Defending champions Spain secured an unprecedented third successive major trophy as they beat Italy 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final. It is the biggest winning margin in the history of the tournament - beating West Germany’s 3-0 win over the Soviet Union in 1972. Goals from David Silva and Jordi Alba gave Spain a comfortable advantage in the first half. Further goals came from substitutes Fernando Torres and Juan Mata - a minute after coming on - in the second-half.
