Ole, ole ole! Spain wins World Cup!

Andres Iniesta’s extra-time goal gives Spain their first World Cup title with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands, the fourth straight 1-0 win for Spain in the knockout round of World Cup 2010. The Dutch picked up eight yellows and defender Johnny Heitinga saw red from English referee Howard Webb in what was a hard-fought final that didn’t produce too many highlight moments. The much-maligned Fernando Torres came off the bench and helped set up Iniesta’s goal, making the reigning champions of Europe the eighth team to win the World Cup. The last country to hold both titles simultaneously was France in 1998 and 2000. Congratulations to La Furia Roja. Time to party on College Street and in Espana. We’ll be back with more later.
