Final - Espana vs Deutschland

Xavi, Guitar and Silva. Their goals put Spain through to the the finals of Euro 2008. Russia, with all the hype surrounding Hiddink and Arshavin, were simply outplayed by Spain. Or more appropriately, Arshavin didn't show up. He was anonymous throughout the game. Don't think he got more than 10 touches of the ball.

The injury to Villa might seemed to be a blessing in disguise. When Fabregas got on in place of Villa, he brought along much needed pace and intelligence in Spain's play. He had a hand in the last 2 goals. Nando wasn't his usual self yesterday. Any other day in Liverpool shirt he would have bagged himself 2 hattricks. Maybe its the storm....hmmm....

Good news for Sapnish defense. Puyol was at his usual best. An epitome of modern sweeper. After being slated during the the group stages, Sergio Ramos is getting better and better. He is part of the reason why Arshavin didn't got a sniff of the goal.

Anyhow, being forced to do something that I don't really want to do tomorrow. Have yet to decide whether to go ahead. Keep u guys posted tomorrow.....
