If Spains doesn't experience the usual sudden stop characterizing national Spanish team at any level, this group is really able to emulate their bigger brothers of Euro2008's memory.

As I have suspected Spain has won but I was a bit surprised about the score. I do still think that Spain will reach the final. The Spanish have a tremendous and lethal attacking force. They are scoring on average between 2 and 3 goals per game and it doesn't matter what opposition they play. I think the Spanish are unstoppable at the moment and I'm sure other teams and their management are watching Spain very closely with some trepidation indeed.
