As usual Spain start a tournament well – this time with a 4-1 win over Russia. Here are some thoughts on the game:
- It was a superb hat-trick from David Villa.
- Torres and Villa have shown they can play together – in many ways this is very worrying!
- The match started as an exciting tournament match, but as it went on, and Spain dominated, it became more like a friendly.
- Once again Spain start well – but will they manage to do better in the knockout rounds?
