Spain will play Germany in the final of Euro 2008 after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Russia at the Ernst Happel Stadium.

Xavi, David Guiza and David Silva grabbed second-half goals to stun the Russians and end 24 years of underachievement during which they have not reached the final of a major competition.

There was concern over David Villa after the tournament´s top scorer was replaced before the break after picking up a knock but Cesc Fabregas came on and set up the final two goals and will now be pushing for a starting place.
