SPAIN MEETS HOLLAND IN FINALS
SOCCER CITY - And then there were two....Spain and Holland! The Dutch have had a day to recover from their exciting victory over Uruguay, but Spain is still reeling after defeating Germany 1-0 on Wednesday night in Durban.

Holland cruised into the finals, but Spain's road started rough, but could be 90 minutes away from perfect.

The Orange (6-0) have outscored opponents 12-5 in this World Cup, including a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over #1 Brazil in the quarters and a the 3-2 win over Uruguay.

The Red Fury (5-1) lost their first game 1-0 to Switzerland, but won five straight to reach their first final. In their three knockout round games, Spain won all three by the same 1-0 score over Portugal, Paraguay and Germany.

Spain's David Villa and Holland's Wesley Sneijder both have a tournament-high five goals and will be battling for the Golden Boot (given to the World Cup's top scorer). Germany's Thomas Mueller and Miroslav Klose along with Uruguay's Diego Forlan all have four goals entering the consolation and title games.

The third-place game between Germany and Uruguay kicks off on Saturday at 2:30 (EST) at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium and will be broadcast on ABC.

On Sunday, either Spain or Holland will hoist the hardware. The championship final kicks off from Soccer City at 2:30 (EST) and will also be shown on ABC.

The one question remains: What city will be partying all night on Sunday - Amsterdam or Madrid?
