I can't wait to watch this match and even though my teams are out I'm loving this game because it's two teams I like and either one gets to win for the first time.

I favor Spain in this match-up and to win today. Both teams have superior offenses- Spain's possession, ball control and passing are amazing and the Netherlands possess a great explosive offense that can hold onto the ball as well.

I think where Spain has the edge is defense and goal-keeping and that's why they will have the better shot to win today. Spain's only given up 1 goal compared to Holland's 5 in Cup play and Spain's time of possession severely limited opportunities for the opposing team.

I think Holland's best chance to pressure Spain early and often, much like Paraguay did, play aggressive and attack and not sit back allow to Spain to control the ball and tempo of play.

If Holland can play aggressive and disrupt the tempo and passing of Spain they can definitely win this game.


I'm honestly just rooting for a great game. I hope both teams play an excellent game and whoever wins I'll be happy to see them win their first Cup.


Enjoy the game boys and girls!

This ref stinks. The Netherlands should have gotten at least 2 red cards by now and the only red card they get was due to a dive by Iniesta. If there's one thing I hate then it's dives. Seriously, what is going on? They don't need this.

Edit: Wow, another dive by Iniesta. And another yellow card for the Netherlands.

Edit2: And now the guy who should have gotten 2 yellow cards for dives is the one to score. Wow.

Edit3: Thinking about it, he should have gotten a red card even before that for hitting van Bommel.

Especially sad since the ref broke this game in the first place.

On a MUCH brighter side... Thomas Müller is this world cup's top scorer.

I think the ref did an awesome job actually

I mean many many other refs had already destroyed the entire game with red cards. I agree that you could have shown 3 or 4 red cards tonight.. but for me he did an outstanding job with all the warnings, instead of destroying the entire game.

So it became one of the best finals ever!
All the dramatic and high tension was incredible!

Robben could have be the match winner twice.. instead it's Iniesta. I was so excited for the penalty shootout already.. and then this

And yea Mueller is Top Scorer WOOOOHHHH

Man, that's hell of a lot waiting.. Wow, I can't believe that I have to wait another 4 years..
They should've had a closing concert too though, it all ended so quick my mind still can't understand that it's all over.
