Spain Overcome Oranje Tantrum to Win World Cup

The World Cup concluded today, July 11 and Spain won 1 – 0 vs. the Netherlands.

Personally, it was hard to watch the first 90 minutes of play. Perhaps players from both teams should apply for the diving team in the summer Olympics given the amount of airtime players spent falling to the ground.

In Short

Spain played well and deserved the win. Spain committed fewer fouls and played in a manner that resembled professional football during the first 90 minutes. Composure and skill emerged in extra time and the team produced a goal in the dying minutes of the game.

The Dutch were determined to play a game filled with lackluster passing, dangerous tackles and a chip of entitlement on their shoulder. The Dutch accrued more than 10 yellow cards – shameful! I hope many fans, sports analysts, and FIFA officials assess Dutch play as unacceptable in the world of football.

I’m interested to see if FIFA changes much as a result of the 2010 World Cup.

How did you feel about the game?
