Spain have become the first team to win back-to-back European football Championships by thrashing an overwhelmed Italy 4-0 in Ukraine on Monday.

David Silva and Jordi Alba were Spain's goal scorers after 14 and 41 minutes and Fenando Torres sealed it with number three after 84 minutes, the first player to score in two Euro finals, and fellow substitute Juan Mata added the fourth.
