32 teams... Who will win the cup?
Congratulations to Spain, well deserved victory! Was a great contest, I suppose the dutch were way too impatient with a flurry of yellow cards!
Man tries to win Worldcup single handedly!
Ah, well done, Spain! Congratulations!
First of all, the best team won. @Krayker the dutch needed to make fouls now and again to not let Spain score, that's why the dutch had more cards.
@6 Nicely predicted.
Cris asked some weeks ago, 32 teams... Who will win the cup? SPAIN WINS THE CUP! We are the champions! Thanks Lennie, Thanks Dez, thank-you all!!!!!!! Well deserved!
You are a genius Fishmonk!
Thank you, Salva & congratulations to your whole nation - I can't imagine how it must feel...
Congratulations on the title!
We'll see you all in 2014, here in Brazil! :)
Congratulations to Spain! A title well deserved.
I thought the shot that made the goal was a well placed kick from a difficult position.
I know I will be following soccer for the next 4 years after watching this World Cup series. The teams and the players have my respect.
Congratulations Spain, Remember to keep the trophy well polished ready for England to lift in four years time!! Ha,Ha, :O)
what next, we have at least one other species that seems to be interested in football/ soccer - the psychic octopus :P
they should honor the little fella with a doctorate and name him Dr. Octopus!
@6/ fishmonk, fantastic prediction.
@173, yeah the game was marred with yellow cards. dint quite like the way it panned out.
regardless of vuvuzelas - the only sore point - S Africa did mighty well. the closing ceremony was wonderful, loved the colors.
take a bow Africa.
Well done Spain! Commiserations Netherlands but you did good to get so far! :D
I wonder how good that octopus is at predicting winning lottery numbers...
oooh Good one! Let's ask an octopus to predict the new numbers :D
Thanks everybody for your congratulations, especially to the dutch members.
People went crazy tonight in every city as you can imagine.
@180 OK, we'll do it.
It's a dream! not, it's real............Sure it's a dream.........No it's real!
We are the World Champions!
"It's a dream! not, it's real............Sure it's a dream.........No it's real!"
@185, you have at least 4 more years of that :)
Congrats to the Spanish team and all of out Spanish people out here. The best team won. Spain played a great tournament.
@ 182: For someone who's not interested in soccer at all ... you do post a lot! ;-)
It's over - that's all what counts for now. I was afraid the Germonsters would make it into the finals and everybody flips out in a sea of black-red-yellow.
(No need to tell that "some" germans have issues concerning patriotism...)
Thx Spain - official European and World Champion!
@188 Norbs, there has been no escaping it so I might as well join in the backslapping. Nice to see you back. :D
Thank-you all, appreciated! It's crazy over here, today is a celebration, its a wonderful new sensation, we did it, Spain rules the World of Football for one time, we are the CHAMPIONS!!!
