Spain beats Netherlands 1-0 to win the World Cup. Spain's Cesc Fabregas puts Iniesta through in the box and his low shot beats Netherlands goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg for the game's only goal.
To my eye Spain looked the better team throughout, so I’d say the better team won.
Heck of a game. If ever two teams deserved to win one game, this was it.
The German octopus goes 8 for 8.
“Spain beats Netherlands 1-0”
Well I for one was just all aquiver. Okay, maybe not.
Paul, the psychic octopus, is right again!
The Pus is the real story here.........
You’re right. The Netherlands played a very defensive and physical game. Spain showed a lot more skill IMHO. Seemed like every time I looked up at the screen there was a guy in an orange shirt pleading his case to the ref, drawing a yellow card...
Seems that German Octopus is running a far better prediction rate than Nostradamus.... =.=
spain wins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the oscar. when does real football start?
Soccer is excruciatingly boring and will never be popular in US. Slow moving and low scoring games adds insult to injury. More popular with liberal/socialist nations....
The officiating in the World Cup has been dreadful and embarassing. The bad call on the free kick, that should have lead to a corner kick for the Netherlands, lead directly to Spain’s goal.
Virtually all games in this Cup have had important goals awarded or taken away by bad calls. Until they institute instant replay or add 3 more referees on the field soccer will never be more than a minor sport in the US....
yawn, another soccer hating person. I like your twist though: like soccer and you’re a liberal.
I thought the officials favored Spain enough to decide the match. Robben was held and deserved a penalty shot; instead they gave him a yellow card. The red card against Netherlands that decided the game was not warranted. The Spanish did play well, but the officiating was decisive.
