Andres Iniesta scored in the 116th minute to seal the victory for the Spaniards.

It was a frustratingly close game for both players and fans, with few chances throughout the match. With 14 yellow cards handed out, the game had a real intensity about it and chippy play by both sides.

We’ll await news on the worldwide audience numbers for the game; estimates are that this year’s Final will surpass the 715 million who watched the 2006 closer.

As I mentioned yesterday, it looks like Spain’s Fernando Torres will need to follow through on his promise to present Kasabian with a team autographed jersey as a thanks for the inspiration to their squad. Torres had said that the team pumped itself up for their World Cup matches by blasting Kasabian in the dressing room – especially “Club Foot.” Kasabian were reportedly watching the Final and cheering on Spain, but couldn’t catch the full match, as they headlined Scotland’s T In The Park festival last night.

Spain has earned bragging rights as World Champions for the next 4 years; here’s a song they can sing for some time…
