Itís the Spanish Matadors
Fiesta in Spain, agony in Netherlands:
Spanish fans danced the night away in a joyous
fiesta after their first ever World Cup triumph Sunday, but silence
fell across the Netherlands as the country again tasted the
bitterness of defeat. A thunderous roar erupted from a sea of people
dressed in red and gold in Madrid as Spain ó perennial World Cup
underachievers ó lifted the trophy after a nailbiting 1-0 extra-time
win in South Africa.
