Spain Thrash Italy to Win Euro 2012

They were called boring, people said they were tired and jaded after a grueling season, some even said they were not even close to playing their best football – Spain had nothing to say but to win the most coveted football prize in Europe to shut everybody up. Spain won the final 4-0 with goals from David Silva, Jordi Alba, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata.

The European Football Championship held in Ukraine and Poland came to a climax last Sunday with two much fancied teams in Italy and Spain battling for top honors. Spain came into the game as favorites, but Italy’s spirited win in the semi-finals against favorites Germany meant Spain were going to be stretched. As it turned out, it was the Italians who were stretched to the maximum – they couldn’t wait for the final whistle to put an end to their misery.

To be honest, it was a day of barren luck for the Italians who had to make a substitution halfway through the first half due to injury. They made two more substitutions early in the second half. When Thiago Motta was stretchered off the field in the 62nd minute, there was no way back for the Italians, having to play 30 minutes with 10 men against the marauding World Champions.
