ONe step Closer but!

FINALLY Spain are one step closer to winning the euro championships. The last time they did so was way back in 1964. Also they are qualifying for a major finals for the first time in 24 years. they did that in style with a superb performance against the Russians. The Russians started off with some vigour and the first half was equally contested. Spain received a big blow when the tournament's leading goal scorer, David Villa had to be substituted in the 33rd minute due to an injury. In came Fabregas. The half ended the way it started.
The second half was when Spain began to dominate and from then onwards it was no looking back. They scored three beautiful goals between the 49th and 81st minutes and on top of that Saint Iker had a second clean sheet in as many games which meant Spain are through to a major finals in 24 years. But as the important rule in every tournament says- never get too excited about Spain at any point in time, we gotta keep our fingers crossed until they have done it for real!
