Euro 2008: Spain is victorious.
Yesterday, a goal from Fernando Torres at the 33rd minute was enough to give Spain a 1-0 victory over Germany.
Spain waited for this moment for 44 years. The country had not won a major international soccer tournament since their first conquest at the Euro in 1964. Now with the 2008 european title in the bag, their next objective is nothing less than a victory during the next World Cup.
The 2008 edition of the Euro was a success, especially if we compare the quality of the teams in this tournament versus the previous one. The level of the competition was excellent and some teams who went as far as the semifinals like Turkey and Russia offered great matches all tournament long.
On the other hand, some teams like France and Italy could be accused of a lack of creativity. The quality and talent contained in those two teams is obvious but the way that they decided to play in this competition was anything but satisfying.
Overall, the soccer fans had a great competition and now they are counting the days until the next World Cup.
