The result was a repeat of the score in the European championship final two years ago between the same two nations. Do you remember what it was?
For most of the match Spain played their 'tiqui-taki', pass and move, game successfully keeping the ball for most of the time. There was an occasional break forward from Germany when they looked dangerous and one scoring chance for sub Kroos, saved by Casillas.
The Independent's report is an excellent one as usual. Remind yourself of this patient game of artistry by reading it ....as I will do myself from time to time.
