Just a heart breaking loss for Holland and the Oranje fans. Both teams had their chances and both sides had terrific goal keeping.
In the end it came down to bad calls by the english ref, who was just following orders and the script given him by FIFA for an Espana win.
This is worse than wrestling. Worse than the infamous mafia death threat to the French goalkeeper in 2006.
These scripted World Cup Finals really ruin the game by turning a beautiful game ugly. Hey, who said life was fair?
Ref 1 Spain 0 Holland 0 As Maradona says ” One Bad Play and You Go Home. ”
I guess somebody has to win, so congratulations Spain [Espana]. Your style of play, though not popular worldwide, won out.
All final four teams were championship material. And Brazil [Brasil] is clearly the team to beat at home in 2014, FIFA permitting.
