Del Bosque basks in achievement

Published Add your comment

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque labelled his side's record-breaking performance in Kiev as "extraordinary".

La Roja became the first international side to win three successive major tournaments thanks to their 4-0 win over Italy, the biggest final win in European Championship history. First-half goals from David Silva and Jordi Alba put Spain in control before Fernando Torres added a third late on and then set up Chelsea team-mate Juan Mata to wrap up an incredible win.

Del Bosque said: "It's true we were lucky enough to play a great match. Everything worked for us. It was an extraordinary performance against a difficult opponent."
