WCup champ Spain honored with Zaragoza city square

BY foxsports • February 7, 2011

The city of Zaragoza has honored Spain's World Cup victory by dedicating a square to the national team.

Spanish football federation head Angel Villar was in attendance Monday as the ''Plaza La Roja'' square was inaugurated.

On local newspaper Heraldo's website, Zaragoza sports official Manu Blasco describes the move as ''a well-deserved tribute to the Spanish team.''

The Spain team has received a number of accolades since it's 1-0 win over the Netherlands in last summer's final in South Africa, including King Juan Carlos naming coach Vicente del Bosque a marquis last week.

Zaragoza has previously named city streets after movies and video games, such as Super Mario Brothers Avenue.
