very good prediction indeed, i had spain up for the win but i also expected france to put up more of a fight coming out of their last game.

Guillem, I love reading your posts because it is nice to get a view of other teams/nations without the ridiculous inferioriority complex that the English press have. However, I have really got to disagree with you on the point about Spain not being boring. A few of years ago, they were unbelievable and were fantastic to watch, but this tournament and when watching Barca (most of the Spanish side) during last season they seem more concerned with possession stats than actually winning. Don't get me wrong I admire the game they play because it is so simple (which is the beauty of it) but the past year or so they seem to have lost that wow factor
