Spain claimed their first major title in 44 years after winning Euro 2008 with a well deserved victory over Germany, now the two will meet again in a World Cup semifinal showdown in Durban South Africa on Wednesday, as Vicente del Bosque’s men look to repeat France’s feat in 1998 and 2000 of simultaneously holding the European and World Cup titles.

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres was Spain’s goal hero in that match, striking after 33 minutes when he gracefully lifted Xavi’s pass over Germany keeper Jens Lehmann.

The story in South Africa this summer has been the spectacular play of Valencia forward, and leading contender for the 2010 Golden Boot Award, striker David Villa, whose 83rd minute goal against Paraguay in he quarterfinals gave La Roja a 1-0 win and a spot in Wednesday’s semifinal against Germany.

Villa’s tournament-leading fifth goal was put in from seven yards out, hitting both posts before crossing the line, giving the tournament favorites a pass over a Paraguay team who finished the tournament having gone its last 304 minutes without scoring a goal.

Likewise, the German scoring machine continued their dominance, steamrolling over Argentina 4-0 in the quarterfinals just a few hours before. It was the third match that Germany has netted four goals in a single game, while holding their opponents scoreless.

Diego Maradona’s side came into the match with high hopes of avenging their quarterfinal defeat in 2006, but fell behind just three minutes in when Thomas Muller flicked a header passed keeper Sergio Romero off a curling free kick from midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

It was Muller’s fourth, Germany’s 200th World Cup goal, their fastest in 32 years and the quickest so far at South Africa 2010.

The Germans weren’t finished and continued their forward pressure scoring their second of the match on Miroslave Klose’s first goal at the 68th minute, from an unselfish Lucas Podolski. This gave Argentina little option but to throw men forward, and with Diego Maradona’s side over-committed; Germany’s Arne Friedrich buried a close-range shot just six minutes later.

Klose would ice the match scoring his second of the contest from Mesut Ozil’s cross in the final minute of play.

This is Spain’s 12th World Cup appearance and while success has always eluded the team — its best-ever finish a fourth place in 1950—as they were eliminated in the Round of 16 by runner-up France in 2006.

For Germany they have reached a record seven World Cup final matches and will look to make it eight at the conclusion of Tuesday’s meeting. Like years past they have their sights set on lifting their fourth piece of hardware since the ‘Miracle of Berne’ – Germany’s first-ever world title in 1954. They followed winning again on home soil in 1974 and once more in Italy in 1990, while finishing third place in 2006.

Germany’s motivation will be too avenge its European champions loss, while certainly possessing the advantages of youth, speed and chemistry to get the job it done. Likewise, Spain will try to live up to its pre tournament expectations and ride the momentum of a pair of late game-winners from Villa.

They will need to be vigilant defensively and re-establish their typical ticktack passing that has all but disappeared thus far in the tournament.

Spain vs. Germany Free Pick

Unfortunately for La Roja, I expect their road to the finals to end as the German offensive blitzkrieg keeps them off-balance, making it difficult to respond especially if they fall behind.

Germany should dictate the pace from beginning to end in this one, winning by at least a two-goal margin.
