World Cup winners arrive home in Spain for fiesta

By ALAN CLENDENNING (AP) 5 hours ago

MADRID Spain’s World Cup winning team arrived home from South Africa for a huge celebration Monday, including meetings with the Spanish king and prime minister and an open air bus ride through the city’s historic center. EDT).

Dozens of airport workers cheered from the runway as the plane, flying Spanish flags from cockpit windows, taxied to a stop while car horns could be heard honking in the distance.

A special slogan printed along the fuselage of the Iberia plane read, “Proud of our National Team. Champions.”

A roar of delight rose up as team captain and goalkeeper Iker Casillas stepped out from the plane and raised the World Cup.

The crowd then broke into chanting “Campeones, Campeones,” meaning “champions.”

The players, wearing the team jersey, walked from the plane to a waiting Spanish football federation bus watched on by dozens of journalists.

After resting at a hotel, they will be received by King Juan Carlos in the Royal Palace. Then they head to meet Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

Monday’s highlight is a 5 kilometer (3 mile) bus ride through Madrid and crowds wearing the Spanish flag’s bright red and yellow colors.

Several hundred thousand fans were expected to line the streets to celebrate Spain’s first World Cup title. Spain beat the Netherlands 1 0 on Sunday in extra time.

The victory appeared to inject a dose of unity in this fractious nation even in regions seeking more autonomy or outright independence. It was also a welcome break from economic gloom and soaring unemployment.

“It was as if this was unfinished business for Spain and so it’s been good for everyone,” said Soledad Gonzalez, 51, a security guard from Madrid. “I hope that, God willing, finally, the Spanish flag means being Spanish and not being a fascist, as was the case not so long ago,” she said.

“It’s very important, it helps us forget a lot of things, like the economic crisis, for example, or people’s domestic issues,” said photographer Javier Sanchez,42, from Madrid.

Some news reports saw the national team as an example to follow.

“It would be good if the collective enthusiasm for the team became a stimulus for Spanish society in the face of the current problems and even that it became the motive to demand that our country should resemble and work like this group of young men,” the ABC newspaper said.

There was no scoring in the first or second half of the Spain vs Netherlands final game, we had to wait until extra time to see them win. Fox News has the story:

Spain’s place among world football’s all time greatest teams was assured Sunday when Andres Iniesta scored with four minutes of extra time remaining to beat the Netherlands 1 0 and clinch his country’s first World Cup.

With the teams facing a penalty shootout after an often ill tempered game of few clear chances, Iniesta collected a sliding pass into the area from substitute Cesc Fabregas and smashed the ball across goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg and in at the far post. Iniesta fired home the winner when he was put through in the area by Cesc Fabregas. Keeper Maarten Stekelenburg dived to his right and got a hand to the ball he could not keep it out.

The defeat was heartbreaking for the Dutch, who were down to 10 men after John Heitinga was sent off in extra time. It was their third World Cup final loss after 1974 and 1978.

European champions Spain had looked the more assured early on in the clash at Soccer City as a nervous looking Dutch side ceded territory to their slick opponents.
