July 8, 2010 11:25 AM
The final is set for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and a first-time champion will be crowned. Spain meets the Netherlands for the title on Sunday in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Spaniards advanced to the final with a 1-0 win over Germany Wednesday. Spain scored the game’s lone goal in the 73rd minute. The Dutch punched their title game ticket with a 3-2 win over Uruguay on Tuesday. Spain is ranked second in the world while Holland is fourth. It’s the Spaniards’ first trip to the final while the Dutch have made the title game twice before. At Las Vegas sports books, Spain is a pretty solid favorite, listed at -180 at the Las Vegas Hilton. The third-place game between Uruguay and Germany is on Saturday in Port Elizabeth.
