Spain smash Italy 4-0 in Euro 2012 final

PanARMENIAN.Net - Spain confirmed their status as one of the greatest national teams in football history by overwhelming Italy 4-0 in Euro 2012 final in Kiev to retain their European crown.

Vicente del Bosque's team became the first side to successfully defend a European Championship title, as well as the first to win three consecutive major tournaments after their triumphs at Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup, AFP reports.

Accused in some quarters of having lost their ability to excite, Spain produced a thrilling demonstration of attacking football to confirm beyond doubt that this remains a golden age for Spanish football.

Andres Iniesta and Xavi were the architects of victory at the Olympic Stadium, playing key roles in goals by David Silva, Jordi Alba and Fernando Torres, who teed up fellow substitute Juan Mata for Spain's fourth.
