Euro 2008: Spain Beats Germany In Final (VIDEO)

Spain ended a 44-year streak of losing in major tournaments with a convincing win in the 2008 Euro Cup final against Germany:

A championship 44 years in the waiting is worth a special celebration. Spain made sure it didn't disappoint any of its fans Sunday night, both during its 1-0 victory over Germany to win the European Championship, and after it.

Fernando Torres scored in the 33rd minute and the Spaniards never backed down against such a formidable opponent. Their last significant title came in the 1964 Euros at home.

"It is to me the most important day in Spanish football in many, many years," Torres said.
