Champions of Europe and now champions of the world, Spain captured football's Holy Grail for the first time with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands thanks to Andres Iniesta's 116th-minute strike at Soccer City.
The solitary goal came with penalties looming as substitute Cesc Fabregas played in Iniesta and the little midfielder drove emphatically across Maarten Stekelenburg and into the far corner. With this victory – their fourth successive single-goal win in South Africa – Spain became the eighth name on the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy and also the first European team to have triumphed on a different continent.

Football wins! Dream finals Holland vs Spain!
Styles of both sides makes this a classic championship matchup.
For one of the few times in its 80-year history, the World Cup has produced a final worthy of the sport itself.
The Dutch and the Spanish play soccer the way it was intended to be played — a passing game, a possession game, a game of the intellect and not simply a contest of physical skill, strength, speed and endurance.
It might be slower-paced than some would like, but it should be far more interesting to watch as it unfolds. Chess, not checkers, that's the difference.
