With Italy and Spain getting ready to kickoff in 24 hours for the European Championship, a lot of talk has been centered around how great both these teams have been. The incredible talents of Andres Iniesta, Andrea Pirlo, Xavi and Mario Balotelli have propelled their respective sides within one game of glory.
