Viva Espana!

Spain beat Germany, 1-0 to win the Euro 2008 Football Championship. This is the first international trophy Spain's hoisted in 44 years, longer than nearly all of its players have been alive.

Torres scored for Spain in the 33rd minute on a beautiful little flick of the ball that went over German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann and into the side of the net. After that, Spain kept up a forward offense and a dominating defense that rocked Germany back on its heels.

Spain dominated in shots on goal, as well. With King Juan Carlos and Bundeskanzlerin Merkel looking on, it was a well-played match. Both teams were even in terms of bookings, with two yellow cards apiece.

And that's all from the M2C Sports Desk.
