Euro 2008 Champion

The Euro 2008 just ended last night with a sweet victory for the Spaniards. A 1-0 truimph over the Germans at Vienna.

It was in the first half on 22nd minute played, a sublime header from Fernando Torres came off the far post stunned many of the fans. Like the rest of the world, i too hold my hands together praying, looking disbelieve at the harsh reality. It was a perfect header though the goalkeeper may claim that he had it well covered.

Just when you thought that the Lady Luck was against them, something magical happened. In the 33rd minute, Fernando Torres picked up a through pass from Xavi Hernandes after a slight hustle against the Germans' left back Philipp Lahm, and chipped it over the on coming Jens Lehmann.

It was then the whole arena was filled with roaring cheer and applause. I could even hear my next-door neighbors screaming in joy. I cant be the same, for my parents gonna kill me for waking them up. LOL!!!

El Nino, or better known as Fernando Torres who scored the winning goal.

For a country who suffered a 44 years of misery being rated underachieved had finally silence the critics. Lifting the trophy was indeed a major success for them, rewriting the history. They deserve it.

Unfortunately Cesc Fabregas was summoned to the bench in 63rd minute due to a tactical change. Though there's a sadness shown in his face, but it was okay. Looking back, he made a difference or should i say, immediate impact when he came off the bench against Russians. A massive inspirational efforts that send Spain to the final.

And here you have it, the Spanish titans on the top of Euro 2008 ladder.

the Celebration!!!

How glad am i able to watch it live. Moment like this doesnt always came by knocking at your door. Its like the time when AC Milan vs Liverpool in Champion League few years ago, that was truly one superb match.

Im now tired and sleepy. I dont think i have enough sleep though. Been a norm to me for a late night sleep and resting at 9, is just too drastic for a change. Got me hours of tossing and turning before i finally snooze off. That resulted a very minimal rest through out the night.

Shhh... i nearly caught a big fish in the office today. =x

With my endless yawns and gesture, my colleague Fish Tan, made me a laughing stock. He joked, "You look like a drug addict! The type where hungering for drugs yet cant have one. HAHAHAA!!!". Am i that horrible? LOL.

Last but not least...

SPAIN rocks!!!

As for now, i need to catch up on my lost rest...
