Spain 4-0 Italy
Spain made history by retaining their European Championship crown as they swept aside Italy 4-0 in Kiev in a one-sided final.
Italy coach Cesare Prandelli opted to recall Ignazio Abate at right-back, while Spain's Vicente Del Bosque dropped Alvaro Negredo to the bench, leaving his side with no recognised strikers.
Spain made a bright start with their usual passing game causing the Azzurri plenty of problems and 14 minutes in the holders were ahead.
Cesc Fabregas got away down the right and his cutback from the by-line was headed home superbly by the arriving David Silva.
Italy were restricted to a couple of long-range efforts, with Iker Casillas fisting away drives from Antonio Cassano and Riccardo Montilivo.
Four minutes before the interval it was 2-0 as Xavi played in a perfect pass for Jordi Alba to race clear and slot a low, left-foot shot past stranded Azzurri keeper Gianluigi Buffon.
Early in the second half sub Antonio Di Natale had a shot blocked as Italy tried to find a way back into the game, but their hopes were ended when Thiago Motta went down injured and left his side to play on a man short.
Spain then added salt to the Italian wounds in the closing minutes as Fernando Torres ran clear to place a shot beyond the diving Buffon.
The scoring was complete two minutes from time as Torres again broke the Azzurri backline and this time unselfishly set up Juan Mata to sidefoot home into an empty net.
