Spain Claims European Crown

Fernando Torres struck the only goal of the game as Spain ended their 44-year wait for a major international trophy by beating Germany in the Euro 2008 final in Vienna.

The Liverpool striker netted the clincher in the 33rd minute, doing superbly to pick up a Xavi through-ball, skip past the challenge of Philipp Lahm before dinking his shot over Jens Lehmann and into the far corner of the net.

Torres had earlier seen a header hit the post as dominant Spain finally banished their reputation of underachieving on the big stage by winning their first major trophy since Euro 1964.

    Spain md deserved to win this championship. I picked them to win from the start. They really showed their quality by adapting to play without David Villa
