Spain are champions of the world after Andres Iniesta's goal deep into extra-time gave them victory over Netherlands in the World Cup final at Soccer City after a goalless first 105 minutes.
What A Shot From Iniesta....Simply unstoppable
And Why So , It was So powerfull that the keeper simply couldn't catch it properly P:S: I was with Holland today...But Spain Played better...btw I was dissapointed with Robben
karim: That was a pretty mundane, point-blank shot from Iniesta. It was unstoppable because of the pass, and the fact that the goalie had two targets at close range to defend.
Netherlands played badly and went in to damage the Spanish players
But you Can't say Spain that spain did not do the same thing ! Did you see how Iniesta Pushed Van bommel and how puyol deserved a red card for the tackle against robben
What Happened to the robben magic today ? It was like he gifted them the win. :(
I was also disappointed :( IMO sneijder played better
Yeah he played better than robben
I think the referee did a very very poor job. Why did FIFA assign him to the final? Very bad decision. The Netherlands should have received a corner after the free kick by Sneijder in extra time. Iniesta was offside too when the first pass was shot towards him. The second time he received the ball, he was not offside and scored the goal, but it was offside before that, so ref needed to blow the whistle.
I sincerely hope FIFA will introduce technology to assist refs, because if there's one thing that's clear after this World Cup, it's that refs make big mistakes and it can mess up the outcome of a match badly. Mexico and England anyone? And France did not deserve to be at this World Cup to begin with...
Name me one ref who had a GOOD World Cup. It's not like FIFA had an ample supply of refs who didn't screw the pooch.
wohoo..i was right in predicting 1-0! I don't care how it was scored, i just love the fact spain won!!
It had a decent ending but that was 100 minutes of maddeningly incompetent football. Two guys straight up whiffing point-blank crosses in front of goal? Iniesta running into the box TWICE with the ball and not even getting a shot off? Just awful. My friend and I were yelling "PULL THE TRIGGER, DAMMIT!" but Iniesta looked like he had gone and gotten his sphincter tightened before the match. The better team ended up winning, and I was happy that the Dutch weren't able to just shove their way into winning the Cup, but nobody should be calling this a good game by any stretch of the imagination.
better team won. holland were dreathful the game reminded me more of a american football match lots of fouls one of the worst finals ever
