Spain vs Netherlands: 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals – The finals today at Soccer City Johannesburg will be a battle of many first times. First of which is that the Netherlands vs Spain match was a first ever in World Cup history. The two had never faced each other before in this worldwide event.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals will also produce a first ever champion from either Holland or Spain. Both of these teams had never been a World Cup Champion although Netherlands had twice the chance to became champions in 1974 and 1978.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals will also be the first finals to be held in Africa and in fact it is the first World Cup ever in Africa. Expect to see Soccer City to be full packed when the game begins at 14:30 EDT. FIFA officials are expecting more than 90,000 attendees in the 2010 FIFA World Cup final game.

Also, the 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals and the whole World Cup 2010 had the most number of game upsets. These upsets includes the demise of teams like France, Italy, USA, England, Brazil, Argentina and Germany. Plus let me add the disappointing and very upsetting lose of Ghana to Uruguay.

A lot of firsts and a lot of memories will surely be embedded in our minds as the 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals comes to a close today. Catch the final game on ESPN and NBS, as well as online via ESPN3.con, FIFA.com, Newzaroundus.com and an internet Netherlands vs Spain live stream.

Good luck to both teams on their 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals battle for the first!
