The 24-year-old hopes to be a lucky omen for La Roja.....Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal has announced that he will travel to South Africa to support Spain in the final of the World Cup.
La Furia Roja take on the Netherlands on Sunday and on his official website Nadal announced that he will be among the Spanish supporters in attendance.
Nadal recently won his second Wimbledon title. He picked up his first title at the All England Club two years ago in 2008, the same year that Spain won the European Championships.
The 24-year-old is an avid football fan and is said to be a Real Madrid supporter, although he hails from Majorca. He has many friends in the Spanish national team and reportedly kept in touch with some of them during the World Cup.
Spain supporters will hope that Nadal will be a lucky charm for la Roja, who have never won the World Cup in their storied history.
