Spain soccer coach Vicente Del Bosque hails generation of players

  • Coach Vicente del Bosque has hailed Spain's "great generation of footballers" after their historic win over Italy in the final of Euro 2012.

    La Roja's 4-0 victory in Kiev made them the first team to win three successive major international tournaments.

    Goals from David Silva, Jordi Alba, Fernando Torres, who became the first player to score in two Euros finals, and Juan Mata helped them overpower the Italians by the biggest winning margin in a Euros final.

    They also retained the crown they first won in Vienna four years ago.

    La Roja also claimed their first World title in South Africa.
