A lot of jubilation

I think you could say that Spaniards were pleased to get through to the semi finals of Euro 2012. By all accounts it was a comfortable win with only one well placed free kick that could have caused La Selección trouble. So they go on to meet Portugal on Wednesday thanks to Xavi Alonso's two goals.

In the meantime England get to play Italy who are apparently not at their best but then neither are England who I understand are defending well but not scoring goals. If England do get through, then they will go on to face their arch rivals, Germany. That is the match that all England supporters fear. 

I’ve said it so many times on this blog that I am no fan of football and so know very little about it. However, I will predict now that Spain will face Germany in the final and that could be anybody’s game. Looking at the statistics Spain have conceded the least number of goals but Germany have scored more goals. Spain have had more shots on target and have managed to keep the ball more often so who knows. There is still Portugal to beat before we can even think about that.
