiere instance in which the event was hosted on the African continent. After an opening loss to Switzerland, the Spanish national team won their remaining six matches—the last four by a 1-0 score line—to earn their first and only World Cup victory; Spain became the third team to win a World Cup outside their own continent and the first European team to ever do so. A magnificent keepsake that honors Spain’s greatest athletic achievement.
