Viva Espana!

FIFA ranking world no.1, Spain trashed 2006 World cup champion, Italy 4-0! It was a relatively one sided game with Spain dominating most of the possession. By half time, Spain already had a 2 goal lead against Italy. Rubbing salt into the wound, Thiago Motta from Italy tore his hamstring in the 60 minute, leaving Italy down to 10 men. In chess, is like playing the world champion without a rook. Spain then bagged in another 2 goals bringing the score to 4nil and also making history for becoming the first European team to ever won three back-to-back international tournaments!

It was a great game and a well deserved victory for the Spanish. Viva Espana~
