Bafana Bafana legend Siphiwe Tshabalala's goal to open the 2010 FIFA World Cup is now a firm part of sporting folklore.

The iconic Peter Drury's commentary describing that spine-tingling moment will go down in the history of broadcasting. A video from a spectator who was present that day at Soccer City in Johannesburg has come to the fore as the world awaits another historic moment in Qatar.

In the dregs of YouTube's ecosystem has emerged a video filmed by a member of the crowd who was in attendance and - incredibly - managed to capture the goal in its entirety.

It was accompanied by the words of Drury:

"Mphela... Modise... it's a really good ball. It's Tshabalalaaaaa! GOAL BAFANA BAFANA! GOAL FOR SOUTH AFRICA! GOAL FOR ALL AFRICA! JABULILE! REJOICE!"

Drury would then add another iconic line with:

"BAFANA BAFANA HAVE POPPED THE FIRST CORK ON THEIR DAY OF THE DAYS!"
