A great first half, Spain starting brighter. On 5’ Stekelenburg saved a header from Sérgio Ramos; after 8’, Kuyt shot straight at Casillas. 11’, Ramos shot from a good position but his shot was blocked by Heitinga. 12’ David Villa shot into the side netting, from the corner.
18’ Sneijder free kick straight at Casillas. 29’ De Jong – disgusting foul against Alonso, the third horrific example of violent play by the Holland team. Disgusting display of soccer, lack of moral and extremely bad sportsmanship.
Second half: tactical football, Holland continuing to commit horrific fouls. 62’ Casillas blocked a Robben shot in front of goal with his legs. 70’ David Villa shot over, in front of Stekelenburg; 77’ Sérgio Ramos heads over from a corner.
Extra time. 95’, Cesc Fabregas, in front of Stekelenburg, shot blocked. 98’ Iniesta blocked by Bronckhorst; 102’ Navas hits the side-netting.
116’ GOAL, 1-0 to Spain Andres Iniesta. A great football team beat the worst type of fouling, disgusting violent exponent of kicking to break the legs of the opponents.
The Dutch soccer team will go down in the annals of sporting history as pigs. They did not deserve to win the world cup. Why? Because it was the team that committed the most fouls.
