Quick Report: Germany 0-1 Spain

Spain captured their first major tournament since 1964 on Sunday, claiming the Euro 2008 title with a 1-0 victory over Germany in Vienna.

Spain started out the more ambitious of the teams and nearly went in front on 23 minutes when Fernando Torres rose to head a cross from Sergio Ramos, but the ball rang off the post with German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann beaten.

Ten minutes later, Torres found the right side of the post, beating Philipp Lahm to a loose ball and sliding it past a charging Lehmann for a 1-0 lead.

Germany lacked ideas and some good touches in the final third of the pitch and rarely threatened Iker Casillas in the Spain goal except for a spell near the hour mark, but they only had half-chances.

Marcos Senna was the closest to the second goal, just missing getting a touch to a header back by substitute Dani Güiza, but they defended well in the end, and took home the Henri Delaunay trophy.
