Spain's all night party

The crowd goes wild as Spain sweep into the World Cup final

I can't quite remember which American actor was recently ridiculed when he suggested that he was looking forward to seeing Manchester United and Milan in the World Cup, but perhaps he wasn't quite as stupid as you may think......

No less than 7 of Spain's starting 11 players in last night's semi-final hailed from FC Barcelona - so you might almost be forgiven for suggesting that Sunday's final will be between Holland and Barcelona!

Following the final whistle of the game Spain went completely wild - I have never seen so many Spanish flags..... ever. The sound of car horns and fireworks reverberated around our local town well into the early hours of the morning, so I can't even begin to imagine what might happen if they actually win the final on Sunday. It will be madness.

To finish on a slightly sad note, please spare a thought for Germany's psychic octopus Paul, who correctly predicted last night's result. The bad news is that he was apparently served up on a plate after last night's match - the good news is that he went down perfectly with the Albariño!
