Spain crowned champions

Spain were this morning crowned European champions after beating Germany in the Euro 2008 final in Vienna through a Fernando Torres goal in the first half.

I think I should say Spain deserved to be champions after playing some brilliant football throughout the tournament. The Spanish team was a complete team from goalkeeper to the strikers and its not surprising to see that they only conceded three goals and more importantly none in the knockout stages.

Germany on the other hand did well to reach the final and their highlight was probably beating Portugal in the quarter-finals when many expected them to lose but their defence always looked suspect.

I thought Germany started the final well in the first ten minutes but then they fizzled out for the rest of the match although they had another good five minute spell in the second half.

After a few jitters I think Spain dominated the whole match and could easily have scored more than one goal.

Spain should now be looking to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa knowing that winning the World Cup is a strong possibility but a lot can happen in two years and so maybe its a little bit too early to say but I will be keen to see how they perform in the Confederation Cup next year.

I didn't do that well on TipsChallenge managing only 15 points and I think its because my favourite teams did not well.
