¡Campeones y Punto!

  1. Congratulations to the new World Champions. As a neutral the game was actually quite boring, but I can only imagine how exciting it was for the Spanish and Dutch fans.

    It must have been such a relief to have avoided the dreaded lottery of penalties. The only team in recent memory that I can recall Spain beating in penalties was us (Ireland) in 2002.

    I don’t think the Dutch record is much better, so maybe we would have had a hatful of missed penalties, and the winner by sudden death!!! Imagine the tension.

    Well done again.

    1. Hi Frank! Many thanks for dropping by and for the kind wishes! Yes, indeed, it does feel rather good! Even now, still savouring the adrenaline rush and the many emotions from being World Champions on something so relevant to our Spanish culture 😉 hehe

      Yes, I agree with you on how boring it was, but I guess that’s partly due because there was just one team attempting to play football whereas the other one was trying to play some other sport 😉

      I agree with you on the penalties, that would have been extenuating and rather nerve-wrecking and I just can’t think what it would have been like for the team who would have lost at them! I bet it wouldn’t have been pretty!

      Either way, really glad we eventually managed to make it when no-one gave us that credit after losing the first match and already looking forward to the next one! 😀

      Speak soon!

  2. Yes, I must agree with Frank on this that the game was quite boring, but congratulations for Spain team, they show that Spain remains Spain when is about Football, I am not a big fan myself, but I can see a few games from World Cup at the time it happens, while drinking with colleagues and friends some beers after work. Great post, and again CONGRATS SPAIN! I knew they will win, before it even started. 🙂

    1. Hi Viorel-Cosmin! Thanks for dropping by and for the comments! Appreciated the kind wishes! Yeah, we, too, wished the final would have been something else… Alas, it wasn’t. But rather happy we made it after all! hehe

      On to the next Euro Cup now though! 😀
