UEFA EURO 2012 - Spain - Italy: Spain trounced Italy 4-0, Dominating Performance

Will Spain Make History?
Or will Italy knock the sandal out of the headline and restore credibility to Italian football?

Re: EURO 2012 - Spain - Italy: Who Will Win?

Although I have not warmed to posession football because of its enforced uniformity and undermining of traditional striker, I must say I respect Spain performance.

I was thinking Italy would snatch it today but that goal from Spain just reminded us they still have that bit of magic left in them.

Spain is giving a beatdown to Italy as if Rosol, who upset Nadal, was from Italy.

I didn't find England disappointing, our play was merely business as usual.

I certainly wouldn't say "besides Rooney"...Rooney has seldom reproduced his United form for England and certainly didn't here.

To be disappointing, one has to have high expectations in the first place...hence maybe the Dutch would be my pick.

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!

Re: UEFA EURO 2012 - Spain - Italy: Spain trounced Italy 4-0, Dominating Performanc

Now the debate starts?
Is this Spain the best team ever assembled?

How about Brzailian team of Pele?

They're very efficient, but not very exciting.

So are you saying this is the best England can do? Pretty low expectation I might say.

I'd say Holland. Losing finalist in the WC losing all three of their matches.

Amazing performance by Spain. Balotelli is such a dickhead.

Agreed. Dutifully efficient.
But since the winner always sets the trend, I am affriad other European teams will start copying this style and drive fans away in compeition of less prestige.
