I only saw Spain play three full games in UEFA 2008. The first was a rather frustrating affair as they edged past Italy in the quarter finals. The other night they beat Russia comprehensively in the semis and tonight in the final the 1-0 victory scoreline against Germany doesn’t tell the story of the Spanish domination of the game. They were worthy winners of the competition.
Motty didn’t even mention England or 1966 once, although there was a scary moment when Franz Beckenbauer’s name came up. And of course the goal was credited to Torres “of Liverpool”
Footnote: I note from the commentary tonight that tonight’s victory for Spain comes 44 years after their last trophy. As Motty might say – “Could this be an omen for England?”
