Holland vs Spain – teams announced

| 11.07.2010

In a fitting climax to the 2010 World Cup, both Holland and Spain are able to name full-strength sides for the final which will determine an eighth champion.

Holland are 13/8 to lift the trophy, while Spain are 1/2.

Spain are unchanged from the team which passed Germany to death in the semi-final, with Fernando Torres remaining on the bench and Pedro starting up front with David Villa.

David Villa is gunning for the Golden Shoe and is 7/2 to score first, while Pedro is a 7/1 chance to open the scoring.

Holland are back to full strength after the return from suspension of holding midfielder Nigel De Jong and right-back Gregory Van der Wiel.

The pair should prove crucial if the Oranjes are to keep a clean sheet – a 9/4 possibility.

Wesley Sneijder is also looking to seize the top scorer title and is 8/1 to bag the first goal.

The confrimed starting line-ups are:

Holland:
Stekelenburg, Van Der Wiel, Heitinga, Mathijsen, Van Bronckhorst (Captain), Van Bommel, De Jong, Kuyt, Sneijder, Robben, Van Persie

Spain:
Casillas (Captain), Ramos, Capdevila, Pique, Puyol, Busquets, Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro, Villa

One final question: who out of Holland and Spain will be the eighth nation to lift the World Cup? It’s 6/4 to be Holland and 4/7 to be Spain. See the full World Cup final match betting market.
