Spain successfully
defended their European Championship crown on Sunday as they saw off
Italy 4-0 to pick up a record-breaking third consecutive international

David Silva rounded off a brilliantly incisive move to edge them
in front and the buccaneering Jordi Alba added a second before
Fernando Torres, four years on from netting the winner
against Germany at Euro 2008, stepped off the bench to grab Spain's
third, before putting their fourth on a plate for Chelsea team-mate and
fellow substitute Juan Mata.
It took just 14 minutes for a Spain side that had been accused of being boring heading into the game to break the deadlock.
Iniesta fed a brilliant pass into Cesc Fabregas and, after wriggling
away from Giorgio Chiellini, he cut the ball back onto the head of Silva
to nod into an unguarded net.
Spain were back to their
free-flowing best and doubled their lead four minutes before the
interval when Xavi was allowed to drift forward and feed the ball into
the path of Alba, who made no mistake as he calmly slotted past
Gianluigi Buffon.
Italy were always going to struggle to keep the
score down once Thiago Motta was stretchered off and left them with 10
men, and Torres got his hands on the golden boot on 84 minutes when he
rolled into the bottom corner.
He then turned provider four
minutes later as he squared for Mata to plant the ball into an empty net
and put the seal on a productive night's work
Along with Torres getting the Goldern Boot ,Andres Iniesta has been named the player of the tournament at Euro 2012
after inspiring Spain to defend their title in Poland and Ukraine.
