SPAIN finally DID IT

Andres Iniesta dramatically fired Spain to World Cup glory for the first time in their history with the only goal of the game deep into extra-time in a 1-0 win over Netherlands at Soccer City.

With the match goalless after 90 minutes an additional period was needed to separate the two sides, with Barcelona midfielder Iniesta delivering the telling blow in the 116th minute to send spark of scenes of wild celebration in Johannesburg and back in Spain.

The match, played in front of 85,000 and watched by an estimated 700 million more on television around the world largely failed to live up to its billing and was littered by 12 yellow cards and one red, John Heitinga receiving his marching orders for the Dutch late on.
