Spain claims EURO 2012 title

Spain crushed Italy by 4 to 0 in the European championship final on July 1, and in doing so became the first nation to win three major titles in a row-following Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup.

David Silva's header, Jordi Alba's cool finish, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata's goal relay in the last 10 minutes ensured the reigning world and European champion to become the first team in football history to clinch three major titles in a row.

Italy, in the final for the first time in 12 years, again failed to claim a second European crown after their triumph in 1968.

Spain’s coach Vicente del Bosque also wrote history as the only second coach to win the World Cup and European championship.
