Fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the final World Cup soccer match. The game is destined to make history because it will be winning team's first World Cup title. Both teams are confident about victory in the final match.

Giovanni Van Bronckhorst, Netherlands Captain, said, "It will be very difficult to play against them, but we go into this game with a lot of confidence to win this game. I have played a lot of finals in my career and you don't play finals - you win them - what counts is winning the final. We believe in that, and we will take that belief onto the pitch tomorrow."

Xavi, Spain player, said, "These days, a lot of team's football is very similar. Several teams could have reached the final. Brazil went out because of small details. Football around the world is very even at the moment, very balanced. It's the minor details that can be decisive, and can mean reaching a final or not. If there is a change in football's world order I hope it's in favor of Spain. It's time for Spain to take its place at the top and I think this generation of players fully deserves that"
