Yep. Spain won the World Cup for the first time. It's their first WC Final and they nailed it. Thanks to Andres Iniesta. The only scorer of the game.
Me? Not what I'm hoping for. I'm with the Oranje. It's their 3rd WC Finals but still ended in 2nd spot. And of course, for all the matches they have won in this WC campaign, why must they lose in the finals? Ok. I'm a fan in Malaysia is so devastated, I can't imagine their own fans and of course, the players themselves.
And yes, last night's game was full of yellow cards and a red card for the Dutch player. I'd say the ref was a bit "generous" on giving out the cards. Not like the ref in Holland-Uruguay match. He was calmer and relaxed. But what ever it is, the damage has been done. Although Arjen Robben got 2 opportunities in scoring goals for the Dutch, luck wasn't at his side this time around.
And the top scorers, David Villa and Wesley Sneijder didn't stand out in the match. Well guarded by both teams I guess.
Anyway, hope that Brazil 2014 will be a better chance for the Oranje.
