Guessing your gut call was the same as mine. There's some mad partying going on in some city centers right now. I, for one, have never seen Holland win against Brazil. Great feeling, great match.

I've watched a bit of Spain this tournament. They don't seem that good - like maybe they're on the level of Uruguay but a clear step below Brazil, Holland, and Germany.

Very different style of play: pass, move, pass, move... wait. Patient build up with the odd instant break. They can be devastating. Bit shit tonight though. Part of the reason they're not as good is they insist on playing a half-fit and short of form Torres. Pedro made a much better impact tonight.

Only bit of WC "action" I've seen so far this year was about 10-15 mins of the ESP-POR game earlier today... Must admit, it was kind of exciting... Started watching seconds before Spain's goalie saved the Portugal PK, with a Spain PK seconds later.... The goal was overturned due to encroachment and on the second attempt, there was another fantastic save... A missed penalty, a few divey looking manuevers and finally a pretty amazing goal off a goal-post rebound...

I feel these few minutes sum up the excitement of the entire tournament but now I have more time for better TV and movies :D

The Portugal panalty save was awesome, but the Paraguay penalty save was even better.

Don't think I've missed a match yet, only 4 games to go though, then we can get to pre-season europa league qualifiers starting end of July

Oh wow, never thought this would happen. Damn great match. Although I must say that Uruguay was way better than anyone anticipated. Last half hour was brilliant.

I thought Uruguay was mediocre-to-good overall, but used a great draw to their benefit. Of their two scores today, the first (while being a great shot by yours truly) was a clear keeper error and the second was in garbage time.

Uruguay's still the only team in the tournament to play France level. Of course, that was largely pre-implosion France.

I still can't believe it, but there it is.

Sunday we will have a new World Cup champion. And I'm very much looking forward to this final. Whoever wins, will deserve it. Netherlands has had wonderful games to make it here, and somehow, we have kept going, and we managed to have our best game of the whole tournament against the hottest team.

Good luck to us all!

I'm really happy about this final. Two of the great soccer nations who between them have produced shedloads of talent yet have never managed to win the cup. Also, neither of them is Germany, France or Argentina.

Can't agree more with you both. Now Spain will be very tough to beat for Holland, since they have shown some great football, and have been more consistent throughout entire games. Holland has been sloppy within games. I'm not sure if that type of football will be 'tolerated' by the Spaniards. I'm guessing we're going to see a great game come Sunday, and can really only say:

Whoever wins, we win!

Super glad there'll be a new first time champion this year.
Should be a great game. I am hoping Holland's sporadically desperate creativity will prove more effective against Spain's vine of machinations than did Germany's formal-wear strategy.

Spain had three defenders closing on the ball carrier time and time again yesterday, with no apparent open man for Germany to pass to. La Roja are clearly doing their film-studies during the off-days.

This has really nothing to do with anything, it just happens to be my favourite football-related thing ever in the history of the sport.

Every kick in it massively mattering to someone, presumably.

Time to settle scores. Scores like "one - nil" and "2 - all", that have happened in previous years.
