World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Jesus Navas Shot Deflected Just Wide

Right wing Jesus Navas, after being played the ball from the center of attack, as given room to get within 15 yards of goal in the right of the penalty area, eventually putting a deflected shot into the outside of the net in the 102nd minute.

Navas, a second half substitute, was given space by left back Giovanni van Bronckhorst, who stuck out a leg left to deflect the Navas attempt.  The deflection, however, looked for a moment like it would allow Navas to beat a right-diving Maarten Stekelenburg to the near post.  The ball, however, when two feet wide of the post, keeping the match scoreless.

The score remains 0-0 in the 106th minute.
