    Yeah, a lot of the Dutch will be sad, but to be honest the way the Dutch players played was terrible.
    Tripping the Spanish at every opportunity.
    Spain deserved it as well.

    And if you did ingest it's psychic powers that would be so cool!

    Heh, the Dutch didn't play as bad as England did, that WAS appaling, I've seen a game of bowles played with more enthusiasm. Octopus is actually REALLY delicious, I'm surprised it's not a much more common dish.

    Big, big congratz Spain!!
    You've earned this

    Spain has won completely rightfully, and I am glad they did. (This comes form a German ). The Holland team might consider shifting to rugby, their play style would fit wonderfully there. De Jong should leave ball sports all together, and be imprisoned for assault, or given to some martial arts group. Distasteful game.

    I am both surprised and disappointed at the lack of meme's. Usually about 100 have surfaced within 5 minutes of any major public event.

    Losing coz a player scored that should get a red card after an action that should've been disallowed coz of out of play, which on his turn should've never been there coz the dutch should have gotten a corner... and the rev against you... Sucks to lose like that

    Judging just based on this one scene, yeah, it maybe was a bit of a bad luck thing - but it's not that we hadn't plenty of these throughout the whole world cup. That's no excuse, but these things just have to be taken.
    But looking at the whole game, Spain really did a better job! At least they TRIED to play soccer in between all those fouls from the Netherlands. Sure, they're not free of those too, but that brutal rugby oranje calls soccer didn't even deserve to be in the finals in the first place. Change that to playing nice, fair and good, and my neighborly patriotism may kick in. You simply don't win finals by collecting yellow cards for almost every single player in the team, of which two actually were deep red (yeah, Spain had to take some really bad decisions too my friend).

    Considering that Netherlands should have ended the first half with two less players (Van Bommel and De Jong), you shouldn't be complaining to the ref...

    Fuck yeah, I'm from Spain and that's completely amazing! Xavi should win the Gold Ball this year.

    EDIT: I'm editing this post just to add a GIF. After the first match some english press blamed Casillas' girlfriend. She's a famous sports journalist here in Spain and she was covering the World cup for the TV. Here's the interview after the match

    Considering that the ref whistled against The Netherlands at LITERALLY every opportunity (don't even try to argue with me on that because I watched the whole thing with a hawk's eye ) I would say that the ref was biased, going as far as giving The Netherlands enough yellow cards to actually put them out of the game. Though I do wholeheartedly agree that Nigel de Jong should have had a red card I would say that Spain had his fair share of yellow and red cards that they didn't get. I don't give a shit about football but I hate it to see that a game gets molested by a biased ref who doesn't even try to be subtle at it. In other words, congratulations Spain. You earned it because you had a high chance of winning even if the ref was a different one.

    I guess it's easy to accuse the ref of being biased if you're biased enough yourself. (Fun fact: This was the ref responsible for giving a goal against Spain wrongfully in an earlier game - so much about bias.) Therefore I wouldn't give anything on such utters from any Spanish or Dutch person right now. Every single one card has been well earned. From both sides, but the ratio does reflect the severity of fouls faithfully, if not in favor of Holland, considering what they dared to do in some instances. And that is my unbiased opinion, I couldn't have cared less who had won this. But implying Holland has been treated unfair goes just too far.
