Spanish flagIt was expected that over 700 million people worldwide would tune in for last night’s World Cup Final, to see two teams fight for a title that neither had ever won before.

While approximately 300 people entered the competition, Spain’s victory means that there are now 50 people remaining who could win the iPad™. And the winner is….

The Winner:

As mentioned in the initial blog post about the competition multiple people would be expected to pick the winning country. Therefore we will use random.org as our tool for a lucky draw between the people who selected Spain, either via tagging themselves on the Spanish flag or leaving a comment below the Facebook photo as of the 30th June 2010.
