Oh, all right, well done. I was for the Dutch, but Spain deserved the win. The more so for their elegant play and the sense of unity it'll bring back home, no small consideration in a loose amalgam of Catalans, Basques, Galicians, Andalusians, etc., each region with its own language and parliament. Such an arrangement could be a formula for dissolution, Belgian-style, but the central idea of Spain has a greater hold on the collective imagination of its citizens than the idea of Belgium has on its: there's no "idea" of Belgium. And their soccer team is useless. So, anyway: Viva España, muchachos.
