Spain pipped Holland to clinch the World Cup with a goal on 116 minutes by midfielder Andres Iniesta.
With the match only four minutes away from a penalty shootout, substitute striker Fernando Torres sent in a cross from the left to Cesc Fabregas, who found Iniesta unmarked at the far post to stab the ball into the net.
With the victory Spain reasserted their dominance in world football after they also won the European Cup in 2008.
In a match characterised by tight defending, Holland also had their fair share of chances to break the deadlock during normal time.
