Disappointed with Spain, stunned by Italy, Jeff Stelling makes his prediction for the Euro 2012 Final...Back to story
To be honest i think only a few of people would have tipped Italy to be at the finals. And i thought it was gonna be another Spain - Germany final. but Italy look the stronger side and they will be taking that enthusiasm from the Germany win. And i can really Italy taking the game to Spain. However Spain have been in my opinion terrible. From the standards on how Spain operate. Of course they keep the ball but this year they have just lack the vision and imagination from a Spanish side we've come to known. And i think they were very lucky to make it to the final because Portugal were causing problems. In the end i see Italy winning but this could go anyway.

Finally someone else who sees spain for what they actually have been this tournament!! Poor and overrated! Previous years they were unreal and a pleasure to watch, this year... well theyve been poor, boring and (oddly) look like they lack imagination

Both sides play great football, and whoever wins it in the end will fully deserve it, but I'm backing Italy for this one. The pressure on Spain to win three tournaments in a row may become too much of a burden.

How Can You Blame Spain? They Had Two Less days To rest Their Bodies,the only thing matters is that they won and you should criticize your own country first before criticizing others,your so called "Golden Generation" took only 6 shots against 31 of Italy.Maybe you should stop taking 'Good Points" of your misery performance.

Well if Ronaldo is a glory hunter for being asked to take the last penalty, then that makes Fabregas a glory hunter for being asked to take the last penalty for Spain. I'm Balotelli is performing, wiping the smirk off pundits faces
