Jersey We’d like to Chase: Spain is going to their first ever World Cup, and what better regulation hottie than the Spanish antional team captain Iker Casillas. Casillas is a goalkeeper and plays for Real Madrid. Casillas may have not faced a lot of shots from Germany in the semifinals but we’d still like to jersey chase him ; )
Recap: In the semifinal game that would determine who would play the Netherlands in the World Cup Final, Spain beat Germany 1-0. The only goal of the game came in the 73rd minute from a header by Carles Puyol. Passing seemed to be Germany’s biggest challenge. Standout playmakers Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mesut Ozil only completed 76.5% and 78.0% passing respectively. This is Spain’s first World Cup Final, but the country has been the best team in Europe for the past 4-years. Since November 2006, Spain has only lost two games, which includes its group stage opener loss to Switzerland. Spain is just the fourth team to make it to the World Cup Final after losing its opening World Cup game. The World Cup Final will be on Sunday at 1:30ET as Spain faces the Netherlands.
