This was a great match and we have to admit it. It wasn't that Spain didn't "play well" but that Paraguay didn't let them do it. In my country there are some people who criticize Cardozo for missing the penalty, but it's luck that Casillas catched the ball and that the judge didnt give Paraguay another shot like he did with Spain. And also the fact that Villa was in the right place and moment. Paraguay did an excelent job and Spain knows it. I am proud and happy that we made it this far.
