its Spain vs Netherlands in the final... and yeah a really really tight match its gonna be! both teams got their own style of football and splendid wid top players who are in the the top clubs around the world... the Netherlands wid their total football and Spain wid their beautiful game.
Both nations have never won a World Cup, cooooool! but so much is at stake for Spain and the Netherlands this weekend. For the Dutch, it would erase roughly 40 years of underachievement and infighting. Add a World Cup to Spain's 2008 Euro title, and you can crown them the undisputed heavyweight champions of football ;)
- The 2010 World Cup Final in South Africa is the first one ever that hasn’t featured either Germany, Argentina, Italy, or Brazil in it. Brazil has won the Cup five times, Italy four times, Germany three, and Argentina twice.
- If Spain wins the Cup, but scores less than four goals, they will become the lowest-scoring team ever to win the trophy as they only have seven goals. Three teams have won the World Cup with only 11 goals. These were Italy in 1938, England in 1966, and Brazil in 1994.
- Spanish midfielder Xavi has created 25 goal scoring opportunities so far in this year’s event. The next player comes in with 17 chances created. He has also completed 509 of the 560 passes he’s attempted. Brazil’s Dunga is the only player to have completed more passes in a World Cup tournament since statistics started to be kept in 1966. He achieved his feat in 1994.
- Fernando Torres is yet to score! This is definitely gonna be the last chance for him to have his first goal in world cup.
the lineups for tonight's match :
Sergio Ramos Gerard Piqué Carles Puyol Joan Capdeville
Sergio Busquets Xabi Alonso
Andrés Iniesta Xavi Hernandez Pedro Rodriguez
Robin van Persie
Arjen Robben Wesley Sneijder Dirk Kuyt
Nigel de Jong Mark van Bommel
Giovanni v. Bronckhorst J. Heitinga J. Mathijsen Gregory van der Wiel
In spite of all the talent on the Dutch team, I’m thinking David Villa will lead Spain to glory by a score of Spain 2 Netherlands 1.
Conversely, David Villa and Wesley Sneijder are the contenders to win the Adidas's Golden Boot award. both have scored 5 goals and for tonite, never take your eyes off em cause they gonna bangs wid goals ;)
so who’s your pick to win the World Cup? Do not miss the match peeps
viva la espana <3
