Spain’s World Cup campaign didn’t start off well, as the team lost its opening match to Switzerland.
But, it quickly recovered and in beating Holland in the final game at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg, Spain became the first team to win the World Cup having lost its opener.
Spain’s progress saw it struggle to break down teams who faced it with a defensive mindset and relied on a succession of 1-0 victories—that means it is the lowest-scoring world champions ever.
