I would like to congratulate all of my Spanish colleagues for their national team's well-deserved success in the Euro 2008.

Best regards,

Çağdaş

Congratulations, Spain! Jun 30, 2008

I adored your goalkeeper tonight. He was flying like a squirrel on treetops!
Well deserved victory. Even though you missed several opportunities for a higher score, your football is as handsome as your footballers

Gracías por la fiesta!

"Chaıdash Karatash"

I hope this helps.

The letter "ğ" is the killer one!

Felicitaciones España! Jun 30, 2008

As many have already said, it was a well deserved victory, something which doesn't happen all the time

Brilliant game Jun 30, 2008

And being a Liverpudlian, I was of course ecstatic that Torres scored the goal

Bravo España!

Excellent display of ability by Spain Jun 30, 2008

My, these guys can run!

Even our Lahm, the "Speedy Gonzales" of the German team, could not compete with that.

Well-deserved victory for Spain, but the last eighty minutes were just agonizing to watch as a supporter of the German team. It had all started out so well...

It´s only taken the Spanish team 44 years... Jun 30, 2008

but I was more than impressed by the way they controlled the match. Every time I have watched them play at the World Cup I´ve thought: "they have no chance against the likes of Germany". Now, I´m looking forward to the next one, because this is a different team.

And yes, Saint Iker Casillas is a player Spain can´t do without !

Casillas Jun 30, 2008

Iker Casillas is the man! My favourite goalkeeper.
He didn't have to do much at all in the final though. I can't remember any shot that would have been difficult even for a mediocre goalie, let alone one of the best.

Congrats to Spain, even though it's not the same without Raúl for me...

Well done, Spain Jun 30, 2008

As someone who is totally disinterested in football (and a cunning Brit) I was surprised that we didn't see the following headline in the U.K.

"EURO 2008: Liverpool striker manages to see off Chelsea midfielder's team."

Perfectly true.

But no: go for rugby, chaps, it's a man's game.

Italy went for it, and they have given a good account of themselves.

Cheers
Chris

P.S. Failing that - try cricket. We invented it and we lose with boring regularity. A fresh challenge in Europe?

And I agree with JJ Jun 30, 2008

Turkey was an eye-opener. I loved their game.

"Flying St. Squirrel" is home and we're stuck with the traffic jam. It threatens to continue another day...

They call Torres "el caballito". Now I know why: there was an angle from which he really looked as though he were morphing into a horse.

I'm the key to all that! Jul 3, 2008

Hi all,

After many failed attempts, I finally managed to convince my friends and we went to Switzerland and Austria for ten days and watched two live games, against Russia and Sweden.

I can tell you I'll never regret it! The environment was great and the football, not only Spain's football, was a real pleasure to see at last!

It's been great to feel the support Austrians have given us since the very beginning. They all wore the Spain t-shirt and sang the "in"-famous "Y viva España!". Although I'm Catalan and hate the song, I must admit I also sang it. Lol!

As for rugby, we're rubbish. Former Liverpool player Michael Robinson has created a professional rugby league which hopefully is starting this Summer and which includes teams from Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar. I hope this is the beginning of something. Maybe in 20 years Spain will have another team-sport to cheer for!

Carlos
