July 12, 2010 | 10:17 am


Spain captured its World Cup victory on Sunday, beating the Netherlands in overtime. To help his country celebrate, tenor Plácido Domingo flew to South Africa, where he watched the final match and participated in the post-victory festivities.

The photograph above shows Domingo, far right, with members of Spain's winning team. It was posted on Twitter by @JeissonCastillo and was re-tweeted by @LAOpera.

Domingo was born in Madrid in 1941, but spent much of his youth in Mexico. He is currently in the middle of a run of Verdi's "Simon Boccanegra" at London's Royal Opera.

And - more importantly - isn't that Nadal in the back left next to David Villa?

And -- most importantly -- isn't that Elizabeth Taylor in the middle?

A team of white fellows; no Latinos in sight.

yeah, it's Nadal.

can't believe they won. I mean they aren't all tall and imposing like many of the other teams but they sure can create opportunities.
looks like #14 was successfully revived by that Budweiser they're holding up. that kick in the chest was something else.
next time USA baby!
