Spain Wins World Cup, Beats Netherlands 1-0 in Extra Time

Spain takes home the trophy at the end of the World Cup final soccer match between the Netherlands and Spain at Soccer City on Sunday (July 11) in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Spain won the World Cup for the first time, 1-0, after extra time thanks to a goal by midfielder Andres Iniesta (pictured here). He struck with only four minutes remaining!

Andres is going to be celebrated for many years to come. Congrats, Spain!!!

FYI: Germany won third place during yesterday’s match.

    Congrats to Spain. As a resident of the Southeast US, I don’t really care about soccer and consider football – particularly college football – to be true football. Still, I watched the game today and have this to say: the goalkeeper for the Netherlands is HOT. Damn.

    @Carlota, this goal was offside at first as well.. but those referees didn’t flag so they could score… I’m soooooo pissed!

    So so freaking happy for Spain!!!!! :’) The writing on Iniesta’s vest was in tribute to their 26 year old captain who died from a heart attack last year whist training for the match <3 You could simply FEEL Spain’s heart and passion. Amazing.

    SPAIN is the best for the last couple of years ! that’s for sure , and they really deserve the cup ! ..

    Xavi & Iniesta , they are the best .

  • Leo Rolim

    Felicitaciones desde Brasil! Viva Espanha!!!

  • James

    SPAIN are a CREDIT to the game of FOOTBALL! Everyone knows the Netherlands should have gotten more than one red card for thar kick in Alonso’s chest. They spent the entire game playing with aggression knocking down Spain’s players, walling Iniesta in over and over again, knocking him down to the floor, tripping the Spanish players…..Spain used skill instead and that’s the beauty of the game. The right people won for sure! : ] Iniesta was kicked down so many times and he was the one who scored for them! What a trooper! Congrats to Spain!

  • mary

    congrats…. they deserved it (today) but before that they were SOOOOOO lucky to even play the semi….. and then they were really good…

    BUT Thomas Müller is the best scorer and the best youngster!!!! Yeah Party :)

  • VIVA ESPANHA!!!!!!!!!!

    Nigel De Jong kicks Xabi Alonso in the chest and gets a yellow card!:

  • Maarten

    USA, a country that doesn’t know shit about football and yet they’re all cheering for Spain….yey
    That’s what we call succes supporting…Spain shouldn’t even have been in the final because they won from Portugal with an offside goal!

  • Sarah

    Andres Iniesta is just adorable!!!!!! He played so damn well despite being kicked and kicked!!!!!! You are the man Iniesta!!!!!!!!! Congrats Spain!!!!!!

  • wtf lol

    Jared you should have chosen a photo from today! That photo is old!!!!!

  • ck_always

    Congratulations to Spain, but I found them very boring to watch. Not to degrade their talent, because they’re very good, there was just something about them. Not very exciting or fast-paced. Happy for Germany though, they’ll be a force to reckon with come later years.

  • no

    @Maarten: I’m not from America and I was rooting for Spain. I also love Portugal, England and Brasil.

  • Maarten

    @mary: Don”t bother Mary. I’m so with you, but if you have an honest opinion here that’s different from the major part, you’ll get downranked….

  • Hit Girl

    @Carlota @Daphne,
    Offside? Really? Check the rules, watch the replays and learn how to speak properly about a sport.
    Those dutch players have tarnished the legend of the 70′s ‘orange machine’. What a shameful and dirty spectacle! Congratulations Spain.

    Spain really did play fantastically and with finesse. The Dutch were trying to knock out as many Spaniards as possible with physical force lol! It was pretty brutal. Congrats Spain, you are a credit to your country and to the game. Kudos.
