Champions: Spain are looking to become the first team to win a third successive major tournament
For the Spanish, tomorrow night represents an opportunity to make history; to become arguably the most successful group of players we have seen. Certainly the most successful group of European players.
A Spanish team built on the foundations of a brilliant Barcelona side but sprinkled with quality and genius from Real Madrid and Manchester City.
No European team have ever won three major tournaments in a row, and one glance at the personal records of Xavi and Iniesta, in particular, makes for truly extraordinary reading.
