Alba impresses and Torres comes on to score as Spain crush Italy
Flying full-back Jordi Alba top scored on Sunday night as Spain made history by winning their third successive major tournament title with a 4-0 win over Italy in the Euro 2012 final.
The new Barcelona man became the highest scoring Fantasy League player in the game as he earned 12 points on the night, taking him to 34 in total for the tournament, for his goal and clean sheet.
Fernando Torres came off the bench to score one and make another, earning himself 10 points, and he also picked up the golden boot.
Midfield maestro Xavi scored eight points for two assists, while Chelsea's Juan Mata scored six points for netting the fourth goal just moments after coming on as a substitute.
David Silva opened the scoring after 14 minutes when he brilliantly headed in Cesc Fabregas' clipped cross following a flowing move.
Italy then lost left-back Giorgio Chiellini to a knee injury, meaning he scored -2 points for the game as he conceded a goal and was subbed off before picking up his Defender Game Played points.
Just before the break Alba raced onto a precise Xavi pass and finished excellently to double the Spaniards' advantage.
Italy made one more change at half-time, and then introduced Thiago Motta not long into the second half.
He lasted just four minutes before his hamstring went, meaning Italy were down to 10-men for the final half an hour, as they had no substitutes left.
Spain patiently kept possession before Xavi sent Torres clear and he passed the ball into the corner of the net to make the game safe six minutes from time.
Four minutes later Torres turned provider as he slotted the ball off to fellow substitute Mata to tap into an empty net and complete the scoring.
