SPAIN DID IT !!!!!!!!!!

The Eurocup 2008 was thrilling and exciting, We didnt think we could make it until the end. Great game and great players…

Fernando Torres scored in the 33rd minute and the Spanish team never backed down against such a formidable opponent.

In beating a team that makes a habit of appearing in championship finals, the Spanish team put to rest a reputation for underachieving. Always loaded with talented players, Spain has spent four decades falling short of expectations.

That all changed at these Euros, where we swept the first-round games, eliminated World Cup champion Italy in a penalty-kicks shootout in the quarterfinals, then routed Russia 3-0 in the semifinals.

Against the highly accomplished Germans, they weren't intimidated. They got the one goal they needed -- from a slumping striker, no less -- and set off chants of "ES-PANA," and "Ole, Ole Ole" at the final whistle.

Luis Aragonés and his triumphant players were cheered by huge crowds lined either side of their open-top bus route from Barajas airport to the Plaza de Colón. Here the party began in earnest, as the squad took to the stage set up for them and delighted the adoring masses by grabbing the microphone, singing and joking. The coach described his side, Spain's first European champions since 1964, as "the best team in the world".

An important part of the Eurocup was aswell the ¨against racism¨ slogan; Unite Against Racism.
The two semi-finals were taking place under the Unite Against Racism campaign organised by the Football Against Racism in Europe network with UEFA's backing, and with the support of the players' union. UEFA President Michel Platini has welcomed the activities. "The Unite Against Racism campaign serves to demonstrate our respect for diversity," Mr Platini said. "We're determined to ensure that major footballing events like the EURO are played in an environment of harmony and respect."
