It was a horrible game. Painful to watch. Nothing but shin kicking and whining.
Holland knew that if they let Spain play it’s passing game they were done for. They went with the old “kick em in the knee if they start to make a play” strategy and the referee played along.
The ever calm and impartial Spanish commentator said on national television, ” If I see that (Dutch player) Robben in the street I’m going to punch him in the face!”
But in the end justice was served and Spain won the World Cup of Football. The commentator just about blew an artery.
It was 116 minutes of boredom and frustration before Iniesta finally put the world out of its misery. This was not entertaining sport. This was drudgery in cleats. It really needed more moments (and hair) like this:
I’d watch more football if this guy still played on the circuit.
And the honking and explosions continue…
