Spain beats Russia 3-0 to reach final. They will meet Germany in the Final of the EURO 2008.
The match started, Spain quickly got into their stride, and appeared to have the slight edge but the match hasn’t really sparked into life as expected, the first half ended goalless. The torrential rain that has continued throughout the first period may have contributed to the lack of scoring chances, but it was also a result of both defences tightly marking the strikers on each side.
The second half started, and early Spain made the breakthrough exactly at the 50th minute with a goal scored by Xavi Hernandez. after that goal, Xavi Hernandez, Iniesta and Fabregas became more creative and Spain began to look more dangerous.
At the 73rd minute, Guiza who substituted for Torres scored a second goal for Spain. No more than 9 minutes later and exactly at the 82nd minute, Silva added a third goal for Spain to ensure his team’s qualification to the final against Germany. The game ended on the score of 3-0 for Spain.
Spain have not won a major trophy since they landed the European title in 1964, when it was only open to four teams.
