Del Bosque wants final hurrah
Vicente del Bosque has called on his Spanish players to produce their best one more time after reaching the final of Euro 2012.
Despite having seemingly not been at the top of their game for the majority of the competition in Poland and Ukraine, the reigning champions are on course to retain their title.
Spain were certainly below par in their semi-final encounter against Portugal, being taken all the way to penalties following a goalless draw.
In the end Cesc Fabregas sent Spain through with the winning spot kick and they will now face the winner of Thursday's second semi-final, Germany against Italy.
Spain have had to deal with their fair share of critics at Euro 2012 after being branded as boring but another win on Sunday and they will be the first team to win three successive major tournaments.
Punters might fancy backing Spain with their free bet to make history at the weekend given the talent within their squad.
Del Bosque believes it doesn't matter who his team face at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev as he believes their best should be good enough to make them European Champions again.
"The players have played so many matches and they have to show their best in one more," he said.
"The other semi-final will be a great match and whoever our opponent is in the final, that will also be a great match. But we don't care who our opponents are."
