World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Maarten Stekelenburg, Defense Deny David Villa, Keeps Match Scoreless

David Villa was given the strongest Spain chance of the second half, in possession of the ball three yards out at Maarten Stekelenburg's right post, but the Spain attacker's chopped right footed shot was blocked by a sliding Dutch defender, with Stekelenburg apparently in position to make a diving save to his left.

Though Spain continues to control possession, holding 62 percent for the match, the Spaniards have only recorded two shots on goal.
