Former coach Luis Aragones says Spain is ready to win the World Cup since it can dominate the Netherlands in midfield.

Aragones says "whoever owns the midfield, owns the game" Sunday at Soccer City, and he expects the European champions to win that battle.

Aragones told Al-Jazeera that if Spain holds possession and plays at a high tempo "it's very possible they are going to beat the Netherlands."

Aragones believes the Euro 2008 triumph has made Spain "psychologically and physically" ready to win the World Cup. Aragones guided the team to that victory in Vienna before stepping down.
