World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Robin Van Persie, Carles Puyol Given Yellow Cards

Robin van Persie picked-up a yellow card in the match's 14th minute, sliding into Spain left back Joan Capdevila, van Persie's second dangerous challenge of the match.

The Dutch striker dragged his left foot across the back of Sergio Busquets' leg in the opening moments of the match, though he escaped an early caution.  With his second major infringement, van Persie went into the book.

Just over one minute later, Carles Puyol was given a yellow card after he took-out Arjen Robben, the Dutch right winger cutting-in from the left side to meet the sliding Spanish defender.

Now in the 19th minute, the match is still scoreless.
