Congrats to Spain for winning their first World Cup ever!
But more importantly, congrats to Uruguay for being the fourth best team in the world! It's so amazing that they were able to get so far. Nobody believed they would even get out of the group stage. I am so proud of them!!
Better still, a HUGE CONGRATS to Diego Forlan of Uruguay for winning the coveted Adidas Golden Ball award: best player in the tournament!!!!! I sure hope this really puts Uruguay on the map and hope people don't disregard their skills just because they are such a small country. I can't wait for the Fifa World Cup 2014: Brasil!
*How did you find out you’d won?
"To be honest, after I was nominated I decided to wait and see what happened, especially as there were rumours that I might win but nobody was revealing anything. Then I got a message from a friend in Buenos Aires which said 'Congratulations, you’ve won the Golden Ball’. Then my agent called me and confirmed it. I started getting more calls and suddenly all my squad-mates had charged into my room, and before I knew it they’d chucked me into the hotel swimming pool!"
