Slovakia's FIFA World Cup cover

On 8th June 2010, Slovak Post celebrated its country's first finals appearance at the FIFA World Cup 2010 by issuing a moving image stamp of a footballer striking a ball.
Considered an outsider, facing Paraguay, New Zealand and Italy in Group F, Slovokia pulled off a major surprise at the World Cup on Thursday, beating defending champion Italy 3-2 and unexpectedly advancing to the round of 16. Congratulation Slovakia!!

Being a soccer fan, it is always exciting to see underdogs creating upsets in major tournaments.
Being a Philatelist cum soccer fan, it is always fantastic to receive a football theme cover. Moreover, this is the first cover addressed to my new house. Thanks very much Robert Brnka!
