If Spain produces the same sublime performance or take it 2 steps higher...Holland will be completely eclipsed in the coming Final.
They have so many players that you feel could produce a goal at any moment. That turned out to be true in the 73rd minute of the 2nd half when poor defending allowed Carlos Puyol ( Barcelona's captain ) to head in powerfully for the one and only goal.
Thomas Mueller who was suspended could have made a real difference.
On this performance Spain has to be the favourite to lift the trophy and the World Cup will have a new champion. But don't discount Wesley Sneider and company. They too are on the brink of making history for themselves.
Before that great Final will be the 3rd place playoff between Uruguay and now Germany.
