Spain v Italy. Euro 2012 Final. 5 beautiful moments to enjoy again.

Spain became the first team to win 3 major International tournaments in a row with a 4-0 win over Italy. Both teams had their moments in the game, with several key chances created, but it was Spain who took theirs and were crowned Champions. Here are my top 5 moments (in the order they occurred):

1. Xavi – Fabregas 1-2, Xavi shot

Xavi plays it into Fabregas, who starting as a False 9, holds the ball and lays it off for Xavi to fire an early warning shot.

2. Silva Goal, Iniesta pass

David Silva heads home the opening goal after more great play from Fabregas and a stunning through ball to start the move by Andres Iniesta.

3. De Rossi Pass, Cassano effort

Gorgeous first time pass by De Rossi out to Antonio Cassano who does brilliantly to cut back inside and get a shot away.

4. Alba goal, Xavi assist

The goal that put 1 Spanish hand on the trophy just before HT. The run and acceleration by Jordi Alba got the full respect it deserved by Xavi who finds him with a lovely pass.

5. Montilivo Pass, Di Natale shot

A stunning reverse pass by Riccardo Montolivo provides Antonio Di Natale with a shooting chance.
