10. Siphiwe Tshabalala vs Mexico in group stages: Opening the 2010 World Cup with the first goal in his home country, Tshabalala's left-footed screamer caused a mass number of those infamous vuvuzelas to go off.

9. Luis Suarez vs. South Korea in group stages: The Uruguayan striker fulfills his boyhood dream of scoring in a World Cup with a dazzling, off-balance curler into the upper corner of the net.
