That got ugly at the end, like, Italy barely held on to their dignity (or not). Happy to see Spain take it though. They play a beautiful game.

uh?

you listened the commentary from the wrong radio
Italy was one of the few teams that tried to play the game against Spain

of course after the 60th minute the game became quite ugly...

I hate soccer. I had the sound off. But I have rarely seen more lethargic defending that Italyís today.

If you have seen the last 30 minutes, then that is.
Playing with 1 man less against Spain is futile; the players lost hope; and they were physically emptied.

I was watching if on neutral Swiss TV; at the 80th minute instead of saying the classic "Italy still has 10 minutes of hope" they said "Italy must hold on it for 10 more minutes"
(well, that didnít happen)
That explains it well

Have to agree. Some great matches we have seen. And one just have to sit down and enjoy the way Spain plays at the moment. Cant wait till Brazil in 2014. Gonna be a blast, if the trend from this years Euro tournament continues.

italian players were generally out of condition since the first match. And donít forget Italy arrived to the game after only two days off, this is insane in such a tough tournment. They lost against the best team in the world.

I had a Mikkeller Black growler take out from Craft for the game and I was very sad for Italy. Lack of fitness. Their defence was spirited but out of form. Spain had a good game and were the team of the tournament. Nice to see Fabergas and Torres shine. Torres will now improve with confidence and be a completely different player for 2013-2014 season.
