World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Eljero Elia Subbed On For Dirk Kuyt

Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk's first substitution is an attacking one, with Eljero Elia being brought on for left wing Dirk Kuyt.

Elia is viewed as a pure attacking option, while Kuyt is looked upon as more of a two-way player.

The move, made in the 71st minute, was made with the match still scoreless.
