SPAIN lifts FIFA World Cup 2010!!!

~SPAIN lifts the FIFA World Cup 2010..becoming the World Champions for the first time ever!!! What a Victory for the UnderAchievers!! Finally their efforts payoff!! :) A World Cup final which is gonna be remembered for a long long time!! Iniesta scores in d 26th min of e.t to give Spain a 1-0 win over Netherlands!!~ :) Spain's striker David Villa (C-R) kisses the trophy as he celebrates with teammates during the award ceremony following their 2010 FIFA football World Cup match against the Netherlands on July 11, 2010 at Soccer City stadium in Soweto, suburban Johannesburg. Spain won the match 1-0. Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta's nerveless finish in extra time delivered a knockout blow to Netherlands in a bruising final to clinch a 1-0 win and their first World Cup triumph. With a shootout looming, the peerless Iniesta controlled a ball from substitute Cesc Fabregas four minutes from time and found the coolness that had eluded forwards on both sides to fire the ball past the helpless Maarten Stekelenburg. The Dutch tactic was clearly to frustrate the superior Spanish midfield with some brutal tackling. There were 13 yellow cards as well as a Red to Netherland's Johnny Heitinga, eight of the cautions for the Dutch and five for Spain, who got dragged into a street fight in front of a raucous crowd when they would have preferred a more gentlemanly contest!!
