Congratulations to Spain. It was a thoroughly deserved victory. I'm delighted that the team that stuck to their ideals won out in the end. Some of the Dutch challenges warranted red cards earlier, and I'm amazed Johnny Heitinga was the only one. De Jong's kick into Alonso's chest was horrific and warrants a lengthy ban. But Holland could have finished the match literally with the goalkeeper, Van Persie, Robben, and Sneijder.

The Dutch seemed to have a pre-conceived idea that they couldn't match Spain playing football. Yet with players like those mentioned above, they have real world class players. As a Dutch fan, I would have loved to see Holland get the ball down and play through Sneijder, who is one of the best passers in the game. Robben could have won the game in normal time, but it would have been an unfair result. Holland tried to intimidate Spain, and for long periods it worked. But Spain showed that by playing the game in the right way, bullies will lose in the end. It's a shame though, because had Holland adopted a more positive approach I feel this game could have been a classic. All the ingredients were there. Both teams have outstanding attacking players, and had the Dutch tried a diferent approach, Spain's defence could have been severely tested. The Dutch concentrated on how to stop the Spanish midfield, rather than attempting to put the Spanish defence under pressure with their wingers.

All being said it was a disappointing conclusion to the tournament. I was very disappointed with the Dutch. They can't say they didn't have the players that could compete. They do. The big difference between the sides was that Spain stuck to their principles, whereas Holland forgot theirs in an attempt to bully. It's a pity, because I truly believe that if the Dutch had got at the Spanish defence in a proper manner we could have had a much better spectacle. There were players on both sides that were capable of producing a fantastic open and exciting final. It was a pity then that Holland chose to play as they did.

So congratulations to Spain. They were my pre-tournament tip. But as Holland are my favourite team, I naturally wanted them to win. I will continue to support Holland, and maybe the next time they can show the real talent they possess. One victory that the Dutch had during the tournament was the fact that they didn't press the self destruct button this time. No fallings out, and they showed a unity that was absent in the past. If they play like they can, and keep this unity, the next time could be their opportunity.

I wanted Spain to win in the beginning, and I'm delighted they did. Holland didn't deserve it.

I wanted Germany to win so I would get €75.

Ah well. Congratulations to Spain. You work hard you earn it.
