    The Final: Spain v Italy

    Decent effort by Xavi. Italy just half a step off the pace defensively in trying to get blocks in.

      Spain dominating so far. I enjoy watching them like this, it's when they sit back and hold possession that has me sticking a sharp stick in my leg to stay awake.

        Who does performance appraisals on this cock Lawrenson? Surely this bleak, tired sneering negativity is not what any audience demographic wants?

          Silva scores a mighty, Nat Lofthouse-like, header.

            That was coming. Now we'll see what Spain do next, stick or twist?

                What's Spanish for "I never got many with my head"?

                  If my boys are going to lose, at least let it to be to goals like that. Come on Pirlo you useless bastard.

                    Oh bugger. Still, if Spain score another one I can go out for a walk instead.

                          Nice goal. Italy are markedly covering Spain's left side more, but that move came from the right and started with Arbeloa in a load of space.

                          Good presence of mind by Fabregas. You know, he has had an excellent tournament despite not playing in his favoured role.

                          Bad for the game though. Had Italy scored first it would have been more exciting.

                            You could say he was in an Arbeload of spance. Hey hey, maybe I should work as a BBC pundit.

                              Balotelli dummies over a free-kick and finds himself in acres of space to the right of the Spanish wall. Pirlo should really have passed to him there.

                                That goal has woken Italy up.

                                    Italy cannot cope when Spain press them hard, especially in defence.

                                        How long had Chiellini been injured for? He never looked comfortable.

                                        Not going 3-5-2 currently looking like a mistake.

                                          You can get 9/2 now for 1-0 as final score.

                                            Lots of Rioja colors (red-white-green-yellow horizontal stripes), best-looking banners out there. Ironically they recall the italian tricolor.

                                            Chiellini really got taken to the cleaners by Fabergas, who just nailed the assist of the tournament.

                                              Never mind Pique, UEFA are wiping the yellow cards at half-time.

                                                This is a pretty nice pace for any game, never mind a final. Nice response by Italy too.

                                                  Lawrenson was left exasperated earlier on by a foul given for a dangerous tackle where "the player got the ball". The BBC commentator explained that the ref thought it was dangerous, and the tackler was 'out of control' (is that the interpretation?) but Lawro sneered again "but he got the ball".

                                                  Not only does the man clearly have no more understanding of the rules of the game than your average bloke propping up a pub bar, but he clearly didn't understand the rules when he was playing, either, as I'm pretty sure that dangerous tackles would have been penalised in the 80s just the same as they are now. Just maybe not by refs at Anfield.

                                                    Balzaretti has been very good since he came on.
