Spain win the World Cup 2010

Share |

Andres Iniesta scored the most important goal of his life, and his country reached the glory for the first time in history. There's no doubt that this game will never be forgotten in Spain. Del Bosque's team defeated the Netherlands in the Final of South Africa 2010 and lifted the Cup.

Iker Casillas not only saved two dangerous attacks from Arjen Robben. He also kissed the Cup, and his girlfriend Sara Carbonero, who tried to get an interview with the goalkeeper after the game.

And even though it was not a beautiful match, the excitement and happiness of a whole nation are completely well-grounded. Spain was by far the best team of the tournament, and had the best players as well. They never gave up their style, even in the toughest moments.

A new era in football begins with this result. Spain is no longer a "king without a crown". They are now the best team in the World.

Germany proved to be a serious team with enough talent to beat Spain. But at the Durban Stadium, the Germans betrayed their style and assumed the game with an extremely defensive strategy. Spain was patient enough to attack and attack until the goal finally happened.

Barcelona's defender Carles Puyol netted a long pass by Xavi Hernandez and helped Spain make history. It is the first time that the "Red Fury" reach this stage and a unique opportunity to reach the glory of football. Now Casillas and his teammates will have to battle the Netherlands in the most important game of their lives.

The first semifinal played at the Green Point Stadium in Cape Town was a really good match and delivered some of the best goals in the tournament. Indeed, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst's superb opener scored in the first half is a perfect example of it. In the end, the Orange team defeated Uruguay 3-2 but things were really equilibrated until the very last minute.

After the first goal, Diego Forlán netted the equalizer for the South American team. In the second half, Wesley Sneijder (70') and Arjen Robben (73') scored the winning goals. But Tabarez' side would not give up for their dream, and scored their last goal thanks to Maxi Pereira.
