Final Fun at the Euros: Are Spain the best side ever?

That is the question the football world is asking after last night’s 4-0 demolition of Italy in the Euro 2012 final…

Better than Hungary in the 50s?
Better than Brazil 1970?
Better than Holland’s Total Football?
Better than Maradona’s Argentina?
Better than Germany in 1990?
Better than France 1998-2000?

We’re going to say yes.  Three titles in a row is an extraordinary feat and, though this flies in the face of ‘Got, Not Got’s’ rose-tinted nostalgic philosophy, we’re saying they were the greatest ever and they have the medals to prove it.

Casillas, Arbeloa, Ramos, Piqué, Alba, Busquets, Alonso, Xavi, Silva, Fàbregas, Iniesta, Valdes, Albiol, Javi Martinez, Juanfran, Pedro, Torres, Negredo, Mata, Llorente, Santi Cazorla, Jesus Navas, Reina…

If you have not got ‘Got, Not Got’ by now, you really should have.
Get it here…

    No is the answer. Far from it.
