The Blizzard: Netherlands 0-1 Spain, 2010

In today’s episode of Greatest Games (in association with The Blizzard), we return to the 2010 World Cup. The Independent’s Miguel Delaney was watching from the press box as his Spanish compatriots took on the Netherlands in the final in Johannesburg!


This would mark the first time a European nation won the tournament outside of the continent, as the two sides met in a World Cup match for the first time. Miguel, Marcus and Jonathan recount a pulsating game fraught with tension, littered with yellow cards and rounded off by a glorious goal from one of Europe’s very best—all in front of over 900 million people watching from all over the world.
