The World Cup concluded Sunday afternoon in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Andres Iniesta scored with four minutes of extra time remaining Sunday to give Spain a deserved 1-0 win over the Netherlands and a first World Cup title. With the teams facing a penalty shootout in a game of few clear chances, Iniesta collected a sliding pass into the area from substitute Cesc Fabregas and smashed the ball across goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg and in at the far post. The goal ended an often ill-tempered match and made Spain only the third team to be world and European champion at the same time. (Fox News)
