World Cup 2010: Netherlands vs. Spain Live Stream [UPDATED]
Spain and the Netherlands (Holland), two of the best teams never to have won the title, will meet tonight at Soccer City in Johannesburg for the final of the 2010 World Cup. And according to FIFA, football’s world governing body, a worldwide TV audience of more than 700 million is expected to watch the highly-anticipated encounter, which kicks-off at 20:30 CET this evening.
It has been a remarkably successful campaign for both teams in this tournament and it is quite difficult to predict who will be crowned champions given the amount of talented players on both sides. Bert van Marwijk’s men have been playing their style of ‘total football’, which has given them an unbeaten streak. Spain, on the other hand, started slow but peaked perfectly to eliminate the Germans in the semifinals. La Roja striker David Villa is one of the tournament’s top scorers, tied on five goals with Holland’s Wesley Sneijder, Uruguay’s Diego Forlan and Germany’s Thomas Mueller.
Spain’s starting lineup is still a puzzle, but a lot of pundits are saying that Liverpool hitman Fernando Torres will, once again, be dropped to the bench, with FC Barcelona’s Pedro set to retain his place after the semi-final win over Die Mannschaft.
Meanwhile, Dutch winger Arjen Robben insists his hamstring injury will not force him out of tonight’s match. The Bayern Munich star told reporters in South Africa that he is still bothered by the strain but he will try to do as much as possible.
