España Takes the World Cup

This sentence sums up Spain's victory at the 2010 World Up:
  • Champions of Europe and now champions of the world, Spain captured football's Holy Grail for the first time with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands thanks to Andres Iniesta's 116th-minute strike at Soccer City. via FIFA
Ask a Latino in the USA if they are happy with the victory you might not get the answer you expected. Although "we" would have preferred a Central/South American team, I'm sure this is the closest we'll be getting until 2014 in Brazil. Nonetheless, congrats to Spain. They were ranked #1 in Europe and in the world so it was just appropriate for them to win. Would a Latino admit Spain to being the "motherland"? I guess it depends on who you ask.

Did anyone guess Spain taking it this year? And what about in 2014?
