Spain were clearly dominating this game, they had a lot more chances than Germany, but Germany are still one of the best teams in the world.

Yea i was watching the game on TV, i was sad when we lost to Spain,but we got to third place and beat Uruguay in the third place match, just think about it we didn't lose that bad to Spain in this match, we lost by one goal that's not bad. I wanted to Get our 4th title to in South Africa but the world cup is in Brazil in 2014! We will definitely win in Brazil.!Let's go Germany in 2014!

"We played very well in every sense and my lads gave it everything. There were some great performances out there. We've still got one more match to play and let's see if we can stay comfortable on the ball. If we can keep doing that, it'll make things easier, although the Netherlands will be tough opponents for sure," Vincente del Bosque, Spain coach.
