although i agree about the hating,

it is still not the same team.

even the great Xavi is not playing at the same level.
he has been off.

no villa. torres is MIA on the field.
silva seems too tired from the long EPL season.
no puyol. Pique has had an off season.
slow paced and some bad decisions.
ramos cut off his hair.

iniesta is still class to watch.
iker still has the holy gloves on. saint iker indeed.

the style may be the same, more or less.
but the finishing touch is not there. no one is scoring.

so that is the difference between Euro 2008, the spain that won the world cup in 2010, and the team that will have a tough time beating germany.

the germans are the favorites to win the Eurocup 2012, IMO.

as to the penalty decision to have Ronaldo take the last free kick and Cesc asking to take the last one....:

I don't like Ronaldo but karma for him for supporting Spain

I have a hard time agreeing with the fact that the spanish game is boring. For me, football games are sometimes comparable to a chess game, it's all about making the right moves. It's a bit like saying films with not a lot of action are boring, without paying attention to the quality of the script and all. I am all for quality, and it seems like Spain's slow and stategic prudence has paid off well. All they miss is a striker such as David Villa to get a high score.

^ Yes! The main objective of the game is to win and if you can put on a good show while doing so that's great, but I don't think many teams care so much if they are entertaining as long as they get the outcome they want. Spain concentrates on maintaining possession of the ball and it's what has worked for them all these years. I'll take a 'boring' team who wins over an exciting team who loses any day.

I don' know why Spanish people and media over here think that others "hate" Spain - you only have to read and listen to the radio and watch TV here and you feel like the Spanish football team is a big victim fighting against all odds. Come on, they are world champions and european champions so of course everyone wants to win against them but that is not hating them!

ohhh well, that's exactly what Rajoy and the other thieves want Spanish people to work like: enjoy the football and as long as Spain win, make them believe it's all that matters and happiness is the greatest when you win in football. Just like Rajoy said to DelBosque: You have to win for the people, for Spain and for us! - à la: Bread and circuses - and it seems to work unfortunately

I think the Spanish are taking this a little too seriously (but considering everything I don't blame them).
Can someone please explain what is happening here?

Islandili: Apparently people call him portuguese because he defends Ronaldo. That people are trying to put everyone against each other: Spain against Ronaldo even though he plays in RM, the clubs against each other even though the national team has great players from different clubs, Spain & Portugal against each ther even though they´re neighbouring countries.

He talk about bad people say "you aren't spainish", "you go to portugal" and "you go cristiano",
He crying explain the emotions remembering all of the years spain lost as people laugh and talk the Spain like a "ugly duck" or "fourth world". The honor look this team the football player and when arrive right now (with so effort). The relation with Portugal like a brothers and neighbors.

this Roncero-guy crying is one of the worst hateful and unfair "pseudo-journalist" there is in sports in Spain - terrible person always trying to cause hate and division and problems in Spain especially between Madrid and Barca and now he is pretending to be for brotherly love between Spain and Portugal - I have no words.

anyway: very excited for the match tonight! I hope the German team will give a positive display showing their strength and beating the Italians without troubles
