Euro 2012 is reaching its apex, and the final to be played on Sunday is between Spain and Italy.
Yes, this is the Italian team that Spain let off the hook during the group stage. The Spanish team had 90 minutes to think about their strategy and a crucial two or three minutes at the end of their match against Croatia to give Italy the "biscotto". If Spain did that, it would face a lesser opponent in the final. Now, it faces a team that sent the tournament favorite (Germany) packing with a marvellous display of quality all over the pitch. I wrote about what Spain could have done here.
