We won't ever properly see just how spectacular their achievements are, because they've become a victim of their own success—meaning championships are simply expected—but Spain were simply incredible .
They were every adjective and more, and must be lauded as the champions of Europe—a claim that they alone deserve and they alone can attest to.
