Valencia defender Carlos Marchena feels Spain have one hand on the World Cup.
Spain came to South Africa as one of the favourites, and despite not looking entirely convincing, have progressed steadily through to the final where they now come up against Holland.
“I believe the history of football owes us this one,” he said. “There have been great moments in our history where fortune did not end up on our side. We have been through several great disappointments over the years. We tried hard then, but without any luck. Perhaps this time we are to change those bitter moments. I hope Sunday is one of those beautiful moments, which are to be remembered in a good way for the rest of our lives.”
