Spain Defense Wins the Game shuts down Germany out

Spain has made it to their First World Cup Final. The Spain defense controlled the entire game and shut down the high powered Germany blitzkrieg offense.

Amazingly, Germany never threatened during the entire game.

Congratulations to Espana. They were the better side on that day of the semifinal. The reigning European Champions dismantled a quality Deutschland squad.

The Final should be a good one versus a talented Netherlands squad. Hope to see Holland push the ball up the field unlike Germany vs Spain.

The game winner was scored in the 73rd minute on a set play off a corner kick, by Carles Puyol.

After the game both the German coach and leading scorer Klose admitted that Spain was simply the better team.

Offense gets the Glory, Defense Wins the Game.

Netherlands Offense gets the Glory Holland Defense Wins the Game

Yes, Arjen “Rockin” Robben adds a potent weapon to the Netherlands offense. It was great seeing him in the lineup after returning from a hamstring injury and all glory goes to him for scoring the first goal. In my opinion, the Man of the Match was Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg and the Oranje Defense.

Holland’s goalkeeper Stekelenburg had many brilliant saves in shutting out Slovakia for 93 minutes and was the difference in the match. The England national team desperately needed someone of his quality in their net.

Wesley Sneijder scored the game winning goal in the 84th minute after some unselfish passing by the Netherlands. The Dutch have never won the World Cup losing to Germany in the 1974 finals and again in1978 losing in the finals to Argentina.

The Netherlands are now 4-0 in the 2010 World Cup with four times as many wins as Italy, France and England combined in South Africa, 2010. Now Holland will have to beat Brasil in the quarterfinals to keep the dream alive. A very tough assignment. Best of success.
