After 30 days of great matches it's Spain that walks away with the coveted World Cup trophy.
The uneventful final was mind boggling for Dutch fans who watched the Orange Crush wander around the field chasing Spain for most of the match sans any of the crushing offense they had for all of the preceding matches of the entire tournament.
It was however, a very physical game with about 14 yellow cards and 1 red- the most ever given for a final game.
DIEGO FORLAN IS NAMED WORLD CUP's BEST PLAYER! He wins the FIFA Golden Ball. He had 5 goals and 3 assists. And we give his mother an unofficial "Golden Ovary". Way to go, Mrs. Forlan, you gave us a winner!
Diego's teammates celebrated by throwing him into the hotel swimming pool. Classic.
"It's as great as it is unexpected," Forlan said. "I never even imagined something like this, nor did I have my sights set on it. I'm enjoying it and I'm delighted but I'm very aware that it's the result of the spectacular tournament the team has had."
Spain's Goalkeeper Casillas was awarded the Golden Glove prize. He conceded just two goals. Wow.
AND NOT TO BE OUTDID: PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS FINISHES WORLD CUP WITH A 100% ACCURACY RATE. The German Cephlapod was correct in every match he predicted. He is now the second most popular thing in Spain and is beloved around the world. His handlers are retiring him from the spotlight and want him to back to entertaining the children that visit the aquarium. Way to go, Paul! You've done wonders for your kind. We hope now that people can respect the intelligence of ALL creatures.
