VIENNA (SW) – The long forty four year wait for Spain to win their second European Championship is over.

A goal in the thirty third minute of the first half by LiverpoolÂ’s Spanish striker Fernando Torres sealed the fate of the Germans.

After a tentative beginning by both sides the game soon developed into a fast and free – flowing spectacle with Spain fully deserving their victory. In terms of ideas the Spanish had more to offer.

Apart from the first ten minutes and another ten minutes midway through the second half where Germany looked dangerous, Spain were fully deserving of their victory.

Joachim Löw’s comments before the match in which he stated that the Spanish team never had any weaknesses was certainly vindicated.

The teams were separated by TorresÂ’ thirty third minute strike when the Liverpool striker chipped the ball passed former Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann.

The match was played in a good spirit with both teams displaying respect for each other.

The match was a personal triumph for Spanish coach Aragones who had his critics during the early phases of the qualifying rounds for his team selections.
