Skip to comments.Spain wins World Cup
Posted on 07/11/2010 2:07:36 PM PDT by navysealdad
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.
In the NFL 3-0 games are extremely rare.........1-0 games in soccer are par for the course.

When the thugs lose. I cheer.
I don’t know, I am not a fan but we were invited to a party today to watch the game with a group of Dutch friends (real from Holland Dutch). We declined but I know they are blubbering in their beer right now.
As much as I love the game, I do hate that part of it.
Heh... Have to say that you are right!
I thought I was the only one who was totally irritated by that ‘swarm of bees’. (Glad it wasn’t just my tv!)
WHAT AN ANNOYING, RELENTLESS NOISE!!!!
I agree w/all comments but also feel that the shooting is pathetic. So many kicks and head bumps went wide or over the goal. Just terrible.
The only goal came after the full 90 minute game time, and after the first 11 or 15 minute extra time and near the end of the second and last extra time. Just before the stupid penalty kicks would have decided it. The only good thing would be haircuts are getting shorter for soccer players (except a few clowns who did not get the memo.)
P.S. That photo of Obama proves he’s someone’s buttboy
“The German octopus goes 8 for 8.”
El Pulpo Paul strikes again!!!!
It was an ugly match, but the more deserving team won. The play was very rough and Howard Webb, the Referee did an outstanding job managing a very difficult match to officiate. All the yellow cards were deserved. A couple of missed calls on corners/goal kicks but all-in-all, a very well officiated match.
The players for the Netherlands played very roughly. The semi-final between Germany and Spain was a much better match and they were the two best teams. Both of those teams played very hard and with virtually no rough play. Probably one of the easiest matches to officiate during the entire World Cup.
It’s like watching paint dry. What a boring , one dimensionally European game.

Spain was the better team, no doubt. Webb did a good job, but I think the officials are spread too thin and miss too many important calls....
The red card was because the it was the player's second yellow card; and it was well-deserved. A second yellow card requires the red card also be shown and the player sent off. The ref had no other option.
IF Robben was held, it was minor and Robben was also pushing off. Good no-call.
It’s just that in the NFL a 3-0 game is called a 21-0 game. The NFL just engages in “score inflation.” it’s nothing but poor sportsmanship to complain about a game merely because you weren’t raised on it and because the US can’t field a team that can beat a team from the Third World.
“Too many fouls and too many dives.
But one very nice goal.”
The officials did an excellent job. As an example, they were correct on every offsides call.
Howard Webb also officiated the The European Cup Final the last time it was held, so FIFA had great confidence in him and he came through with an excellent match. Too bad the players didn’t play as well, for which I pretty much blame the Dutch. They were very rough.
Which reminded me a lot of Ghana.
The socialist nations in Europe that do not elect Muslims to run them?
Let’s see Geert Wilders versus Obama that AMERICANS elected.
Keep watching the NFL, NBA, MBL, NCAA and ESPN where they fawn and drool over Obama and spew his propaganda.
As far as freedoms - you will very soon have far fewer freedoms than most European countries. Thank idiots in America who watch TV and MCCain’s MCCain-Feingold.
Anyone else notice that in a country dominated by blacks, there was only one child of arguably a black race that walked into the stadium with the players and that girl looked like she was bi-racial? One of the kids looked to be Asian.
Same goes for the women who carried in the medals for the players in the awards ceremony. Just one of the eleven or so ladies was not caucasian; and she was also bi-racial.
Does FIFA select this participants; or does the host nation?
Naff off then.
Not a great final, except for the ending.
Sure beats the: NFL, NBA, MBL and NCAA where they act as propaganda agents for Obama 24x7x365 along with ESPN. The NFL at Thanksgiving had fawning ads for Obama. Soccer is looking pretty damn good versus retards who drool over NCAA ball games.
yea. Why so much work for so little reward? It's downright unAmerican.
Soccer IS a socialist game. Yo play with both hands behind your back...and the officials usually decide the game.
Oh yeah... and it pays to pretend to be a victim.
I am not a fan of any sport where this statement is a negative.
This is a boring sport. Australian Rules Football. Now there's a real sport.
“...boring and will never be popular in US.”
Don’t be too sure of that after the amnesty for illegals becomes the law. It’s a very popular sport in Kenya, too.
Heh... Well, yea, but it is a decent sport...just not very interesting to us. Don’t really want to pull politics into this game though...
Yeah... I’m afraid people will put their faith on octopus, parrot, etc., and not on the Lord.
I agree. Rather than go to a video replay system they should just add two more linesmen which would cover all four quadrants of the field.
Most calls that are missed are due to the ref/linesman being blocked from view.
Who did He pick?
You didn’t really just say that. Right?
Exactly right. In American sports like baseball and football, the teams move methodically and logically toward a goal. In soccer, OTOH, players run around in circles for 90 minutes until a fluke play determines the game. What a perfect metaphor for socialism.
Must be photo-shopped! It gives him tooooo much credit! ;-)

The Dutch should have been playing a man down since the kick to the midsection of Pique in the first half. That should have been a straight red on Holland.
Didn’t Paul the octopus pick Spain???
If you take a closer look at the NFL, NBA, etc. you see "Los Suns" shirts being worn by an NBA team, owners (example Mark Cuban) being left-wing idealogues, baseball teams holding "African-American", "Dominican", even "gay" days, you have Stanley Cup winners parading the cup in a "gay-pride" parade, you have NFL owners denying Rush Limbaugh part ownership of a team, etc.
Even most sports announcers or sports reporters that report on the big three American sports are left-wing, if not outright radicals. Look at Keith Olbermann as an example.
Pretty good record.
Did you notice the Dutch coach immediately take off his silver medal after it was awarded? I thought that was pretty low class.
HaHa!! Good one! OK, when does the NFL season begin?
Great to see Spain win with real Spanish players....some of the other European countries (e.g. France) have bought into the “black athletes are superior” myth and field teams that don’t look European at all......the French/African team went home early....so much for superiority.
