Spain are World Champions

Sunday, July 11, 2010

After a month of football, Spain are World Champions, and you can't say they didn't deserve. The best team on the night, they ran out 1-0 winners against Holland, who did themselves proud in reaching the final.

I don't think anybody thought Spain had a chance of winning the World Cup after their first game defeat to Switzerland. However, from then on Spain were impressive, to say the least.

It wasn't easy for them tonight. After a poor first half, the second half saw more chances, for Holland in particular. Arjen Robben was sent through on goal, twice denied by Iker Casillas.

In the last three minutes of extra time, Cesc Fabregas passed to Andreas Iniesta in the box to fire Spain to victory. Obviously, the Spanish team were ecstatic, the Dutch players were less so.

So congratulations are in order. Spain deserved their victory and overall, deserved to win the Cup. It's easy to see why they were favourites before the tournament began, with such a quality squad they were always going to be there or thereabouts.
