Superior Spain are worthy Euro 2012 winners

Yesterday evening in Kiev, Spain won the final of the Euro 2012 Football championship match.  They beat Italy 4-0 and convincingly.  The beautiful game was played as it should be played by a Spanish team that showed outstanding skill, virtuosity and technical ability.  This team are arguably the greatest since the Brazil team which won the World Cup Final in 1970 (in Mexico when Italy were sounded trounced).  Some would say that they are the greatest squad ever.  Their midfield players are magnificent; at times they managed without a specialist striker.

 Yesterday Fernando Torres, the Spanish super sub and specialist striker, came on to score, make an impressive assist and ultimately win the golden boot award. 2012 has turned out to be a good year for him, although FT had confidence and form problems earlier in the year.

It was a feast of football and Spanish streets are enjoying a summer fiesta.  With the economy in poor shape and high levels of unemployment, such national celebrations will be truly welcome.
