World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Sergio Ramos Misses Open Header From Four Yards Out

Sergio Ramos missed over-the-crossbar with a header from four yards out in the 77th minute, failing to convert a corner kick that could have given Spain the lead.

The right back fit the Xavi Hernandez cross with the top of his head after the Netherlands failed to make him in the six yard box.

It was Ramos's second close-range chance of the match, with a fifth minute opportunity off a dead ball saved by Maarten Stekelenburg.

The match remains scoreless in the 81st minute.
