“What a joy especially when you see how we won it. There aren’t the words to describe what I am feeling. After my goal, I thought about my family and all the people who I love. But the victory is the fruit of a lot of work,” an emotionalIniesta stated.
Spain coach Vincente del Bosque added: “Today is a reward for beautiful football. Everyone in the dressing room is ecstatic,” he said.
“Spain, the country, deserves this triumph. This goes beyond sport. We have to celebrate and are delighted to be able to offer this victory to all the people of Spain.”
The coach didn’t bad mouth the Nederlands team but instead stated, “I’m hear to speak about the beautiful things of football. Holland played a good game in an even, balanced match. Yes it was rough at times but that is part of football.”
