Englishman Howard Webb has been chosen to referee the World Cup final between Netherlands and Spain in Johannesburg on Sunday, Fifa has confirmed.

The 38-year-old Yorkshireman has had a good tournament so far, as have his assistants Michael Mullarkey and Darren Cann, who will join him in the final.

Webb is the first Englishman to referee the final since Jack Taylor in 1974.

He has refereed three World Cup matches in South Africa and has neither shown a red card nor awarded a penalty.

Webb's first match in charge was Spain's shock 1-0 defeat by Switzerland.

He was also in charge for Slovakia's 3-2 victory against Italy - which saw the defending champions knocked out of the tournament - and was praised for his handling of a dramatic finale to the match.

In the last-16 stage Webb refereed Brazil's 3-0 win over Chile, but he missed out on the quarter-finals and semi-finals.

Webb and his assistants Cann and Mullarkey have enjoyed a highly successful season, having already officiated the Champions League final in May, when Inter Milan beat Bayern Munich in Madrid.

And their performances have boosted English referees' standing around the world after the debacle in the 2006 World Cup when Graham Poll handed out three yellow cards to one player during the match between Australia and Croatia.

Netherlands 1-0 over Spain. The goal is either scored in the twenty minutes or the last five. Germany over Uruguay 3-1 in third place game.

True. :whistle:

This is going to be a lot more different than the last game, both teams like to have the ball. Spain should dominate though.

Heh, find it funny how people still think netherland is so much better then spain... it was exactly the same before germany game :) Thing is, there is _only_ one way to break spains game and this is with pressuring on their defenders when they have a ball... but you cant play that way whole 90+ minutes... usualy teams against barcelona manage for like 20-30min at best and then its whole same game as we are used to, spain passing and other team defending. Only one team managed to keep up with barcelona and destroying this passing game for whole 90min and that was estudiantes in last years world club finals... but then there where overtime and they lost :)

Sunday game can go like this: If Spain scores early, we can see lots of goals specialy in netherlands goal. If Netherlands scores early, Spain will put extra pressure and im sure they will score and we can see overtimes, only real chance Netherland have to win is to score first late in game (lets say around 60-70min) and then defend for the rest of the game... Generaly i think Spain have like 2.5:1 odds to win it, they have better teamwork, they are more paitent, they have slightly better defence, much better midfild and they are about the same on attack, but since spain have better midfild they wont see ball much and only solution will be counterattacks like for germany.
