Spain has done it!
After defeating the Netherlands 1-0 today, Spain has won the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Was it a clean game? Hell no. A finals-record 13 yellow cards were doled out. The Dutch even finished out the match with just 10 players.
The game-winning goal happened when Andres Iniesta broke free in the penalty area, taking a pass from Cesc Fabregas and putting a shot from 8 yards just beyond the reach of Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.
The Dutch, by the way, have now failed in the final for the third time.
