    Spain win, even though i thought Holland would win. My love of the German way of playing makes me very happy that the final will be between Spain and Germany.
    Well done the under dogs

    Yep, Nadal has won it all, Spanish football team winning the Euro 2008 and now we have the Spanish hockey team in the final. By the way, this win should be dedicated to the victims and their devastated families of Madrid plane crash.

    Spain did everything right in that game. The aussies didnt handle the press at all, although the 2nd aussie goal was a beauty with the passing and team work on display. The difference I felt was inside the circle, the spanish were prepared to take on the defence and show some individual brilliance, whereas the aussies were more inclined to still play thier passing attacking game, which although worked a treat all tournament, it wasnt working last night.

    the second aussie goal is a masterpiece of german opera. But I'd say the diva singing was spanish defence veeeeeeeeeeery relaxed as in first goal.

    The kid who scored, besides the goal, is one of the revelations of the Olympics, A new star is born.

    The difference in this match is finally (at game 6!) Tubau woke up. If Tubau is fit, Spain is unbeatable. He have a quality very rare. He's able to drive a defence crazy in a very "normal" situation of play. He brings the chaos...
