UEFA Euro 2012 Italy Set To Battle Spain For The Championship
Now that the world has had a few days to recover from the shock of Italy ousting Germany in the semifinals of Euro 2012, we can now turn our attention to the Championship Final. It will be Spain versus Italy for all the marbles on Sunday, July 1, 2012, at 2:45 PM ET from the amazing Kiev Olympic Stadium, in Kiev, Ukraine. This is a rematch of the Euro 2012 tournament opener that ended in a 1-1 draw – exactly three weeks ago.
Italy Rides Super Striker Balotelli To Euro 2012 Final
After calling Spain to defeat Portugal, we felt pretty good about going two for two in the semifinals but it just wasn’t meant to be. Make no mistake, the Italians played well, behind a first half double from super striker Mario Balotelli, but Germany looked lethargic throughout the match. That was especially true on defense as the Germans suffered their first competitive game defeat since they lost 1-0 to Spain in the 2010 World Cup.
Spain Looks To Go Back-To-Back & Three-Peat In Euro Championship
Even though Spain made it to the UEFA European Football Championship, we feel as though we still haven’t seen their best effort. Buoyed by three wins and two draws, the defending Euro Champion Spaniards have advanced to the final match for the fourth time over 14 Championships. They would join Germany as the only team with three Euro victories and would be the first squad to do it in back-to-back tournaments.
