What about predictions for the final? I think Holland will win 2-1 against Spain. And Germany did OK against Uruguay, but could have easily gone to extra time with Forlans free kick hitting the bar in the last few seconds.

I think Spain will win, however its far too close to call, the first goal will be crucial as whoever gets it will probably win the final, should be a good final though. Spain will have to make some important decisions, whether to play Torres, Pedro or Fabregas. Other than that they should be fine.

I'm tipping Spain 1 nil.

Good guess!

Not a good match. Dutch players were dirty, but their defence was solid. Spain were fast but just couldn't beat the Dutch defence.

The winning goal was actually offside, so it should have gone to penalties, which the Dutch would probably have won. And just before that goal, there should have been a corner given to Holland. But just before that, a Dutch player should have been sent off.

All things considered, this was a really difficult match for the (British) referee, and he was lucky to have make the good calls that he did. Given that Holland should have had maybe even 3 more players sent off, in the end, the better team won.

Seems that every team I was rooting for got shot. First was the United States, but we all know they suck. Then was Argentina, but they got owned by Germany. Last, I rooted for the Netherlands to win this game but they got shell shocked when Spain put one in on 'em.

Even though it was scoreless, it was an interesting game. Both teams had a lot of chances... thought it would've been more dramatic for a penalty kick shootout.

Also can tell that Dutch ESPN World Cup analyst Ruud Gullit must've been yelling when that goal went in for Spain.

It wasn't. The winning goal just wasn't offside, the commentators showed it clearly again and again. Wanted Holland to win though, and seemed like they would. Also, who's gonna get the golden boot? Since I was awake for as long as 3 am at night but didn't hear anything about it. :)

I noticed around 2-3 corners were not given to Holland. Casillas was a smart guy.

I dislike some pundits, they dislike Netherlands style of play but they know fine well if they played 'total football' they would have got torn apart. The Netherlands played well all things considering but should have had more people sent off from Netherlands, they did play a bit physical but you have to do that against Spain.

All in all it was a poor game (as are most finals) but the tournament as a whole I think the Netherlands punched above their weight and Spain probably deserved to win the tournament.
