Is it irony or is it irony? The Dutch settled in the Cape on April 6th 1652 and establsihed their kindom in Cape Town. Now on July 11th the Dutch settles in Soccer City and establish their world wide dominion in soccer. Once again South Africa is the place where the Dutch makes their mark.
Soccer City South Africa is the only place where 90,000 people are sweating in winter; it is the sweat of absorbed performance anxiety (APA). Not even Shakira and eight year old Keeshenka Pillay could bring calm to their spirits. In fact they just made things worse with their gyration to the African beat. Men and women, this African thing is infectious. The African smile is not a put on; it is a permanent fixture. The people are all smiling or is it an anticipatory grimace? The beat is fun, electric, exciting, encouraging, inviting, joyous!

The moment has finally arrived. The stadium is packed. Everyone is on edge on their seat. The vuvuzelas go berserk. The crowd is delirious with delight. Black and white, national and foreigner, soccer expert and soccer novice are all crammed into Soccer City. The air is electrified with expectation. Everyone takes their seat and shouts quietly to the person seated next to them, “Do you think that our team will win?”
They came from near and far, they came from the east and the west, north and the south and some even came from out there. They sported the jersey of their team. They dressed in the national colors of their nation. They moved frequently to keep up with their team. They had to change hotels and catch a flight like they were just going downtown on a bus ride. Paying for a plane ride in dollars felt like paying for a matinee at the movies. When last indeed were things so cheap?
Well now the end is near. Finally the Netherlands appear on the field and then it is Spain. The crowd cheers and it feels like being crazy is the new normal. The vuvuzelas, the vuvuzelas is driving me nuts. The players cannot hear the whistle. They have to ask the crowd to be silent during the playing of the national anthem of Holland and Spain respectively.
And then the game begins at an electric pace. Spain is first to draw blood through a Andres Iniesta, Xavi and David Villa move. Luckily they fail to score. And then the Netherlands winning warriors wage war on Spain, relentlessly. Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder and Captain Giovanni van Bronckhorst put a Dutch plan into action and they have scored two goals in quick succession. It was as if the Spanish team took a momentary siesta. Sham, Spain never recovered.
The Netherlands are the new holders of the coveted FIFA Soccer World Cup.
