  THE TAPESCRIPT

This is the year Spain will finally win the World Cup. I think we have our best team ever. Did you see us in the qualifying round? We were unstoppable and played some brilliant football. We topped our group and won all ten games, scoring 28 goals. On top of that, we only let in five goals. This shows our defence and attack are amazing. So, I’m really looking forward to South Africa. I can’t wait to see our top stars in action, especially Torres and Villa up front. Torres must be the best striker in the world. He can do everything so well and he has amazing strength and speed. The best we’ve finished in past World Cups was fourth, but that was in 1950. Our fantastic players will change that in 2010. We will win playing wonderful football.
