World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Final Dutch Substitution Sees Edson Braafheid Brought On For Captain Giovanni Van Bronckhorst

Giovanni van Bronckhorst's career ends in the 105th minute of the World Cup final, the left back being subbed-off by coach Bert van Marwijk.  Bayern Munich's Edson Braafheid replaced the captain, who will retire from soccer after today's match.

Rafael van der Vaart was given the captain's armband as van Bronckhorst went off.

The substitution was van Marwijk's final move of the match. 

Van Bronckhorst had recently looked vulnerable to Spanish right win Jesus Navas, who had nearly scored just minutes prior to the substitution.

The match has now gone into the second half of extra time still drawn 0-0.
