Germany vs. Spain: 0-1
The tournament’s best team is European champion. Period. The Spanish, never famous for beeing a good team in tournaments, have finally been rewarded for their exciting soccer. They were the strongest of all teams in the field. They offered fast and modern offensive soccer at the highest technical level. This was shown par excellence in the 33rd minute, as Fernando Torres scored the game-winner after a brilliant pass by Xavi.
A promising future as a comfort
Germany’s reaching the final should not cover up the fact that the German team is able to do much more than it showed during Euro 2008. The team should focus on strengths that have been developed in recent years: to base attacks with quick combination moves on a sound defense and close the deal decisively.
Today`s celebration at the Fanmeile Berlin
After all, the German soccer team received a stunning welcome in Berlin by hundrets of thousands of fans today around 2 p.m. Coach Joachim Löw and his players were welcomed by Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit, before the players walked on stage to applause at the huge “fan mile” at the city’s Brandenburg Gate.
