The Games Spain Played at The 2010 World FIFA CUP -- The Road to Being the Champion

The road to being the champion is not that hard for the Spain squad, actually, they lost to Switzerland very early, but the Spain squad is included in the prediction on who is going to win if you judge by the different blog sites and soccer enthusiasts forum in the Internet from all over the world.

They had it coming after Brazil, then Germany lost (the two biggest lost and setbacks in the 2010 World Cup

David Villa, a forward form the Spain squad is the top scorer. Spain scored 28 goals. The Spain squad played seven matches, got 8 yellow cards but 0 red card, fair enough. They won against Honduras, Chile, Portugal, Paraguay and Germany but lost to Switzerland. Finally they won against the Netherlands team in the overtime of the Finals.

It was not easy to beat the Netherlands team, in fact the overtime said it all, and the yellow card which the Netherlands team got is an evidence of how the two teams excelled and competed well. Many comments abound saying, the Netherlands prevented the Spain to score more and didn't concentrate on winning, just defending. The Netherlands are also a team that works hard to get to the finals and they deserve a well wound of applause. They all have the making of World Cup Champs, if the Netherlands team won, it could have been their first as well.


The world again awaits for the World FIFA Cup 2014 in Brazil. Happy reading!
