FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Spain became the first team to win the World Cup after losing their first match in the group stage. They also became the first European team to win on a continent other than Europe.

    • Man of the Match:
      Andrés Iniesta (Spain)

    • This is Spain first ever appearance in the World Cup Final.

      This is the Netherlands' third appearance in the World Cup Final. They lost 2-1 to Germany in Munich in 1974 and 3-1 in extra time to Argentina in Buenos Aires in 1978.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Netherlands Forward Dirk Kuyt: It's so frustrating, I'm totally gutted. We were so close to winning the World Cup, and we had chances too. But you've got to take your chances. That aside, Spain are a terrific team.

    • Netherlands Coach Bert van Marwijk: Obviously, we're devastated by the result. We were down to ten men but almost made it to penalties. You have to say the better team won, but losing the World Cup Final is hard to take. Spain created far more chances, but Arjen Robben twice came within inches of scoring for us. If he had, I think we'd have been world champions.

    • Spain Coach Vicente del Bosque: This is an unforgettable moment. We have to congratulate our rivals because they made it very difficult for us. The Final was all about attacking football and both sides tried to play the game the way it should be played. There's a great sense of happiness in the dressing room right now. It's hard to put it all into words and the way the players feel goes way beyond words.
