With the scoreless match approaching toward a penalty shootout, and the Netherlands down to 10 men for the Dutch defender John Heitinga was ejected when he got his second yellow card in extra time, Andres Iniesta collected a pass from his teammate Cesc Fabregas to fire home from close range and break Dutch hearts four minutes from the final whistle. The goal gave Spain its first FIFA World Cup, 1-0 over the Netherlands.
Therefore, Spain joined West Germany and France as the only nations that simultaneously hold the world and European titles. West Germany followed the European title with the 1974 World Cup and France won the 1998 World Cup before winning the Euros two years later.
Moreover, it was the first time the European champions had reached a World Cup final and a bitter disappointment for the Netherlands who finished runners-up for the third time after previously losing the 1974 and 1978 finals.
The eighth new FIFA World Cup champion is crowned on Sunday at Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg with the witness of millions of football/soccer fans around the world as well as Queen Sofia of Spain, world tennis star Rafael Nadal and NBA superstar Pau Gasol.
Up to now, the countries that have won the FIFA World Cup since 1930 include Uruguay (1930 and 1950), Italy (1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006), Germany (1954, 1974 and 1990), Brazil (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002), England (1966), Argentina (1978 and 1986), France (1996) and Spain (2010).
It was also the first triumph by a European side outside their continent. Some precious pictures, shot in the finals and the award ceremony, are collected and made into a PowerPoint presentation.
