The first World Cup in Africa appropriately presents something new: Spain or the Netherlands as a first-time champion. The Spaniards and Dutch will meet Sunday at Soccer City after winning tight semifinals. For the Spanish, it will cement the legacy of their "Golden Generation," believed to be their most talented group of players ever. For the Netherlands, it is the chance to upset the odds and claim a historic, underdog victory.
