Spain Wins 1st World Cup

Spain beat the Netherlands 1-0 to claim their first World Cup title.   Andres Iniesta scored in the 116th minute to score the game’s only goal.   Fourteen yellow cards and a lack of goals made for a slow game.  I thought both nations deserved a Cup so I was happy either way.  Spain is now the 8th nation to have a Cup under their belt.  The Netherlands had also never won a Cup coming into the final game.  However, this was their 3rd Final appearance.

Congratulations to Spain, and great job to South Africa for putting on such a great tournament!
