World Cup 2010: Reign in Spain

After 80 years of World Cup Soccer and only 7 winners, Spain has finally been added to the list of champions. Spain beat the Netherlands 1-0 with a goal only 4 minutes before a penalty shootout, and now they are World Cup champions.

New Kids on the Block

Here is the new list of World Cup Champions:

  • Brazil – 5
  • Italy – 4
  • Germany – 3
  • Argentina – 2
  • Uruguay – 2
  • France – 1
  • England – 1
  • Spain - 1

Golden Goal

Andres ActionAndres Action

Spanish midfielfer Andres Iniesta was found wide open with just the Dutch goalie Maarten Stekelenburg between him and the goal, and he beat him far post. How Andres was unmarked by a Dutch defender so late in a tie game is a complete mystery, but maybe that’s what happens after 116 minutes of soccer without any goals… complete mental breakdown.

Spain became the first team ever to win the World Cup after losing their very first game of the tournament. Switzerland beat them 1-0, and it looked as though Chile and Switzerland would advance and Spain would be eliminated in round 1. However with a little luck and only 8 total goals (the fewest ever by a World Cup Champion), Spain went to win the whole thing.

MVP for Muller

David Villa scored Spain 5 of the 8 Spain goals throughout the tournament, but Germany’s Thomas Muller wins the Golden Shoe award. Even though Germany didn’t make it to the Final, FIFA thinks Thomas was the MVP of the tournament. At least they gave David the Silver Shoe. Wesley Sneijder of the Netherlands got the bronze shoe, but I don’t think these players are really interested in the individual awards.

Perfect Paul

Paul the Octopus did it again by picking Spain to win the game. Paul's popularity for picking every winner in the German games has grown so much that the public pressed him to pick the winner of the Final. Sure enough, Paul was right again making him 100% right for all 8 games that he was asked who would win. That's one for each of his arms!

Ready for Rio

So the World Cup of Soccer[/kwlink] is now over and we all have to wait 4 more years for the tournament to resume in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Qualifying will start as early as next year, where over 200 countries around the World will start playing to get into one of the 32 spots at the [kwlink 24255]2014 tournament.
