Spain became the first European team to ever win three back-to-back international tournaments as they defended the European Championship with a comfortable 4-0 win over Italy thanks to goals from David Silva, Jordi Alba, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata in Kiev. The game was effectively over at half-time after Spain cut through their opponents with two incisive passes. First it was Andres Iniesta who found Cesc Fabregas to cross for Silva to head home; then it was Xavi whose fine through-ball reached left-back Jordi Alba to calmly slot home. Things were made worse for Italy when third substitute Thiago Motta hobbled off with a hamstring strain in the second half and, unable to make any more changes, the ten-men of Cesare Prandelli stood no chance when Fernando Torres and Juan Mata netted simple efforts late on.Recap | July 01, 2012
