Puyol powers Spain into the final
Although it was Germany who showed plenty of determination, especially in the first half, Spain did what they do the best, producing a 57% possession overall and a 88% passing efficiency, while Joachim Low’s side sent only two shots on target and six corners. The opening came in the late 73rd minute when Barcelona’s defender transformed Xavi’s corner into a headed goal and Spanish dream into reality.
Vicente del Bosque’s side will meet the Netherlands into the final on the 11th of July, both teams longing for this trophy because none of them held it ever. Better said, we’ll be about to see which one of the two teams will make their dream look more real.11
