Maravilloso partido de España, que machaca a Rusia y jugará la final contra Alemania.

A great night for celebration here in Spain as the national  team ran Russia ragged. There was only one occasion, a few minutes from the final whistle, when Spain's goalkeeper had to do any work. The rest of the game was played more or less in the Russian half.

Now it is to be Spain v Germany on Sunday. Germany looked very dull against Turkey in their semi-final and only scraped through into the final with a late goal

So our hopes are high for a victory for Spain. We'll have to get the cervezas in ready.

PS Those of you who didn't watch the game on Canal + missed a real treat. The commentators on the Spanish channel were singing, shouting and cracking jokes throughout the game.  They added to the excitement, as if that was necessary!
