"Thanks for all your help interpreting for me at Ronda hospital. Although some of the consultants do speak excellent English they are obviously much happier conversing in their mother tongue. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others."

Spain again! PDF

Spain won the European Football Championship last night by defeating Italy 4-0 in the final in Kiev, Ukraine. In doing so they confirmed themselves as the world leaders at the sport, having won three consecutive major championships: Euro 2008, World Cup 2010 and now Euro 2012.

They also claimed another record by notching up the highest winning score ever in a major championship.

Before the game, the smart money had been on Italy. The Azurri had played really well in defeating much-fancied Germany in the semi-final and Spain, although winning their matches, were playing in a lack-lustre – some said boring – manner.

Yet, on the night of the final in Kiev, Spain dished out a footballing lesson. Comfortably 2-0 up at half time courtesy of goals by Silva and Jordi Alba, once Italy had been reduced to 10 men mid-way through the second half by an injury after they had used all three of their permitted substitues, the game was over.

Two Spanish substitutes, Torres and Mata, helped themselves to a goal each and Spain started to celebrate a fine victory.

The sounds of car horns and an impromptu party could be heard late into the night.
