David Villa 83rd Minute Goal sends Spain to Semifinals

David Villa’s goal in the 83rd minute was just enough to knock out Paraguay. Spain advances for the first time to the World Cup semifinals.

The road gets much tougher now against the hottest team in the tournament Germany. Looking forward to that match.

Both Spain and Paraguay missed a penalty opportunity each in a hard fought match.

Spain’s leading scorer David Villa capitalized on a rebound chance in the 83rd minute and blasted the winning goal in the net, via the post.

Paraguay had a good run in this World Cup. Spain is in to the semifinals.

Spain Knocks Out Portugal 1-0 in Defensive Battle

Portugal gave up 1 goal in their entire 4 games in World Cup 2010. That was one goal too many as Spain’s David Villa knocked arch-rival Portugal out of the Cup. 

Cristiano Ronaldo did not perform any magic. Ronaldo, Messi etc, great individual players are not scoring at all. Great teams are scoring  just fine.

Offense gets the glory. Defense wins the game.

Spain survives and lives to fight another day. They luck out playing Paraguay in the quarterfinals. My Lock is Uruguay over Ghana.  While world #1 Brazil battles Holland and Argentina is in a war with Germany who crushed England.

Those two quarterfinal matches would normally be worthy of a World Cup Final. And yes, my Brackets are still perfect in this extremely predictable World Cup. 8-0 in round of 16.

Espana First Game Upset Switzerland 1 Spain 0

Once again Espana [Spain] underachieves in a World Cup football match. No offense to Switzerland but come on, Spain have been touted as top 4 [semi-finalist] contenders in all the recent World Cups and never come close to threatening. Spain’s World Cup record doesn’t lie.

Ok, Espana probably advances but will eventually face the likes of Argentina or Germany [Deutschland] where they will probably be knocked out again.

World Cup history is not on Spain’s side. No team who has lost their first game in the World Cup has ever gone on to be Champion. Buena suerte.
