FIFA 2010 WORLD CUP ADIDAS THE CHAMPIONS JULY 11

FIFA 2010 WORLD CUP ADIDAS THE CHAMPIONS JULY 11
The Blaze roars in delight as he gets his hands on the FIFA World Cup trophy. He leads his team-mates in historic celebration after a tense 1-0 extra-time victory over The Netherlands, in this brilliant painting by Paul Junior Kasemwana; the 36th and last in adidas' 'Live Quest' series. Led by David Villa's five goals in the tournament and the precision passing of Xavi in midfield, La Furia Roja became the eighth country to lift the FIFA World Cup and only the third team to be both European and World Champions at the same time. So 'The Quest' is at an end - it was La Furia Roja and The Blaze that burned the brightest.
