Will The Real Spain Please Sit Down

Spain demolished a nervy looking Ukraine side 4-0 this afternoon. At least, I think it was Spain. They were wearing Spain's colours, had players with Spanish names, an overabundance of talent on the bench - but they failed to choke in that way Spain are legendary for.

In fact, they were good. Really good. Alonso, Garcia, Ramos, Villa, Torres - all great. Should I risk suggesting that "this could be Spain's year" ?

Nah, so many people have done that in the past and looked foolish. I'm not going to join them just yet. Great game, though.

I have seen them choke in the past, but I've seen them getting robbed more often in Euros and Worl Cups. Remember the Korea game in 2002?

They have been robbed in the past but they have also screwed up on their own. They looked mighty impressive today, though. I'd be nervous if I were in their group.

Yeah, they did get robbed in 2002. I agree with Geoff, though, they were impressive and if they maintain this form only Argentina and the Czechs look able to compete.
