Spain emerge as worthy World Cup winners 2010 in South Africa. And Jesus was on the winning side.

The octopus got it right again and Spain were victorious over heavy and hard Holland.  It was an intriguing contest between two great footballing nations.  Spain emerged as worthy winners by the one well taken goal scored by Andres Iniesta.  The Dutch were not happy when Iniesta's strike hit the back of the net; they were complaining about an earlier refereeing decision. Howard Webb had a very difficult match to referee but he showed great authority and common sense.  He did well in trying circumstances. And so did both goalkeepers (Stekelenburg and Casillas) in making some world class saves. The end result pleased the plaudits and the pundits.  Spain were the better side and triumphed over the Dutch spoilers.  Jesus was on the winning side. Jesus Navas came on in the 60th minute. De Jong and Van Bommel might have seen red cards in another game for their "challenges". Some would argue that Dutch team were exceedingly lucky to have had only one player sent off (John Heitinga).  They fouled and frustrated the Spanish soccer maestros, but Iniesta's goal was a joy to behold.  Arriba Espana, champions of Europe and now the World.  They played the beautiful game as it should be played. Viva Football, the beautiful game.
