World Cup Final 2010


On the 11th July 2010 the day that Spain have been waiting for, the world cup final. Spain vs Holland. Well what could I say about Spain being in the final it was just a brilliant achievement. Anyway kick off was at 8:30pm so we invited my gradparents round their names were Chris and Dennis. We invited them three hours before the game so we could play some games for example cards. kick off was approaching as my dad which is also called John started the barbecue it smelt delicious. We then sat in the hall with everything at the table whilst the players were coming out. We got tucked in as the referee Howard Webb blew his whistle and the 2010 Fifa World Cup Final was underway. The first couple of minutes were great to watch as a free kick for Spain. Xavi as I call him one of the best  midfielders of the world stepped up to take the free kick. Then Sergio Ramos headered it,it was an outstanding save by Holland’s goalkeeper Stekelenburg. As the first half of this glorious fixture between Holland and Spain was almost ending their were some really good opportunities for both teams.  Fifteen minutes later the second half got underway as both teams had chances and also loads of yellow cards as there were 3 yellow cards 1 for Spain and 2 for Holland. The second half finished as the teams waited another five minutes so they could get extra time started. 5 minutes later the 1st half of extra time got underway as both teams had bright starts but Spain looked better and more comfortable on the ball than Hollland. There wasn’t alot in the 1st half of extra time so about 5 minutes after the 1st half of extra time got underway. Heitinga then got sent off . So five minutes left to go then it was penalties then suddenly Fernando Torres picked up the ball crossed it in, it hit of one of the defenders then Fabregas passed it then it fell to Iniesta goaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll! I couldn’t believe it I went mad. 4 minutes later the ref blew his whistle and Spain were champions we are the champions my friends and well keep on fighting till the end we are the champions . We will be back in Brasil in 2014 to defend our title. We will now put the star on our shirt and feel proud. WELL DONE SPAIN!

Futbol Carrasco news: 28/10/09
“Ramos’s team Peña los Compadres are still unbeaten and keep their position at the top of the league having beaten a hard-working El Palo team 5-3. The Marbella team showed great strength in the midfield with a star performance by John, although the goalie from El Palo Carlos Sosa did his best to keep the leaders from scoring. The final result was a home win, and proof that Compadres are serious contenders to be promoted to the Preferente League next season. Three teams are bunched behind them on the leader board, all keen to take the top spot from Ramos’s team, which are Málaga, Nueva Andalucía and Atlético Estación.”
