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:

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

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.
