England in control as Spain are brushed aside

England 1 - 0 Spain (World Cup Final)

England battled to a deserved 1 - 0 (won after extra time) victory over Spain on a fine afternoon in their World Cup Final game at Soccer City.

Hargreaves had no trouble in scoring from the spot when Fàbregas conceded a penalty.

England maintained a high pass completion rate which allowed them to keep possession, and created a greater number of chances at goal.

Attendance: 87600

England skipped past France and Argentina through penalties to make the final of the World Cup. In a pretty spiteful affair with no real attacking flair, England gets up in extra time to win the cup!
