Spain became double European Champions and all eyes will turn to the World Cup in Brazil. William Hill make Spain 2/7 to win their qualifying group and 6/4 to do so without losing a game. Once they touch down in Brazil, the Spaniards are 11/2 joint second favourites to win. Spain have now won three major tournaments in a row and are 20/1 to carry on winning tournaments until at least the World Cup in 2018.
As the match kicked off, the focus was on Mario Balotelli, but as the game finished, he had been overshadowed by Fernando Torres who came on and scored one and set one up. Hills offer 1/2 that Torres scores more goals than Balotelli in next seasons Premier League (6/4 that he does not).
Spain were simply unplayable tonight and have now won the right to be called the best European side ever, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. They are 20/1 to win the next two tournaments at least and the way they have played over the last eight years, it would take a brave man to be against them doing it.
