Yesterday we travelled to Willesden Green to watch Spain defeat the Netherlands 1–0, with an extra time goal by Andrés Iniesta. This World Cup final was the first not to include any of the four most successful nations: Brazil, Italy, Germany and Argentina. I was a neutral and wasn't too bothered about the outcome, but as tonight also represented a birthday and our friend was supporting the Netherlands we were backing the Spaniards. Honest! The match wasn't strictly a football contest because there were glimpses of Mortal Kombat. My favourite was when De Jong ninja kicked Xabi Alonso, that was special although Zinedine Zidane headbutting Marco Materazzi is still the greatest! The birthday celebration was good fun, even with the disappointment that the Netherlands return home empty handed everyone remained in high spirits. During the night the iTunes festival was mentioned and we're hopefully going to attend a few performances. A limited number of tickets are available on the night so that needs to be exploited! We headed to Trafalgar Square afterwards, Spanish fans had gathered there to celebrate and we wanted to participate and savour the moment! If only it were an England victory that was being celebrated though!!!
