Spain Defeats Netherlands to Win World Cup Updated: 2010-07-12 00:00:00 KST

In South Africa, another World Cup has now come and gone.
Spain defeated the Netherlands 1-nil at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg to take home the championship trophy for the first time in the nation's history.
Spain and Holland went toe to toe for the full 90 minutes, but deep into extra time Spanish midfielder Andres Iniesta scored in the 116th minute to put his side ahead.
And it was a bad omen for the Dutch right before the winning goal when defender John Heitinga was shown the red card and sent off in the 109th minute.
The match was a cliffhanger right up until the referee's final whistle.
And it puts the finishing touches on the successful hosting of the first-ever World Cup tournament on African soil.
