Euro 2008

Spain European champions!

Spain 1 - Germany 0

Spain are European champions! A single goal from Fernando Torres with just over half an hour on the clock was enough to give "la selección" their first European title since 1964! Luis Aragonés's side were on top for most of the game, and apart from a few minutes at the start of both halves Germany hardly troubled Casillas. Lehmann had to keep out a deflection from Metzelder and Torres headed against the foot of the post before Xavi sent the Liverpool striker away for him to get between Lahm and Lehmann to clip the ball over the advancing keeper in to the net. And Sergio Ramos, Iniesta and Senna all came close to increasing the lead after the restart. In the end though Torres's strike was enough, and Spain have finally take the title that has eluded them for so long. Congratulations from all of us here at Soccer-Spain! (29.06.08)
