I had to leave for church in the middle of the game and so missed the winning goal, but it sounds like it was a pretty dirty game. I started out pulling for the Netherlands, but after some pretty appalling behavior from the Holland side I'm glad Spain won in the end. It leaves a bitter taste on the tongue, that the top level teams resort to violence instead of relying on skill. I guess I'm a sports idealist. I think talent and dedication should win, not a willingness to do anything, legal or not, to secure a win. And just because everyone does it doesn't make it right. Disappointing and unsatisfying experience.
