Spanish Soccer Stars shine light on Polio in World Cup


Felicitaciones a La Roja!

Last night, Spain beat Portugal in the second round of the World Cup in Cape Town – an exhilarating and exciting match, despite rain and cold.   What a great achievement for Spain as they progress to the quarter finals.

“The match was extremely intense,” Spain coach Vicente del Bosque said in the press conference. “In the second half, we were better than Portugal. We had greater depth in our play, and we controlled the game very well. “Spain moves on to the quarterfinals for the sixth time. They have only advanced past the quarters once, and have never won football’s most prestigious award.

National Team Coach Vicente del Bosque and La Furia Roja (the Red Fury) are polio ambassadors for Rotary International’s EndPolioNow campaign, which is aligned to the Kick Polio Out of Africa campaign. A football, signed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu was “kicked-off” from Cape Town on 23 February 2010, ahead of the world cup and traveled through 23 polio-affected countries in Africa, exiting through Alexandrina. On its Pan-African journey, the football was signed by heads of  state,  health ministers, footballers and other celebrities.

The KPOA coordinating team wish both Spain and Ghana every success as they progress to a nail-biting final.

    Spain showed a lot of flaws in defense. I think Argentina will get them.
