Who are the Spaniards?

Let's look at the Spaniards who played today:

Iker Casillas (Real Madrid)
Carlos Marchena (Velancia)
Carles Puyol (Barcelona)
Andres Iniesta (Barcelona)
Xavi Hernandez (Barcelona)
Fernando Torres (Liverpool)
Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal)
Joan Capdevila (Villareal)
Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
Marcos Senna (Villareal)
David Silva (Valencia)
Santi Carzorla (Villareal)
Xabi Alonso (Liverpool)
Daniel Guiza (Mallorca)

It is simply amazing to see almost all of the players are playing the Spain. The two playing for Liverpool are playing under a Spanish Coach. The sole Arsenal's player also play very similar passing football.

This is not just a victory for the national team, but also a victory for La Liga, a victory for beautiful and entertaining football. We have seen anything like this for a long long time where the winning team represents no just the 23 players, but a whole range of ideas and style.
