World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Joan Capdevila Misses Flick-On Chance From Corner Kick

Spain left back Joan Capdevila missed a ball at the far post on a corner kick, the defenders right foot swung late on a ball flicked from the near post by Carles Puyol, missing a chance at a goal guarded only by a Dutch player standing at the near post.

Xavi Hernandez delivered the corner on a line to the near post, with Puyol jumping over his mark to get a touch on to the far post.  Capdevila was unmarked and had a chance to get his right foot on the ball but missed the opportunity to put Spain ahead in the 48th minute.

The match remains scoreless in the 52nd minute
