David Beckham – Why I’d like to see Spain win
It promises to be a great game on Sunday, featuring two of the greatest footballing nations never to have won the World Cup. Spain and the Netherlands have been playing the most attractive football of all the teams in this World Cup, which bodes well ahead of the final.
The Netherlands has always been a great attacking team over the years with players like Cruyff and Van Basten. This current side is no different, with match winners like Robben, Van Persie, and Sneijder. This time round they have been very solid in defense, too, with every player working really hard for the team.
I expect the current European champions, Spain, to have plenty of possession. Xavi, Iniesta, and Alonso are so important to the midfield, and they retain possession and pick out passes with ease. I’ve also been impressed with their defense in this tournament, but they have quality all over the pitch. David Villa will want to not only win the World Cup but the Golden Boot as well.
I expect it to be close and hope for a few goals in this match. There promises to be lots of interesting duels all over the park, but I can’t wait to see Sneijder up against Xavi, two of the world’s best footballers.
It’s shaping up to be a great match, and it might be that little bit of luck that helps decide the eventual winner. I would like to see Spain win, as I have many happy memories from living there, and I know how important it would be for the country. I have many friends there who would love to bring the trophy home to Spain for the first time. My boys also asked for Spain shirts to watch the final in, so I know who they will be supporting.
For many years, they have underperformed in World Cups, considering their level of talent, but this team has the look of a winner.
