Andres Iniesta is undeniably the most popular spaniard today. After kicking the ball passed the dutch goal keeper, Maarten Stekelenburg, he hoisted Spain into the select few countries which have won a football world cup.
The World Cup finals will be played by Spain and the Netherlands. Both teams have never won the cup. The Netherlands are unbeaten in the qualifying rounds in fact they are one of only two teams to have 100% wins. Brazil also have this record in 1970. Spain on the other hand has the lowest number of goals scored for any finals team. In order not to have this dubious record, if Spain wins they must score 4 goals against the Netherlands.
The experts and fans are divided. Most people have positive sentiments towards the Netherlands. Spain wins however in most media polls. In Germany, Paul the octopus oracle, picks Spain to win and Paul has picked all the winners in the last 6 games of this World Cup. If the octopus can do it I can too. I pick the Orange team.

It's a nine day festivity famous for scenes of amateurs and bystanders running infront of bulls as they make their way in fenced off sections of city streets.

You don't want the bulls to do a "Ferdinand" and stop to smell the flowers. The only way to do it is to get them excited.
