Spain victorious in Europe

Just quick post to wrap up Euro 2008. I'm really pleased Spain won it all yesterday. I felt they were fell deserved champions with quality contributions from all their players, entertaining football and the passion and pride for their country. I was a little disappointed with Fabragas' performance (especially after the semi final game), but it was good to see Torres finally make a big statement. I'm also a little bummed and embarassed to say I missed making my final pick in my ESPN fantasy pool - thanks to all that played. The final game was another example of a closely fought battle with lots of scoring chances, high quality touches and a good amount of drama that we've witnessed in many games throughout the tournament. Olé España.

It was a great game to watch - Torres was really pouring it on, both oon the goal he did score, and on other chances as well. Over all, I though the Spain side deserved to win, with excellent, crisp passing throughout the game.
