España Gana

It certainly wasn’t a pretty game- if anything, today’s final exemplified the best and worst of this World Cup. In the end though, the Spanish squad prevailed just minutes before the end of extratime. Spain’s 1-0 win was a dramatic end to a dramatic tournament.

Congratulations to the Spanish on their first ever World Cup win! Uruguay’s Diego Forlan won the Golden Ball for the tournament’s best player and German forward Thomas Mueller won the Golden Boot for being the highest scorer, with 5 goals and 3 assists. The Golden Glover for best goalkeeper went to Spain’s very own captain, Iker Casillas.

Just under four years and counting until the 2014 FIFA World Cup from Brazil! Maybe the Women’s 2011 World Cup and the 2012 Summer Olympics can tide us over until then?

What did you guys think of this year’s World Cup? How will it be remembered?
