They think it's all over - It is now ...

Spain have deservedly become "Los Campeones del Mundo" the Champions of the World,  after 5 weeks of the World Cup competition and an extra-time goal from Andres Iniesta.   Alan Shearer - former England striker - has said "Not only were Spain easily the best team on the night, but they were also without question the best team in the entire World Cup".

Did you know ... 2 of the Spanish team are from the Canary Islands. David Jimenez Silva was born in Arguineguin on the island of Gran Canaria in 1986. Although he has been living off the island since the age of 14, he never misses an opportunity to return to Gran Canaria to see family and friends and helps promote the municipality of Mogan and Gran Canaria as a holiday destination.

The second player is Pedro Rodriguez who currently plays for Barcelona.  Pedro was born in Tenerife - Santa Cruz de Tenerife - in 1987 and played for a third division team until he signed for Barcelona in 2005.
