The ALTERNATIVE WORLD CUP FINAL
And now for something completely different. . .
Do you remember this infamous world-cup final?
But today (11 July) it's Netherlands v Spain. . .
Kick-off in Johannesburg at 1930hrs BST (that's 1830hrs GMT)
A special game with neither side ever having been world-cup winners.
Spain were the bookmakers' favourite even before the 2010 tournament began with eight straight wins in the qualification stage followed by six straight wins in South Africa. This is Spain's first appearance in a final at the FIFA World-Cup albeit Holland has been there (without winning) twice before.
It will be great to see either side deservedly take this trophy, a big day for both nations, but since Holland has had 2 prior disappointments I say this. . .
(even though Paul, the now famous psychic German octupus is predicting a win for Spain)
Come on ORANJE!!!
