6:30 am on 3 July 2012

Spain are being hailed as one of the greatest footballing teams ever following their Euro 2012 triumph over Italy yesterday.

Spain beat Italy 4-0 and claimed their third international title in a row following wins at Euro 2008 and the World Cup in 2010.

They are the first team to defend a European Championship title.

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque had an embarrassment of riches to choose from during the Euro 2012 tournament and says it's a great era for Spanish football.
