EuroVison: At Long Last
It’s been 44 years, but Spain has finally broken the jinx, and perhaps shed the label “Choke Artists” as well.
La Furia Roja beat Germany 1-0 on the back of a single Fernando Torres goal. Congratulations, Spain!

Congratulations, Spin !
Congrats to the Spanish team though I thought the substitution of Fabregas was kind of dubious, but I gotta say Xavi Alonso was simply superb and it could’ve been 3-0 had Senna and the other one connected.
In my eyes the head butt by Senna on Ballack was intentional when looking at the replays but he’s a big boy and he handled it very well.
Spain has had the depth on the bench over the Germans and for the first time I saw a German team that just was OUT OF GAS! very starnge but true!
Alright Cesc now bring the Champions League Trophy to the Emirates.
The headbut was by Silva actually. It was DEFINITELY intentional and pretty disgusting. Was he TRYING to pull a Zidane?
In fact, I was very surprised that the commentator made not ONE Zidane reference. I mean major international competition final and a headbut takes place and NOTHING?!
Probably should have been sent off; there’s no place for that.
