I am a soccer fan, I also watch tennis & basketball but only soccer gets to me. A couple of weeks ago Netherlands and Spain played in the world cup final. Originally, I did not know which team I really wanted to win, I always loved Netherlands (I loved Marc Overmars for those who remember they 1998 world cup my heart was broken when Netherlands lost against Croatia in the 3rd place match) and I always looked up to Spain as the best soccer team to not win the world cup and not ever be in a final. As the game progressed I found myself rooting for Spain, the Spanish team won my soccer heart. Looking at how they were able to defeat Netherland as a team inspired me to look at what lessons I can learn from them as software developer.
So what can I learn from the Spanish team's journey in this world cup ?
There is a lot that we can learn from soccer in life … looking forward to World Cup 2014 lessons :)
