Spain won Euro 2012 and became the first team to win consecutive European Championship, World Cup and European Championship again.
European Football Championship in Poland and Ukraine was signed with Spain in a position of power eternal. La Roja swept Italy in the finals in Kiev (4-0) and has retained the title of European champion won four years ago. Spanish pride was easily wrinkling in groups, quarters and semis of some specialists who hate La Roja with secret admiration, but the world was witnessing a expolozii tonight predictable quality, class and talent of the ibericilor. Spain is the new Queen of Europe and finally get through outstanding performance in football history to win the European title in 2008 and 2012 World title in 2010. All in a row, all following a football without cracks.
Italy was a worthy finalist of Euro 2012, but an easy opponent in front of the Spanish Armada. Spain was somewhat forced to win this trophy, the only national in the world who keep a clear identity, more or less accepted the football world. La Roja, a team that passes and attack, has something of great beauty of football teams, be it in Hungary in 1954, Brazil 1978 and 1982 and Holland 1974. But Spain is the only team in football history that is actually what he wants. He addressed the European Championship in the final result for explaining all that football belongs to the Iberian Peninsula millennium. With Xavi and Iniesta to establish the perfect game, opponents Spain are seen often unintentionally removed from the game and often can not even enter the game, attending only to its history. So was today Squadra Azurra who did had no chance against world and European champion. Overactive and lucid team which made Germany in the semi was taken without opposition on the field today flamenco rhythm.
With Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas on the bench among the owners. So he chose to start Vicente del Bosque Euro 2012 final against Italy’s Cesare Prandelli. That is exactly the type of formula to the tournament, the Catalan midfielder played the role of “false number 9″. The Italians have not proposed any surprise in the first eleven choosing a defense consists of four defenders, as Cesare Prandelli already announced before the game. But Italy bad start, with fear and refusing to respond as they did against Germany. Disoriented classics will again accuse passing game “boring” but will refuse to see that Spain has recovered most of the time between Pirlo ball into the opposing half, De Rossi and Montolivo. So was born the first goal of the match and false number 9, Cesc Fabregas deserves praise. Catalan impetuous broke through the Italian defense centered left and “El Chino” Silva scored with his head. Probably because they do not remember the last goal scored by this procedure but it is certainly the most important. Italy responded after 20 minutes to start the game, but hit the wall Iker Casillas. Formidable goal record holder in Spain occurred in front of De Rossi and Balotelli and Xavi stopped the Cassano before his second goal out of the hat. Jordi Alba infiltrate excellent extreme left, Xavi and he passes it feels perfect and White meets a mere formality: 2-0 for La Roja and apparently final played.
Shock suffered severely affects early Squadra. Italians bad start and Fabregas is almost half of the third goal. Left without Chiellini left (injured) Italians are easy prey and the only remaining goal is to win not only stop mechanism as Spanish. Only Di Natale got a chance to score against the course of the game, but Casillas comes great fabulous in a situation to one. Football from natural instinct and the Spaniards have perfect technique, but it will pay one hit. Fernando Torres and Mata reserves, the world champion players, Chelsea, stand out. First, “El Nino” is 3-0 then serves it with elegance Torres Juanin for an unbelievable Spain – Italy 4-0! Four goals in a European Championship final and it manages Spain charged the “invisible” Mario Balotelli who is threatening to make one of four times the goal of Casillas.
Italy deserves a bow but for this fantastic tournament. Prandelli has done wonders for a nation full of characters hit the criminal and drug charges just before the tournament. Yet, Italy deserved to get here and become European vice. A meticulous and ambitious team, sometimes spectacular that exploded in the semifinals but could do more in front of authentic Spanish football. So, Spain is the European champion again and get a trophy in history even when detractors gathered a mountain of counterarguments against ibericilor.
