Viva la España!
And it happened! Though I won’t be able to speak loud for a couple of days now because I lost my voice, it was a great victory and it was worth losing my voice. Spain did it! It defeated Germany 1-0 at Euro 2008, and won the cup for the first time within 44 years.
We must thank Fernando Torres for the game. It was he to score the only goal in 33rd minute and ensure the team wins the long-desired cup. In the 33rd minute Xavi eased a through-ball from Philipp Lahm, but the swift Torres first moved outside the left-back to score the ball into the far corner of the net. “Lahm was in a better position but for a moment he relaxed and I took advantage,” said the scorer.
Fernando Torres ended Spain’s four decades of failure and vowed: “Now I want to be the best player in the world.”
No offence, but the Spanish were the best at the tournament, really. Spain never permitted their opponents to assume the lead in any game. They won all six games in Austria and Switzerland.
Torres said later:
“My best moment of the tournament was to score the goal which won the final. I’m proud but I was doing my job. This has been a fantastic season for me. But I want to win more titles and be the most important player in Europe and the world. Like through the whole tournament we played a perfect game. The team that played the best football are champions. It’s good for football and for Spain.”
“Torres is a great player, he is great for Liverpool [the team Torres is playing for] and for us and he might get anywhere because he has extraordinary speed. We have composed a group, which plays well, touches the ball well and they are difficult to stop. This is a happy day for Spain.” said Aragones right after the victory.
The Spanish were better, even their opponents admit that. “Spain were excellent and had more chances than us. They deserve the victory,” said Germany coach Joachim Loew.
There were VIP quests to support their teams in Vienna. Spanish Prince Felipe, Enrique Iglesias supported The Spanish, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel was cheering her country’s teem up.
Though Germany didn’t get their seventh Euro cup, they still have a chance to shine. World Cup will probably let revenge on Spain. We’ll see. But so far, Viva la España!
