Spain Tops Netherlands in Extra Time

Spain is the World Cup champion. The European champions scored a goal in extra time to beat the Netherlands 1-0 in the final, claiming their nation's 1st World Cup trophy.

It's the third time the Dutch have lost in the finale, leaving them still searching for their first World Cup crown.

It was a physical test of attrition that sometimes turned dirty. A finals-record 13 yellow cards were handed out and the Dutch finished with 10 men.

The Netherlands now has more victories in World Cup games without a title than any nation: 19. Spain held that dubious record with 24.
