World Cup 2010 South Africa

The Nigeria squad at the World Cup 2010 in South Africa were not so different from the 2002 Super Eagles team in terms of performance.

They also crashed out of the tournament at the group stage losing two matches and drawing one.

The Nigeria World Cup 2010 Squad were however able to register three goals that took them nowhere.

Lars Lagerbäck was the coach in charge of the Super Eagles at the South Africa 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Spain won the 2010 World Cup after defeating the Netherlands one nil in extra time. Germany took the third place position while fourth place went to Uruguay.
