Football fans cheering on Spain as well as Italy filled the Olympic Stadium in Kiev to overflowing as Euro Champions Spain came face to face to Italy in the Euro 2012 Final. Spanish fans showed full support for their team by wearing red and yellow, Spain’s team colors, and their support did not go wasted.
Spain set the mood for the game in the first half, landing two goals and giving Italy a run for its money. By the 14th minute, David Silva gave his team the first advantage, and just before the first half ended, Jordi Alba threw in a strike. And with just minutes left, Chelsea stars Juan Mata and Fernando Torres cinched the deal and provided a worthy end to a great start and a great game.
It was a major loss for the Italians, and it didn’t help that substitute Thiago Motta limped away within just a few minutes after coming out. This caused them to end the game with just 10 players instead of the full 11.
As the final whistle blew, the squad took to celebrating, but their fans beat them to it with their more than enthusiastic response to the 4-0 victory. Support poured out from the stands, especially since this victory meant that they were also making football history as the first team ever to win three major international titles consecutively. The first two victories were the 2011 Euro championship and the World Cup in South Africa.
