Pre-game: Netherlands vs Spain (11 Jul 2010)Match Details
Netherlands-Spain, Finals, Johannesburg – Soccer City Stadium, Sunday 11 July, 20.30 (local time)

Why Spain would win?

Spain are the European Champions and they have the best team in decades fielded today with David Villa, Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez playing in-synch, smooth and deadly on offense. Spain’s midfield would control the offense and these guys defense have been top notch giving only two goals throughout the tournament.

Why Netherlands would win?

If you have seen the Netherlands vs Brazil game, the dutchmen played strong and rough anchored on Arjen Robben, supported by Wesley Sneijder. These guys are so tough on the field that they could get their opponents losing control and focus. Arjen Robben’s ability to carry the play feeding Sneijder for a goal is the key for Netherlands.

Key Takeaway

Spain is looking for their first FIFA World Cup championships and their European Championship gives them confidence and experience towards winning the tournament. Iker Casillas‘ ability to stop goals, call out stone wall defenses on free kicks from opponents would win the game for this team.

Netherlands is going to be strong throughout the game and the combo of Arjen and Sneijder is going to make for some exciting results.

I am routing for Spain, and I would like these guys to win. The Spaniards get my vote.
