Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    The final whistle signals the end of the Spanish heartache as their 44-year wait for an international trophy is over at last. Luis Aragonés's side were the better for the majority of the contest, conjured more presentable opportunities, and defended resolutely throughout. Over the course of the tournament, Spain were the top scorers, their attacking football has thrilled the continent and few will argue that they deserve their success.
