Spanish fans rejoice in Sydney

Spanish football fans in Sydney have burst into tears of joy after their team snatched the World Cup 2010 from The Netherlands.

At the Spanish Club on Sydney's Liverpool Street, hundreds of supporters wearing red and yellow screamed with ecstasy as their team scored the only goal of the game.

"It is unreal, we are European champions, world champions, the sky is the limit," shouted Albert from Maroubra.

The floor of the Spanish Club shook as fans jumped up and down screaming "Espana, Espana, Espana".

Isabelle from Blacktown, who has Spanish heritage, said she burst into tears when Spain scored.

"It's an awesome feeling, we've been waiting for this for years and we've finally done it," she told AAP on Monday morning.

Spain has won the World Cup for the first time, with Andres Iniesta netting a goal in extra time to see off The Netherlands 1-0 in Johannesburg.

Spain are reigning European champions, but have had a relatively poor record in recent World Cups.
