¡Viva España!
Monday, July 12, 2010

And people said Spain wouldn't win. Octopus aside, I've always had faith in the team. I hear so many people say that Spain shouldn't have won this game or that game or that they were lucky, but you know what? Luck has very little to do with it. Spain won that championship and deservedly so. Why shouldn't they win? Because they're not a good team? Because they were victorious over other teams? I think anyone saying that Spain does not have teamwork needs to rewatch all their games. The fluidity and the way that they seem to just complete each others' moves all speak towards teamwork. That last beautiful goal by Iniesta also attests to that. Now I'm not saying that Netherlands doesn't deserve to be in the finals because they do. They're a good team and they should be proud of themselves for making it very far. It just happens that the better team won in that game. The tactics that the Dutch were using harmed them so much more than helped them to the point that they could only play with ten men. De Jong was lucky he wasn't sent off the field with that kick to Alonso's chest even if it was unintentional. Poor Iniesta got knocked down repeatedly. I like to call that winning goal by Iniesta his revenge. You could tell that both teams wanted it very badly but even with constant pressure and exceptional playing from the Dutch defense, Spain eventually broke through with its calm, collected and steady style, never panicking and that is why Spain deserved to win this championship.

With that said, better luck next time Netherlands. You had a good run.

Now onwards to the Spanish players! It should be illegal for a team to be this good looking. Now I find the games exciting and the Spanish eyecandy to be the icing on the cake. Look at my soccer men, most from Spain!!

Gerard "Señor Hunk" Pique (what a gorgeous man)

David Villa (I'm saving money for his jersey)

Well that's pretty much all the men that I personally am huge fans of. But huge shout outs to Jesus Navas, Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas, Carlos Bocanegra and Benny Feilhaber!! Mm, Bocanegra :)

Goodbye World Cup. I will miss you until 2014. What do I do with my life now?!
