What a final. The two best teams in the tournament reached the final. Rather than it being a cagey final. It was free flowing with wonderful attacks, passes and defense.
All through the game Germany looked threatening but Spanish midfielder’s had a wonderful game and they completely dominated the Germans. The Spanish had superior attacking and passing skill.
Both the keepers were very good at keeping the game to 1:0. Spain could have easily had three or four goals if not for Lehmann. Similarly Germany’s set pieces were made ineffective due to some good goal keeping by Casillas.
It was a win for the Spanish skill and for the wonderful Game of Football. A final to remember and a fitting one for this wonderful Euro 2008.
