    Looks back to his best. Be interesting to see if he stays at the Chavs mind.

    Italy losing 4-0 a week too late, I'd have won 100 if they'd done it last week instead

    Yeah you don't really expect a match at this level to be such a singular non-contest. One feels that there wasn't really much Italy could have done either.

    Feel sorry for Italy. They didn't deserve to lose 4-0 - that doesn't reflect the difference between the teams. I actually thought before the injury Italy were looking good for one goal and who knows from there. They passed it around very well - had more possession than Spain at half-time despite being behind.

    Wow. Spain were brilliant. That is all you can say. Fantastic performance from a fantastic team. Best I have seen and if any side betters that in my lifetime they will be worth watching.

    Yeah, after being ambivalent to them throughout the tournament before tonight, I was completely and utterly won over by Spain in this game. Best football I've seen since the Whites had Morrisey and Nevin running the wings.

    Yeah, I agree. I thought they gave a good account of themselves and can be proud of what they accomplished, more of their performances throughout than tonight perhaps. Terrible luck with injuries tonight as well. 4-0 a bit on the harsh side perhaps, but on the other hand I wouldn't say it flattered Spain, definitely their best display of the entire tournament.

    Feel like the BBC pundits attempting to discuss whether or not the current Spain side is the best team ever is a bit of a fool's errand - not a debate I'm particularly interested in having, nor do I believe there is a conclusive answer to - but winning 3 major international trophies in a row is an unrivaled level of achievement, have to hand it to them.

    On a sad note, probably won't get to see Buffon or Pirlo in a major tournament again, one suspects.
