Van Marwijk also added to the criticism of English referee Howard Webb who dished out 14 yellow cards and dismissed Everton centre-back John Heitinga.
Webb was consistently berated by both sets of players as footballÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s biggest showcase frequently descended into violence.
But despite criticising Webb, van Warwijk also admitted some of his sideÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s challenges were Ã¢â‚¬ËœterribleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I don’t think the referee controlled the match well. But let me be clear about this: the best team won the match,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I’m trying to analyse the match as best as possible. But I read a few things today about how angry Spain were at the refereeing in the first match against Switzerland.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If you view the performance (of the referee) today, you’d almost think now that that first match had an influence on this game now.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It’s not our style. Let me put it this way, it’s not our style to commit horrible fouls. It’s not our kind of football.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It was a World Cup final and people were tense. Look at the rest of the tournament. I think both sides, also the Spaniards, committed terrible fouls.Ã¢â‚¬Â
