Tough game for the World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands. The Dutch were particularly aggressive with a ‘kung-foo’ style kick in the chest by one of their players that should have brought out a red card (automatic game ejection). As it was, their play eventually caught up with them and they lost in the last few minutes while playing a man down. Overall, it was a fun tournament to watch and I’ll miss the daily excitement. Too bad it only happens once every four years.
The Dutch and the Spaniards contended
As the World Cup tournament ended.
With yellow cards flying
And coaches decrying,
In the end it was Spain who ascended.
