Spain has taken its place among football’s all-time great sides by becoming the first team to defend its European Championship after winning the World Cup. The task, now, is to be remembered as the greatest.
The team will now look ahead to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil to retain its title from two years ago in South Africa. If the Spaniards can do that, it will be virtually impossible to deny them the moniker of best team ever.

THE OTTER HAS SPOKEN: ‘Ferret’ the otter chooses Italy to beat Spain at Sunday’s Euro 2012 final. Who is your pick?
Did Ronaldo taunt Messi? Cristiano Ronaldo will be mentioned often here, but the first mention will centre on the rivalry the Portuguese superstar has been stoking with a player who is not even eligible to play at Euro 2012. Comparisons between Ronaldo and Argentina’s Lionel Messi have become a storyline this month, and that will likely remain the case after Ronaldo found a television camera after scoring the game’s only goal on Thursday. Upon further review, it appears Ronaldo mouthed the word “Messi” before blowing a kiss into the camera.
At least that’s what the talk was on Twitter. Now it seems he was saying ‘para ti’ …we’ll leave it for you to decide.
