Spain Wins!

Spain wins the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa!

Spain 1 - 0 Netherlands (116' Iniesta)

Out great Father of the Nation, Nelson Mandela, garnered the biggest applause and cheers when he made his brief appearance at the World Cup Closing Ceremony much to the delight of everyone in the world. Thank you Madiba for making it possible to once again be reminded how proud we should be as South Africans.

Sadly, this Final was definitely not a classic. The Dutch players were far too dirty and far too aggressive to make it one. I've given up counting cards after 13 yellows and 1 red. That massive karate kick was just terrifying. Poor Iniesta though... Finally made it through the Dutch wall of terror after being fouled way too many times.

I'm really happy Spain won, and it was absolutely great to see that they've already had shirts made with their well-deserved first star in anticipation of their win tonight!
