Spain Win Euro 2012

Spain saved their best for last and beat Italy 4-0 on Sunday. Spain controlled the entire match. David Silva and Jordi Alba scored the first half goals, and substitutes Fernando Torres and Juan Mata netted the explanation points.

Spain just won their third major championship in a row. This group is the best international soccer team ever. A thought I had which makes this run so amazing is the fierce rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona. Most players on Spain are employed by the top two Spanish teams and when they play in the El Clasico, the players don’t get along. When it is time for international duty, all Barcelona and Real Madrid players put their differences aside and focus on winning trophies. They have been successful the last three times, but expect a split in the group six week from now when the La Liga season begins.
