Finally, the curtain on the World Cup has come down, and with it is over the 'big' awards.
After a month packed with 62 games and 32 teams, there are lots of other prizes to be handed out for this first World Cup on the African continent.

The Golden Vuvuzela: South Africa may have been the first World Cup host to fail to get out of the group stage, but Bafana Bafana was a delight from Siphiwe Tshabalala's blistering left-footed shot in the opening game to the team dancing its way into the stadium for its final match (a win over the French, more on them later). The home fans were even better, enthusiastically cheering for every team and giving this World Cup a most distinct soundtrack with the blare of their vuvuzelas.
