After wins over Russia and Sweden, Spain went on to beat reigning champions Greece 2-1 in their final Group D match.
The Greeks were actually the dominating side in the first half and got their reward in the 42nd minute when Angelos Charisteas headed home from a free kick.
But Spain regained much of their usual strength in the second half and finally got the equalizer through Ruben de la Red in the 61st minute.
GuÃƒÂ¯za headed back to De la Red, who sent a very powerful shot past Nikopolidis for 1-1.
And with two minutes to go in regular time, it was Daniel GuÃƒÂ¯za to net the winning goal after a well directed cross from Sergio GarcÃƒÂa.
Spain face reigning World Champions Italy in the quarter finals.
