"Spain's First Soccer World Cup Win Unleashes All-Night Partying Back Home

By Alex Duff - Jul 11, 2010



Spaniards danced under a statue of 15th Century explorer Christopher Columbus and sang “Viva Espana!” in downtown Madrid last night in celebration of a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in the World Cup final.

Dressed in the red and yellow of the Spanish flag, thousands of people hugged, shrieked and set off fireworks on the city’s central avenue Paseo de la Castellana. Spain’s victory in Johannesburg ended 76 years of waiting for the country’s first world soccer championship.

“I’m not going to sleep tonight,” Inaki Sebastian, a 27- year-old accountant said, with tears in his eyes as he and his girlfriend watched on television through the window of a café as Spain captain Iker Casillas lifted the gold trophy. “This may not happen again for 40 years.” "
