The 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa has come to a close with Spain beating the Netherlands 1-0 in the final match. And if you weren’t near a TV set yesterday here’s the winning goal by Andres Inista that gave Spain its very first World Cup win.
Almost every football pundit out there says that Spain were the worthy winners. And with the Netherlands rough house tactics they displayed during the game, not a lot of sports fans were impressed with their approach, giving the feeling that by Spain wining justice was served at Soccer City.
Yesterday near my house, people were over flowing in the streets, huddled outside of bars and cafes draped in flags with eyes glued to the big screens. After Spain’s victory, for hours, the streets were blocked, people cheering, cars honking and horns blowing. And this is Canada, I can only image with the party in Spain would have been like…..it bet it’s still going.
