In Kiev, Italy plays Spain for the championship. This is the last game of an amazing tournament with the Netherlands and Croatia being eliminated in the group stages.
My prediction: Italy will beat Spain and will win it all, to spite all the critics and show that the ball is round all the way to the bank.
Spain has clearly reinvented the beautiful game but Italy has redefined expectations of how the game should be played as opposed to how it is expected to be played.
Italia! Italia! Italia!
Bummer. Spain scored first in the first 15 minutes. Spain scored again. Double bummer. 2-0 at half time.
If Italy comes back in the second half that would be historical. If they do not then Spain would make history. No matter what, this is historical. Is t his a 'catch NOT 22'?
Oh well. Spain has just won the Euro 2012. They were the official favorites to win it all, after all. I am not official, so Spain's win is just fine by me.
In the end Spain beat Italy 4-0. Astonishing score for a European championship.
Arguably, after this win, Spain has become the best team in history.
