Spain Wins World Cup

I’m just breaking my own rules and interrupting my holidays to bring all you a breaking blog post! Definitely, the news is worth the effort. We are World Champions!!

Just as the famous Paul – the psychic octopus – predicted, Euro 2008 champions Spain, who conceded only two goals during the tournament, deserved their victory after gradually taking a grip on a tense and bad-tempered contest that produced 14 yellow cards with Johnny Heitinga sent off on 109 minutes after picking up a second yellow card.

It was from a through ball by the influential Fabregas that midfielder Iniesta struck making Spain the first team to win a World Cup after losing their opening game of the tournament.Spain also becomes the team to win World Cup having scored the fewest number of goals – finding the net eight times in their seven matches.

Andres Iniesta scores with four minutes left in extra time to give Spain their first World Cup with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands.

Former Spain coach Jose Antonio Camacho celebrates as Andres Iniesta scores the winning goal against Holland in the World Cup final. On the verge of a heart attack, poor thing!

… and my favourite bit after this unforgettable final…

soooooo romantic! It is actually making a clean sweep in most Spanish sports headlines!

    Absolutely agree with you. Our national team players form an excellent human group. All of them, including coach Vicente Del Bosque and all members of staff, are a good example for all people, mainly for the youngest generation. Our national team is the best exponent of fair play and elegant football. Spain deserved World Cup and won the final in spite of a British referee who had a regrettable performance. I don’t have any doubt, football was fair with our national team because our national team was fair and respectful with football as well. By the way, from my point of view, the spontaneous and natural reaction by Iker Casillas kissing his girlfriend and journalist Sara Carbonero was wonderfully great.
    See you.

    Hoooray Spain!
    Our national team players are so elegantly professional in their game, discreetly unassuming out of the field, atypically respectful to others and yes so naturally romantic they make us all proud.
    Well done boys!
