World Cup joy for Iniesta and Del Bosque.
Andres Iniesta, who scored the goal that won the 2010 World Cup for Spain, was full of joy after sealing his country’s first ever triumph in the competition.
“I can't quite believe this yet. I had the opportunity to score that goal that was so important for my team, and it's incredible," said Iniesta
"Spain deserved to win this World Cup. It's something we have to remember and enjoy, and should feel very proud of everyone in this squad. The manner in which it happened, we gave everything. To win the World Cup - there are no words to describe it.”And Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque was delighted after the victory in Johannesburg.
He said: "The dressing room is delighted, ecstatic. But Spain, the country, deserves this triumph, this World Cup.
"This goes beyond sport. We have to celebrate. All the people have been behind us in Spain, and we're delighted to reward them with this victory."Yet Bert Van Maarwijk, his Dutch counterpart, was downcast after the game.
“It's very disappointing. You want to win it, and we might have done. I think we performed really, really well to get this far,” he said.
"The team that scored the first goal was going to win that match. Those chances for Robben could have meant victory for us. But, unfortunately, we weren't so lucky.
