Euro 2012 final goalscorer Jordi Alba voiced his delight with Spain’s comprehensive 4-0 triumph over Italy in Kiev on Sunday.
Spain became the first national side in history to successfully defend their European title, courtesy of goals from David Silva, Jordi Alba, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata, and the 23-year-old was overwhelmed with their success.
“My team-mates had made history before, but this was my first European Championship. I’m very happy and I can’t really believe everything that’s happening,” Jordi Alba told Telecinco.
“I am delighted with this victory. Now it’s time to enjoy the success with the national team. Euro 2012 has been very good for us.”
The left-back then went on to discuss his imminent move from Valencia to Barcelona, and thanked the people who had supported him over the years.
“Valencia and Barcelona have reached an agreement, everything went well,” he said.
“I thank the people from [home town] L’Hospitalet, my family and my friends.”
Jordi Alba will ink a five-year deal with Barcelona upon completion of his medical.
