World Cup Final
Posted by Nancy on July 11, 2010
The World Cup Championship is now under way with the two finals teams, Spain and The Netherlands battling for the victory. The experts are giving Spain the thumbs up as a 4-1 favorite to win the match even though they have never before reached the finals and even though they lost a match to Switzerland earlier in the eliminations. No team that has won the World Cup has lost an earlier match before arriving at the finals. On a more positive note, Spain has clearly dominated Europe in the last several years in the world of soccer. In addition, the team has some stellar players, including David Villa who has scored five of the seven goals that Spain has accumulated since their loss to Switzerland. The seven goals tie for tournament lead with Netherlands Wesley Sneijder. The Netherlands have been to the finals three times in the past so they are no stranger to being one of the two last teams standing. If they hope to win again this year they will need some real help from teammates Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben.
Both teams are highly skilled and passionate about bringing the honor of victory to their respective countries.
