Spain became the first European country to win the World Cup in another continent following their landmark victory against the Netherlands (0-1).
…and Dear Hubby, the Spain fan in the house, owed me lunch and dinner big time due to this wondrous victory!
I remember the announcer saying that no team has won the World Cup after losing its opening game, pertaining to Spain who lost its initial outing to Ghana (I think?) …well, not this team baby! Though, the win was obviously hard-fought and well-deserved, with Netherlands giving their best and their all. At the end of the day, the team who won the Cup was the one which was “more hungry for it”. Spain joins Brazil (five-time winner), Italy (four), Germany (three), Uruguay (two), Argentina (two), England and France as world champions and they are only the third side to hold the European Championship at the same time
More than the fact the Spain, noted for being a great team without a World Cup victory, has finally won its place among football legends–but what also sparked my interest at the ungodly hour of 2AM are the number of cute guys playing on BOTH teams! My hands down favorite of course is Spain’s Xavi Hernandez (8) which reminded me of a young Robert Downey Jr.
Of course, my favorite guys from the Samurai Blue (JPN)
I can’t wait for the next World Cup….See you in Brazil in 2014!
